1971-04-02 : Ruben Olivares 117 lbs beat Chucho Castillo 117 lbs by UD in round 15 of 15

"Former titleholder Ruben Olivares, up quickly from a knockdown in the 6th round, administered a savage beating to Chucho Castillo Friday night and regained his world bantamweight championship in 15 bruising rounds. Castillo, 117, decked Ruben with a wild overhand left hook in the 6th round. However, Olivares, also 117, was up at three and barely lost the round despite the knockdown. Castillo's only other great round came in the 13th with a desperation rally. But on most cards he even lost that round as Olivares unleashed a damaging body attack." -Associated Press
