1981-07-25 Jeff Chandler w co 7 (15) Julian Solis, Resorts International Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Working at close quarters, Solis (117¼) made life difficult for the champion, who was never really able to establish his jab-and-move routine, being clutched and closed down at every opportunity. However, by the sixth it was noticeable that Solis was tiring and that Chandler (115¾) was getting to him. Coming out for the seventh Chandler was all business as he chased after Solis, and following some hurtful punches to the challenger’s head he landed a tremendous short right to the jaw that saw the Puerto Rican crash down to be counted out with just two seconds of the round remaining.
