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. Once again both men went at it hammer and tongs, but this time round the challenger was better conditioned. Losing the title in his first defence, the tough Castillo (117) was unable to keep Olivares at bay, especially in the latter sessions.
