1983-03-18 : Dwight Muhammad Qawi 174 lbs lost to Michael Spinks 173 lbs by UD in round 15 of 15


- Spinks takes Qawi's WBC belt and unifies the Light Heavyweight title just two months after the tragic death of his girlfriend in an automobile accident.
- Spinks was down for the first time in his career, in the 8th round; however, there was much debate as to whether Spinks actually went down from a punch or tripped over Qawi's feet as he was hit.
