1981-06-27 Aaron Pryor w rsc 2 (15) Lennox Blackmoore, Hacienda Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Stan Berg. Starting like a tornado, the champion walked into the taller Blackmoore (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 had left off, Pryor (140) tore into Blackmoore at the start of the second and soon had him down from a right-left hook combination. Up at ‘eight’, Blackmoore was again under pressure as Pryor took him to the ropes and following another hefty left hook the referee had seen enough, jumping in to rescue the badly beaten Guyanan after just 58 seconds of the session.
