1993-05-08 [[Julio Cesar Chavez]] w rsc 6 [[Terrence Alli]], Thomas & Mack Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Although the challenger took the fight straight to Chavez (140), peppering him with left jabs and bursts of punches, it did not take the latter very long to warm to the task at hand and he was soon hammering away with ferocity. For the next four rounds it was much of the same as Chavez dissected Alli (139) a bit at a time and at the end of the fifth a barrage of head blows left him on unsteady legs and ready to go. Starting the sixth fast, Chavez dropped Alli on his back for ‘eight’ with a crunching left hook and when the latter was back on his feet he was chased down with such viciousness that the referee was forced to stop the contest after just 45 seconds of the session. There was a certain amount of confusion over the stoppage as the third man had not been as emphatic as he should have been, but the fight was over.
