14 August Orlando Canizales w rsc 5 Eddie Rangel, City Centre Arena, Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Joe Santarpia. Meeting head on at the opening bell the two men went to war and Rangel (118), who was cut over the left eye in the initial dramatic exchanges, was lucky to survive. The next couple of sessions saw the challenger trying to protect his damaged eye, but following more activity in the fourth Canizales (118) cut loose again in the fifth to explode a left uppercut on Rangel, who went down clutching his eye. It was obvious that Rangel was unhappy to continue and on getting to his feet the referee called it off on the 30-second mark.
