Having stopped Aceves (134¾) in a non-title bout back in April, Thobela (135), known as ‘The Rose of Soweto’, certainly warranted a crack at the title and he started strongly when flooring the champion with a left-right to the head in the opening session. Although Aceves, concentrating on the body, came back strongly to hurt Thobela with a right-left uppercut to the jaw in the fifth round he was shaken up and cut over the right eye in the tenth when hit by a left hook and ultimately went down on two of the cards.
