1996-04-02 [[Mbulelo Botile]] w co 11 [[Ancee Gedeon]], Civic Centre, Providence, Rhode Island, USA - IBF. Referee: Harold Gomes. Having a seven-inch reach advantage obviously helped Botile (118) with the jab, but once Gedeon (117¼) had been cut over the left eye following a clash of heads in the third round his attacking prowess, mainly inside, became more sporadic. By the ninth, the brawling challenger was being backed up from Botile’s heavy crosses and in the tenth he was twice put down from left-rights to the head, before capsizing under the weight of more heavy punches to be counted out 35 seconds into the 11th session.
