1969-02-23 [[Efren Torres]] w rsc 8 (15) [[Chartchai Chionoi]], City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Apparently weight drained and carrying a badly swollen left eye from the second round onwards, Chionoi (110) was unable to withstand the continuous flow of left jabs, left hooks and right crosses thrown by Torres (111), being rescued by the referee towards the end of the eighth, his eye closed shut. With Torres working the eye there was no way the champion was going to survive, and he was being battered around the ring at will at the closure.
