1982-11-12 [[Aaron Pryor]] w rsc 14 (15) [[Alexis Arguello]], Orange Bowl, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Attempting to become a world champion in four different weight divisions proved to be too much for Arguello (138½), who was rescued by the referee after 1.06 of the penultimate round despite not being put down. Prior to the finish there had been no knockdowns and it had been closely fought, with two judges showing Pryor (140) to be in front by 127-124 at the start of the 14th and the other judge having Arguello ahead by 127-125. With Pryor somehow being able to withstand Arguello’s best punches, which included vicious rights to head and body and any number of other blows, and come back blasting away proved him to be one of the best the division had seen. Having been severely shaken up by a tremendous right in the 13th, many would not have expected Pryor to be still standing let alone going on the attack in the 14th, but that is what he did and with Arguello tottering under a hail of leather he was wisely pulled out.
