2000-02-12 [[Kostya Tszyu]] w rsc 8 [[Ahmed Santos]], Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - WBC. Referee: Frank Cappuccino. Although failing to win a round on the cards the challenger managed to hold out until the eighth, Tszyu (140) eventually catching up with him. Prior to that, Santos (139) had shown an ability to assimilate any number of right hands and left uppercuts to his head, but it was also clear that Tszyu was merely biding his time. Early in the eighth Santos was finally dropped by a right uppercut, and when he got up and was blasted back down the referee halted proceedings with just 36 seconds on the clock.
