January 29th, 1976.
"...has not fought since last March." Hawk's opponent, Rudy Barro, was the guy that gave him his only defeat up to that date (manager duo's choice, probably); Barro had knocked Hawk out in the second round, two years earlier. Eventually, Hawk won his comeback match by unanimous decision, after ten rounds.
