1987-11-21 [[Julio Cesar Chavez]] w rtd 11 (12) [[Edwin Rosario]], Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Richard Steele. Strong and tireless, right from the opening bell the challenger walked through Rosario (135) as if he was not there and when he was hit he merely came back with something better to dishearten the champion. From the fifth round onwards it was all Chavez (134¾), even though Rosario was fighting back, and it was the left hook to the body that was gradually draining all of the champion’s resistance. In the tenth when Rosario’s left eye began to close it looked as though the fight was nearing its end but somehow he got through the round and came out to face his tormentor for the 11th. However, with there being no respite, Rosario was hammered around the ring and when his gumshield was knocked out his corner threw in the towel, the finish being timed at 2.36.
