16 October Chucho Castillo w rsc 14 (15) Ruben Olivares, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Dick Young. Castillo (118) finally made it to the top of the pile when Olivares (118), who was initially cut over the left eye when accidentally butted in the first, was stopped at 2.27 of the penultimate round. Although the champion dominated most of the action up until the tenth it was still punch for punch. However, as his eye damage worsened Castillo picked up the pace to score heavily before the referee called a halt when it was obvious that Olivares could suffer lasting damage if he continued.
