Description : Here we have an original onsite onsite main event fight poster in association with fight sponsors Caesars Palace. Billed as "La Batalla", on May 6, 1995 for the WBO and IBF lightweight championships. The fight is notable for being the first pay-per-view headlined by De La Hoya, who would eventually go on to become the biggest draw in boxing pay-per-view history.

De La Hoya had little trouble with IBF Title holder Ruelas, he dominated the 1st round with his left jab, landing 24 of them, while Ruelas was unable to get going offensively and didn't land a single jab in the round. Early in the round De La Hoya caught Ruelas with a shot that seemed to daze Rualas and effected his balance throughout the round. De La Hoya would end the fight in the 2nd round. With a little past a minute gone by, De La Hoya dropped Ruelas to the canvas with a left hook. Rualas got back up, and though clearly hurt, was allowed to continue. De La Hoya quickly dropped Ruelas for the 2nd time with a right hand soon after. Referee Richard Steele again allowed Ruelas to continue, but De La Hoya again went on the attack and landed a flurry of unanswered punches, causing Steele to quickly step in and end the fight. at 1:43 of the round.
