Eder Jofre beat Jose Medel by KO at 3:00 in round 10 of 12

"Eder Jofre, Sao Paulo, Brazil, moved a step closer to a shot at champion Jose Becerra when he scored an electrifying 10th round knockout over Joe Medel at the Olympic Auditorium. The bout was scheduled for 12 rounds. The bout was stopped with Medel sitting in his corner unable to resume fighting in the 11th round after being floored four seconds before the bell that ended the 10th. Jofre, 118, was on the brink of being knocked out himself several times by his determined 116 1/2 pound opponent. Action was especially hot in the 5th, 9th and 10th rounds. The 9th was Medel's best round. He had his opponent backing up, his face splattered with blood and practically defenseless. Then Jofre Lashed out with a jolting left hook that sent Medel crashing into the ropes as the bell rang. The final round found Jofre connecting with a right cross that dropped Medel. He probably would have been counted out, but the bell sounded four seconds later. Referee Mushy Callahan stopped the fight." -United Press International
