1972-03-19 [[Rafael Herrera]] w co 8 (15) [[Ruben Olivares]], City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WORLD. Referee: Ray Solis. Having struggled to make the weight, Olivares (118), who was cut on the right eye in the sixth round, was lethargic by his normal standards and had trouble getting his punches off. His defence was also sloppy and leaky. Meanwhile, the unheralded Herrera (118) carried the fight to the champion and it came as no surprise to those watching when, in the eighth round, he ripped in a left hook-right cross which floored Olivares heavily and saw him counted out at 1.20 of the session.
