Default 1987: Adilson "Maguila" Rodrigues vs James "Bonecrusher" Smith- Clip

Good to see this footage ! First time I put my eyes on it.....

Maguila wins a very controversial decision....but he had his moments, we can see that.....

Maguila was well ranked by The Ring at the time (which surprises me to be honest....because I donīt think he was that good)....

Thanks for posting a thread on Adilson and providing footage of that fight.. I have always wondered what he looked like in some of his other bouts, after seeing him fight Holyfield 1989. He was a decent boxer with a respectable punch... he just didn't have whiskers to take a big shot.

THat was an ugly knockdown which forced the stoppage. Apparently that same dude beat Rodriguez earlier in his career.
