2000-04-07 [[Lehlo Ledwaba]] w rsc 8 [[Ernesto Grey]], Whitchurch Leisure Centre, Bristol, England - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Proving to be an excellent champion, the slick moving Ledwaba (122) was a class above Grey (122), who although showing up well early in the fight was shaken up in the third and fourth rounds by excellent counters. Ledwaba opened up in the fifth to cut Grey over the left eye and drop him following two solid lefts and although the latter made it into the eighth he was knocked down by a short left for ‘four’ and rescued on the 1.20 mark when under heavy pressure and not fighting back.
