1992-01-10 Iran Barkley w rsc 2 Darrin Van Horn, MSG Theatre, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Arthur Mercante (jnr). Right from the opening bell, Barkley (168) went after the champion and nearly had him over with a left hook as the two men went toe-to-toe in the opening round. There was no let up in the second and Van Horn (167) was soon down after taking another cracking left hook. Back on his feet at ‘six’, Van Horn was knocked down again, a left uppercut-short right to the jaw doing the damage, and after taking another battering before dropping to the floor in a groggy state the referee stopped the contest with 1.27 of the session remaining.
