"Former four time world champion Ruben Olivares of Mexico City knocked out a Thai imposter at the Sports Arena, an investigation by the California State Athletic Commission has revealed. Instead of meeting Pajet Lupikanete, featherweight champion of Thailand, as scheduled, Olivares, a former two time world bantamweight and featherweight king, faced a flyweight named Chalongsuk Pornseanfa, the No. 4 contender in Thailand. Lupikanete never left Thailand. The fight lasted two minutes and fifty eight seconds." -United Press International
