Taylor, who had two points deducted for low blows, was badly hurt in the sixth round from a straight right. In the 8th round, Chavez hit Taylor with a left hook that sent Taylor staggering backward across the ring, where he fell on the seat of his trunks, heels up. Taylor beat the count, but after a Chavez onslaught, Referee Mills Lane stopped the fight.
