1977-03-20 : Ron Lyle 218 lbs beat Joe Bugner 229¾ lbs by SD in round 12 of 12

In a televised twelve rounder between two top ten contenders, veteran Ron Lyle battled British and European Heavyweight Champion Joe Bugner in a boring, drawish fight. It was a highly defensive matchup. Lyle and Bugner fought cautiously, with Lyle perhaps being abit more aggressive. No heads turned in the division in a twelve round split decision which could virtually have gone either way, and did not affect the heavyweight rankings in any way.
