1982-03-21 [[Aaron Pryor]] w rsc 12 (15) [[Miguel Montilla]], Playboy Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Forced to travel more than ten rounds for the first time in his career, the champion eventually managed to subdue the tough Montilla (139) after 42 seconds of the 12th when the referee came to the latter’s rescue. Prior to that, Pryor (139¾) had been unable to drop Montilla, who was cut over both eyes at the finish, despite racking him with solid punches from both hands and driving him back for long periods. At times it had been nothing more than a punch up as Montilla stood right in front of Pryor throwing looping left hooks and right handers, but unable to take him out of the fight despite hurting him at times, it was the Dominican who ultimately gave way.
