1971-04-03 Ruben Olivares w pts 15 Chucho Castillo, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: John Thomas. Scorecards: 9-4, 12-4, 10-3. His eye damage from their first fight repaired, Olivares (117) got sweet revenge over his tough rival, despite being dumped by a left hook in the sixth round, as once again both men went at it hammer and tongs. This time round though the challenger was better conditioned, and the tough Castillo (117), nicked over the left eye, was unable to keep him at bay, especially in the latter sessions.
