Default Re: Antonio Cervantes .Vs. Pipino Cuevas

Randy Shields and Andy Price showed what a defensively skilled boxer with little power could do against Cuevas. Also, in Pipino's only live televised defense in the States, I felt that Harold Volbrecht blanked him over the first four rounds, by moving in and out, and peppering Jose with multiple punch combinations. (It was only because of who Cuevas was, and his performing before a wildly partisan Houston audience, that Pipino was even on the scorecards before his left hook kayo.)

Kid Pambele had power, strength, and experience which Shields and Price lacked. My tentative guess here is Cervantes by decision.

I'm not strongly convinced of this outcome because of one name on Pipino's resume: Miguel Angel Campanino. The combined won-loss record of Cuevas's opponents is so staggering, that he could well have padded it even more with a contest against Cervantes. Jose's a worthy HOFer.
