1983-09-03 Don Curry w rsc 1 (15) Roger Stafford, Municipal Stadium, Marsala, Italy - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Also supported by the USBA/I, soon to be known as the IBF, the contest lasted just 102 seconds, having been twice postponed due to a hand injury suffered by Curry. Despite stating that he would knock Curry out, the challenger was dropped by the opening blow, a stiff left jab, and although getting up and trying to box his way out of trouble he was soon caught again. Two left hooks followed by a right to the head had Stafford over for the second time and after taking the mandatory ‘eight’ he blazed into Curry wildly before being shot down by a cracking right to the jaw, that left the referee no option other than calling it off under the three knockdown in a round ruling.
