25 August Melchor Cob Castro w pts 12 Jesus Chong, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Jose Cobain. Scorecards: 118-108, 118-108, 117-109. Although forcing the fight, Chong (107½) was unable to impress himself on the awkward southpaw challenger who confused him throughout with his unorthodox movement and fast hands. On and on it went with Chong going nowhere, and even when Cob Castro (108) suffered a badly cut right eye in the ninth the champion was unable to take advantage as the fight drew to its ultimate conclusion.
