1988-04-16 [[Julio Cesar Chavez]] w rsc 6 [[Rodolfo Aguilar]], Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Richard Steele. After flooring the southpaw challenger for ‘three’ with a solid right to the head in the first round, Chavez (135), who had earlier been cut over the left eye following a clash of heads, looked to finish it quickly. But despite a lot of pressing by the champion, the tall Aguilar (134½) proved to be both fast and difficult to tag and by the end of the fourth Chavez was distinctly frustrated. In the fifth, however, Aguilar began to fall apart when hurt by a left-right and into the sixth he was dropped by a right to the jaw, before being stopped on the 1.13 mark after he had got up at ‘four’ but had been deemed by the referee as unfit to continue.
