  1. You forgot, or ignored. The title defense Nápoles won over Armando Muniz, by a TECHNICAL decision in a fight for 15 rounds that ended in the 12th!!! The doctor stopped the fight cause Jose could not continue!!!! It was the robbery of the century by those who really LIKE the sport of boxing! By the way, I ko’d Clyde Gray in 9 th to win the NABF title also I KO’d Ernie “Indian Red” Lopez in 7 rounds!!!
