1992-01-10 Iran Barkley w rsc 2 Darrin Van Horn, MSG Theatre, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Arthur Mercante Jr. Right from the opening bell Barkley (168) went after the champion, nearly having him over with a left hook as the two men went toe to toe in the opening round. With there being no let up in the second 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.
