1980-11-22 Aaron Pryor w rsc 6 (15) Gaetan Hart, Riverfront Coliseum, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - WBA. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Proving far too good for his challenger, Pryor (138½) dropped him twice in the second round, the second time from a crashing overarm right to the head, before settling down with the left jab as the Canadian champion plodded forward. By the fifth it was apparent that the game Hart (138¼) had no real chance of winning as he had neither the firepower nor the movement to worry Pryor. Coming out for the sixth with a vengeance, Pryor soon sent Hart crashing from a right to the jaw, and although the latter got to his feet the referee rescued him on the 51-second mark when he was being punished remorselessly.
