1982-10-27 Jeff Chandler w rsc 9 (15) Miguel Iriarte, Resorts International Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. Despite not being floored, the game but inept Iriarte (117½), badly cut on the bridge of the nose, was picked apart by Chandler (117¾) who used every punch in the book while basically treating the contest as a sparring session. In the ninth round when Iriarte was belted into the ropes, having to hang on to save himself from falling, the referee had seen enough, bringing matters to a close at 2.20 of the session.
