WEMBLEY, England, Sunday, July 20— Tim Witherspoon, looking fat and out of shape, knocked down Frank Bruno with four crashing rights to the head and stopped the British challenger in the 11th round to retain the World Boxing Association heavyweight championship. Just past the two-minute mark of the 11th round, Bruno landed a three-punch series to the head. Then Witherspoon crashed home an overhand right that sent Bruno reeling into a neutral corner. Bruno escaped, but Witherspoon, seeing the end was near, slammed three more overhand rights that dropped Bruno to a sitting position in Witherspoon's corner. The towel was immediately thrown in from Bruno's corner and Referee Isido Rodriguez of Venezuela saw it and stopped the fight without a count. The time of the finish was 3 minutes of the 11th round, Bruno, who weighed 228 pounds, never showed the vaunted right-hand power that had given him 27 knockouts.

The fight started about 1 A.M. local time to accommodate Home Box Office, which televised the fight in the United States.
