1995-04-29 Mbulelo Botile w rsc 2 Harold Mestre, FNB Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Getting off to a good start, Botile (117¼) shocked Mestre (117¾) with a terrific barrage of lefts and rights in the opening round. Beginning the second where he left off, after being warned for a low blow the champion was sent sprawling from a left-right combination. Although making it to his feet, Mestre was rescued by the referee at 1.24 as he stumbled around the ring with no defence in place.
