1991-09-06 James Warring w co 1 James Pritchard, Municipal Stadium, San Giacomo Salemi, Italy - IBF. Referee: Joey Curtis. In a contest to decide a new champion after Jeff Lampkin had sent his belt back, Warring (186¼) knocked out Pritchard (189¾) after just 36 seconds following a cracking right to the jaw. With only 12 fights behind him the part-time actor and former kick-boxer caught his man cold without having taken a punch. Fought in the open air, Warring looked a good bet to stir up a weight class that was considerably weakened by the loss of Evander Holyfield. Some reports gave the time of the finish as being 24 seconds.
