NYSAC World featherweight title
World Junior Lightweight Title
"In 15 rounds of boxing packed with scintillating ringwork, both defensive and offensive, and carrying the added thrill of a champion almost toppled off his throne, Chocolate emerged with the decision over little LaBarba.... The majority of the 14,000 who witnessed the battle however disagreed." Two judges gave it to Chocolate while the referee made it a draw. The New York Times. (LaBarba severely injured an eye while training for this bout, resulting in its eventual removal.)
