smooth as butter

Didn't know smooth and wild could go together. But the latter was definitely the case. Impressive, but the man was all over the place and his punches were far from pretty.

Look at his feet. I felt the combination that dropped Urbina was very accurate.

Urbina was no bum, he was an accomplished fighter who had never been knocked out. Napoles took him apart in just one round.

I said he was wild, not uncoordinated.

Very accurate my ass....accurate enough. As accurate as is expected going at the pace he was. It was a RJJ type performance.

That was just his nickname. Mantequilla means butter in spanish.

That I know, thought you were commenting on the way he fought. I'm not saying he was never smooth, just didn't show up in this fight.

He may have looked wild at times but he was in complete control of the fight. Urbina is not the calibre of an opponent that you can take out by just going wild and throwing punches. This is a man who had been in with the best lightweights of his time and had never been knocked out.

This was not a typical performance by Napoles, certainly, but it shows that he could be very aggressive as well, atleast in his earlier days.

When he punched Urbina's arm up in the air it threw him off balance, making the following combination easy to land.

He actually landed that punch on Urbina's temple. I'd say that's what threw him off balance.

It grazed his temple, but the loss of balance came from swinging his arm way out of position.
