Leon of Mexico won the vacant WBO welterweight title with a knockout in the first round. Aceves won the vacant WBO lightweight title with a unanimous decision in front of about 3,000 at Santa Ana Stadium.

Jackie McCoy, longtime Southland boxing trainer who developed five world champions in a 46-year career, died Monday at 73 after a long fight with cancer. He is perhaps best known for bringing a popular Long Beach teenager named Mando Ramos to the world lightweight championship in 1969. But he also made world champions of welterweights Don Jordan (1958-'60) and Carlos Palomino (1977-'79); plus featherweight Raul Rojas (1968) and lightweight Rodolfo Gonzalez (1972-'74).
