22 August Ruben Olivares w rsc 5 (15) Lionel Rose, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Showing great power, Olivares (118) had the champion’s number from the opening bell and it was not long before he had made his mark, Rose (118) being put down in the second round from a left-right. By this time one could see that the fight would not be going the distance as the Mexican cleverly mixed his punches up, and in the fifth Rose again hit the deck following a vicious right. On rising, a booming right hand sent him face down and the fight was immediately stopped on the 2.24 mark.
