Description : Here we have an original super rare official onsite boxing fight poster for the WBC world welterweight championship title bout. Royal Albert hall, Kensington, London, England, 18th April 1987.

Britain's Lloyd Honeyghan won a unanimous 12-round decision over American Maurice Blotter at the Royal Albert Hall Saturday to retain his World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation welterweight championships.

The victory, in his second title defense, lifted Honeyghan's record to 30-0. But the 26-year-old champion had to work hard to hand Blocker, a native of Washington, D.C., his first career loss in 25 fights.

From the opening bell it was clear that Blocker was going to give Honeyghan far more problems than another American, Johnny Bumphus, did in Honeyghan's first title defense, a two-round knockout on Feb. 22. Blocker proved a durable and skillful opponent, taking Honeyghan's best shots and counter-punching well. But he was cautioned several times by Swiss referee Franz Marti and had a point taken away in the last round for a low blow.

"It was never going to be easy," said Honeyghan afterward. "I needed to work very hard in training to win this fight. ... I know a good fighter when I see one."

After the fight Blocker said: "I feel I won the fight. When I heard them say it was a unanimous decision I was sure. But thank God it's on TV and the American people can see who really won." He said Honeyghan was "a strong puncher and was the aggressor but I took his punches easily and scored more often."

Blocker's trainer, Bob Miles, said: "We had the boxer and they had the fighter. The referee always intervened on behalf of Honeyghan. His corner refereed the fight."
