1994-12-10 Julio Cesar Chavez w rsc 10 Tony Lopez, Baseball Stadium, Monterrey, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Luis Guzman. Although the challenger gave it his best shot and was never floored he was unable to make a dent in Chavez’s armour before being pulled out of the contest by the referee after 1.41 of the 11th round had elapsed. Lopez (139) had only won two rounds at best and with his left eye almost shut tight and the right eye closing fast and bleeding badly the decision was not a difficult one. Although Chavez (140) injured his left shoulder he still had too many punches for the game Lopez and although the latter complained afterwards that he should have been allowed to carry on it was what you have expected from a warrior.
