1969-03-17 [[Freddie Little]] w pts 15 [[Stanley Hayward]], Convention Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA/WBC. Referee: Harry Krause. Scorecards: 73-63, 73-64, 74-62. Contesting the vacant title, Little (153½) carried the fight to Hayward (154) throughout, never giving him a moment's respite, while whacking in sharp left counters and solid combinations to head and body. Having been cut on the left eye in the third round and suffering from nasal damage in the 11th, Hayward did his best to fight back, but was generally outpunched and was well outscored. He had been badly staggered in the third, seventh and 11th and his only real success had come when he caught Little with a cracking right to the jaw in the sixth.
