2000-03-18 Acelino Freitas w co 1 Javier Jauregui, Creditcard Hall, Sao Paulo, Brazil - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Making his third defence and with a record of 24 straight wins, all inside the distance, Freitas (130) was expected to win by the locals and he did not disappoint them. It was soon clear that Freitas could hurt Jauregui (129¾), having caught him with a cracking left hook not long after the opening bell, and after forcing his rival to the ropes with the jab another tremendous left hook sent the latter down to be counted out on the 1.25 mark.
