"Mexico's Ruben Olivares, a 2-1 underdog, battered a weakened Bobby Chacon into submission in the 2nd round Friday night to capture the WBC featherweight title. Olivares, 125 1/4, had Chacon, 124 1/2, down twice and referee Larry Rozadilla finally stopped the one-sided bout at 2:29 of the 2nd round. Olivares floored Chacon midway in the 2nd round with a left-right combination. Chacon got up, but was pinned in Olivares' corner where the popular veteran then battered him with a steady stream of lefts and rights that finally sent him to the canvas for the second time. Rozadilla stopped the bout with Chacon taking a fierce beating in Olivares corner." United Press International
