Description : Here we have an original vintage onsite poster from Don King productions in association with the Las Vegas Hilton for the WBA Lightweight Title clash between reigning champion Rosario & WBC super/featherweight kingpin Chavez.

Prior to the bout, there were concerns about how Chavez would handle the move up in weight against the hard punching Puerto Rican. Chavez commented, "Everything I've accomplished as champion, and the nine title defenses, would be thrown away with a loss to Rosario." The two fighters nearly exchanged blows during a press conference after Rosario threatened to send Chavez back to Mexico in a coffin. Chavez would ultimately give a career-defining performance as he hammered Rosario, with the referee halting the brutal beat-down in the eleventh round for a TKO victory & lay claim to the WBA Lightweight Championship. HBO Punch-stat showed Rosario landing 263 of 731 punches thrown in the fight (36%) and Chavez 450 of 743 (61%). After the bout, Sports Illustrated ran the headline, "Time To Hail Casar: WBA Lightweight Champion Casar Chavez of Mexico may be the world's best fighter."
