"Rudy Garcia today eyed a chance to recapture the California featherweight championship on the basis of his impressive performance in scoring a knockout over Mexican star Jose Lopez after only 50 seconds of their scheduled 10 round main event at the Olympic Auditorium. Garcia, 125 3/4, Los Angeles, registered his seventh straight win Tuesday night by sending Lopez, 124, Mexico City, to the canvas for an eight count shortly after the opening bell and then flooring his opponent for the full count seconds later. Garcia used two chopping rights to the chin to put Lopez down the final time." -United Press
