Undefeated WBC Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes defends his title against undefeated challenger Ossie Ocasio in an all-time great performance. Ocasio gets in some good punches in the second round, but Holmes stuns him with power shots in the fourth. Holmes then uncharacteristically begins shouting at Ocasio while teeing off on him in the fifth. In the seventh round, Holmes has Ocasio in trouble before absolutely flooring him with a jab. Ocasio beats the count, but Holmes sends him back down twice more with some huge straight right hands. Showing incredible heart, Ocasio beats the count a third time before Holmes drops him with a left hook. As Ocasio rolls over face down on the canvas, Referee Carlos Padilla finally stops the massacre.
