    R.I.P. "Mantequilla" Napoles.

    Coincidentally, Peter Fonda also passed away today and he was also 79.

    Reading his boxing career and he was an amazing fighter. Castro banned boxing so Napoles had to leave and become a Mexican citizen. Jose had some good knockouts on his record and travelled the world winning the welterweight title in Japan.

    Napoles fought the great Monzon at middleweight which was probably a crazy thing to do in retrospect and lost to our John H Stracey in an upset.

    Got to find some of his fights he seemed like a big puncher.

    I would recommend the two fights with Curtis Cokes, the two fights with Hedgemon Lewis, and the second fights with Ernie Lopez and Billy Backus. Also, his win over Emile Griffith.

    Interesting thing about Napoles that a friend of mine pointed out... you can watch every one of his fights and you will rarely- if ever at all- see him block a punch. He slips or otherwise avoids them but always has both hands free to counter. Carlos Palomino talked about sparring 3 rounds with Napoles when Palomino was an amateur; he said that the Napoles jab was like getting hit with a right hand.

    though he did both well, napoles seemed biased to the outside slip more so than the inside slip, and there is not a lot you can do with the outside slip, other than to dip away and come back over.



    the jabbing fighter really likes to get this slip because it is a two part motion. that is, you have to dip and then you have to come back over, unlike the inside slip, which can be paired with a punch, the right hand, in one motion. the reason that this benefits the jabber though, is because the two part motion lets him get just a little extra to see the slip, throw his right hand, and slip the counter right hand through the space next to his right ear and over his right shoulder, and counter the counter as it is coming back over.



    that is what the jabber likes, and, if he is a good jabber, the result he will produce when you give him the outside slip. the reason he can do all this is because it has a two part motion. now, let it just be said that, when the jabber sees the inside slip, its a very hairy situation for him, because that slip can be paired with a right hand and thrown all in one sudden motion, instead of the comparatively predictable, two part motion. i can tell you that seeing that slip on the end of his jab makes the jabber nervous.

    but there is one other punch, that can be paired with the outside slip and thrown all in one motion, instead of a two part motion, and that is a punch that napoles threw.



    i dont really understand why, but not a lot of fighters actually throw this punch. alexis arguello threw it. anyway, this adds complexity to the outside slip, because now instead of just dipping and coming back over with a counter right hand in two motions, it can also hit you suddenly all in one motion, with the hook, literally as soon as you see it. that makes the outside slip a little more complicated now. the jabber hates that. because what the jabber really wants most of all, and the reason that he has become a jabber, is to be in control. adding complexity is the opposite of what the jabber wants because it places immense restrictions on his ability to predict outcomes with any real accuracy. maybe, enough restrictions, that he will not want to jab. let it be said that, unless you are carlos monzon, jabbers did not like fighting jose napoles.
