1987-04-18 [[Julio Cesar Chavez]] w rsc 3 (12) [[Francisco Tomas Da Cruz]], The Amphitheatre, Nimes, France - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Out of his depth against the classy Chavez (130), the taller Da Cruz (130), who failed to utilise his advantages in height and reach, was under pressure right from the start as he went toe-to-toe with the champion. Sent reeling into the ropes in the first as Chavez opened up with heavy-handed combinations to head and body, Da Cruz took much of the same in the second before the referee decided that he had seen enough when halting the one-sided affair at 2.35 of the third.
