24 June Orlando Canizales w rsc 11 Kelvin Seabrooks, Harrah’s Marino Casino Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - IBF. Referee: Steve Smoger. Confirming his superiority over Seabrooks (116½), the sharp-punching Canizales (118) outboxed and outpunched his rival round after round to eventually force a stoppage at 47 seconds of the 11th when Seabrooks turned away. Despite being on the receiving end throughout, the game challenger always threw enough punches to warrant him not being pulled out up to that point, but unable to see out of his right eye the stoppage was well timed. Canizales also received damage to his right eye.
