Re: What were the betting odds on Monzon vs Napoles???
The boxing world at that time...the writers and other talking heads, many of them gave Napoles a very good chance. They thought that he would nake Monzon look slow, clumsy and like a cigar store Indian. Angelo Dundee, who worked Napoles' corner was sure his man would win. The fight got a big build up and was not percieved as the mismatch that many have since thought of the fight.
