Notes

  • Boza-Edwards was down in the 2nd round.
  • Chacon cut over left eye in round two.
  • Chacon overcame a 3rd round knockdown and bad cuts over both eyes to floor Boza-Edwards in the 12th.
  • Steele halted the action in both the 7th and 8th rounds to have Chacon's cuts checked by ringside physician, Dr. Flip Holmansky.
  • Fight was named Ring Magazine Fight of the Year.
  • Although Chacon was the reigning WBC Junior Lightweight champion and Boza-Edwards the WBC's number 1 contender, this bout was not sanctioned by the WBC as Chacon had supposedly signed a contract with Don King to fight Hector Camacho first. Chacon would be stripped of the title June 27, 1983 for failing to defend against Camacho.
