2006-10-14 Joe Calzaghe w pts 12 Sakio Bika, MEN Arena, Manchester, England - IBF/WBO/The Ring. Referee: Mickey Vann. Scorecards: 116-111, 117-110, 117-110.

On 27 November it was reported that Calzaghe had relinquished the IBF version of the title in order to defend his WBO crown against Peter Manfredo rather than face Robert Stieglitz, the IBF’s mandatory challenger. Following that, the latter was matched against Alejandro Berrio for the vacant title. Despite losing to Stieglitz in an earlier contest, Berrio had earned his opportunity when defeating Yusaf Mack (w rsc 6 at the Club Cinema, Pompano Beach, Florida, USA on 19 May 2005) in an eliminator.
