1981-10-03 [[Marvin Hagler]] w rsc 11 (15) [[Mustafa Hamsh]], Horizon Arena, Rosemont, Illinois, USA - WORLD. Referee: Octavio Meyran. In a battle between southpaws, right from the start Hamsho (160) waded into the champion throwing in wide arcing punches, only to be met by solid right counters that sent him back on his heels. Then, in the third round, Hamsho was cut over the right eye before a clash of heads saw Hagler (157) also cut on the right eye. By the fifth Hagler was beginning to batter Hamsho, now cut over the left eye, slamming in jabs and uppercuts and beating him to the punch again and again. Surprisingly, Hamsho’s cuts were under control by the seventh, but he was being outpunched despite picking up the attack, and in the 11th he was sent crashing to the floor following a savage burst of punching, the fight being stopped on 2.09 mark.
