1972-03-28 Jose Napoles w co 7 (15) Ralph Charles, The Arena, Wembley, London, England - WORLD. Referee: James Brimmell. Sticking to a jab-and-move routine rather than going with his normal aggressive tactics probably brought the challenger some time, but in doing so he expended a fair amount of energy while Napoles (146¼) merely waited. In the fourth, Charles (147) was dropped by a right to the body but was soon up and despite losing his gumshield three times in the session he boxed reasonably well until Napoles cut loose in the seventh. After hurting Charles with a right to the jaw, Napoles poured in a whole range of sharp combinations before the British champion was sent crashing to be counted out with just eight seconds of the round remaining.
