1989-11-16 Michael Moorer w rsc 1 Jeff Thompson, Resorts International Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Earl Morton. Having looked pedestrian in his last title defence, Moorer (175) soon had his fellow southpaw in some difficulty. Knocked over by a solid jab and cut over the left eye, with it being clear that Thompson (175) was in real trouble Moorer was not going to let him off the hook. Unleashing a tremendous right hook Moorer sent Thompson crashing down again, but this time the referee called the fight off on the 1.46 mark without bothering to take up the count.
