1998-03-21 Zolani Petelo w pts 12 Faisol Akbar, Carousel Casino Resort, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 118-110, 113-115, 115-113. Boxing intelligently, Petelo (104¾) got behind the southpaw jab to keep the bustling Akbar (104) at distance and, in doing so, scored the lions’ share of the points, or so it was thought. After the Indonesian challenger failed to make a dent, two of the judges’ scorecards were seen a joke, with one of them even having Akbar ahead.
