1984-06-12 [[Rocky Lockridge]] w rsc 11 (15) [[Tae-Jin Moon]], Sullivan Arena, Anchorage, Alaska, USA - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Dominating from the opening bell the champion had much success with heavy rights to the head as he subjected the southpaw Moon (129) to more of the same round after round. He also showed a good defence when bobbing and weaving under the blows coming his way. When Moon was able to land, Lockridge (127½) shrugged the blows off almost disconcertingly before getting back on the offensive. By the latter rounds, despite not being dropped, Moon had taken a lot of punishment, and 31 seconds into the 11th with the South Korean backed against the ropes as Lockridge banged away with both hands the referee brought matters to a close.
