1966-10-15 Jose Torres w co 2 (15) Chic Calderwood, Hiram Bithorn Stadium, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WORLD. Referee: Teddy Martin. Getting a crack at the title after several years of waiting, Calderwood (175) made a reasonable start, as did the champion, and there were no early signs of what was to come. The second round began in much the same fashion, but once Torres (175) had thrown a tremendous right over the top of Calderwood’s guard the fight was over as the latter crashed to the floor to be counted out on the 2.06 mark.
