1995-01-28 Gabriel Ruelas w rtd 2 Fred Liberatore, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Starting like a train, Ruelas (129½) knocked his challenger down with a left hook 20 seconds into the fight and had battered him almost without reply when the bell ended the opening round. Somehow surviving, Liberatore (129½), carrying a large swelling under the right eye, came out for the second punching away wildly while being picked off with jabs and uppercuts before sustaining a dangerous cut over his left eye. With the injury too bad for him to continue he was retired by his corner during the interval.
