2001-06-16 Julio Pablo Chacon w rsc 6 Istvan Kovacs, Kiss Ice Stadium, Budapest, Hungary - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Losing his title at the first time of asking, Kovacs (126) had taken the first four rounds by dint of better boxing before being floored twice in the fifth, firstly by a solid right and secondly by a cracking left hook. Saved by the bell, Kovacs somehow stepped up for the sixth but after he was badly rocked by another Chacon (125) left hook the referee called a halt with just 15 seconds on the clock.
