1984-09-01 Harry Arroyo w rsc 8 (15) Charlie White Lightning Brown, The Fieldhouse, Youngstown, Ohio, USA - IBF. Referee: Larry Hazzard. After five rounds it looked as though there might be a new champion, as Brown (135) had forced the action up to that point with two-handed assaults making it difficult for Arroyo (135) to get into the fight. Having worked Brown out by the sixth, Arroyo began to counter heavily through to the seventh. Coming out strongly in the eighth, Arroyo hurt Brown with a solid right that drove him to the ropes where he was rescued by the referee 41 seconds into the session when not fighting back.
