1971-12-14 Jose Napoles w pts 15 Hedgemon Lewis, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 8-6, 9-4, 8-7. Having built up an early lead, Napoles (145¼) eventually became frustrated at his inability to knock his challenger out and began to become arm-weary from his efforts. Coming into the final third, Napoles slashed away with both sweeping and short left hooks to no avail as the speedy Lewis (140¾) either took his best shots or cleverly avoided them. In the 14th Lewis even staggered Napoles with a right flush on the jaw, but that was it and although he had narrowed the points deficit it was not enough.
