1980-12-06 [[Thomas Hearns]] w co 6 (15) [[Luis Primera]], Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBA. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Shaken up badly in the opening round after Primera (146¾) waded into him, the champion hit back solidly in the second to drop the Venezuelan on the seat of his pants for ‘four’. After biding his time in the third and fourth, Hearns (146½) unleashed heavy lefts and rights to the head to drop Primera again before cutting loose with more solid punches to put the latter down for the full count with one minute of the session remaining. The final punch landed was a smashing right to the body.
