1981-06-27 [[Aaron Pryor]] w rsc 2 (15) [[Lennox Blackmore]], Hacienda Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Stan Berg. Starting like a tornado, the champion walked into the taller Blackmore (139½) throwing punches from both hands and the latter barely made it to the end of the opening session, having been dropped twice by left hooks and cut over the right eye. Resuming where he’d left off, Pryor (140) tore into Blackmore at the start of the second and soon had him down from a right-left hook combination. Up at ‘eight’, Blackmore was again under pressure as Pryor took him to the ropes and following another hefty left hook the referee had seen enough and jumped in to rescue the badly beaten Guyanan after just 58 seconds of the session.
