1999-09-25 [[Lehlo Ledwaba]] w rsc 5 [[Edison Valencia Diaz]], Pachenga Entertainment Centre, Temecula, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Gwen Adair. Defending his title with a lady referee in charge, Ledwaba (121¾) proved far too good for Valencia (120¾), his left jab more often than not finding the target to set his rival up for heavy-handed hooks and uppercuts. Valencia (120¾), cut on the left eye in the fourth, was game but limited and it was no surprise when he was dropped for ‘six’ in the fifth following a superb left-right. He was then overwhelmed as Ledwaba poured in all manner of punches before the referee came to his rescue on the 2.31 mark.
