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, the latter 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 the latter 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 Alli was back on his feet he was chased down with such viciousness that the referee was forced to stop the contest with just 45 seconds of the session on the clock. 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.
