Default Re: Jose Napoles 'The Mark of Brilliance'

January 3, 1969

Luis Santampiro

'The Last of the Great Cubans'

Sitting in the Arena Coliseo in Mexico City on a late Sunday Afternoon - December 22, 1968 -
I saw this great fighter by the name of Jose 'Mantequilla' Napoles.

In less than 1-Round, this 'Mantequilla' destroyed a very talented Guyanese fighter by
the name of Lennox Beckles.

I was wondering, just who is this Jose Napoles that they call 'Mantequilla' ('butter'), and why is this
fantastic boxer fighting in relative obscurity in the likes of;

Mexico City, Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana, Los Mochis, Reynosa and Monterrey.
