"Jose Torres, making his first start as a light heavyweight, scored a stunning 1st round knockout of Bobo Olson Friday night. The end came with shocking abruptness at 2:51 of the 1st of a scheduled 10 rounder. Olson appeared to be moving along nicely. Then Torres opened up a flashing, two-handed flurry. Olson looked up into the midst of it, a left hand caught him flush on the chin and it was over. He was on his knees in an almost prayerful pose in front of referee Johnny Lobianco when the count reached ten." -Associated Press
