1983-04-02 Aaron Pryor w rsc 3 (15) Sang-Hyun Kim, Sands Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Although struggling to make the weight, the champion immediately went after Kim (138¾), knocking him from one side of the ring to the other, and it was more of the same in the second round with the latter seemingly unable to fight back other than with wild swings. Having been cut over the right eye by a butt in the second, Pryor (140) was now determined to end matters as he tore into Kim at the start of the third, banging in solid rights and lefts, and with the latter not responding the referee was left with no alternative to call it off after just 37 seconds. Towards the end of April, the United States Boxing Association voted to form an international string to its bow, known as USBA/I, and announced that they supported Pryor as the champion.
