1982-03-27 Jeff Chandler w rsc 6 (15) Johnny Carter, Civic Centre, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - WBA. Referee: Frank Cappuccino. In a meeting between two locals, Chandler (117¾) came out on top after Carter (117), who made an impressive start, elected to trade punches with him. By the sixth round, the champion knew he had it in the bag and a heavy left hook put Carter down. Just about making it to his feet before being counted out, the challenger was wobbling about on unsteady legs when another left hook smashed him into the ropes and the referee, having seen enough, brought the action to an end with 32 seconds of the session remaining.
