1969-12-12 [[Ruben Olivares]] w rsc 2 (15) [[Alan Rudkin]], Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: John Thomas. Put down midway through the first round, Rudkin (118) bravely got up to take the fight to Olivares (117½) and to make it to the bell. At the start of the second, Rudkin again took the fight to the champion with partial success before being downed again by the ferocious-punching champion. Somehow he arose, but a left to the ribs followed by two rights to the jaw sent the game Liverpudlian to the floor to be rescued by the referee with 30 seconds remaining on the clock.
