1968-01-28 Chartchai Chionoi w rsc 13 (15) Efren Torres, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. In a war of attrition, Torres (111½), cut over the left eye and floored in the second, was eventually stopped by Chionoi (109¾) at 1.23 of the 13th round due to the eye damage, which took 15 stitches to repair. None of this failed to stop the challenger from coming forward in a non-stop slugging match and the referee even had him ahead at the time of the finish.
