'Napoles Signs For A Bout With Akron Fighter'

Jose 'Mantequilla' Napoles - 58-4-0 {38 KO's} - (144 lbs.)
Fate 'Akron' Davis - 33-5-1 {25 KO's} - (144 lbs.)

The 28 1/2 year - Jose Napoles, the #1 WBA Light-Welterweight takes on
Akron, Ohio's - 30 1/2 year-old Fate Davis, the #11 WBA Welterweight,
in a bout scheduled for Saturday Night - February 15th at the Arena Coliseo
in Mexico City.

Jose Napoles will receive a $5000 fight purse, and the American Welterweight
Davis will receive $2200.

A contract weight of 144 lbs. has been stipulated.

'Akron' Fate, at 5' 10" - is a tough and rugged, thin-bodied slashing-puncher, and a very
hard hitter. Davis is one who can slice up his opponents with his punches.

The thin-skinned (above the eyes) 'Mantequilla' will have to be very careful in this bout.

Fate Davis
