2000-05-06 Daniel Santos w co 5 Ahmed Katejev, Swiss Hotel, Neuss, Germany - WBO. Referee: Bill Connors. Having already beaten his southpaw challenger six months earlier, Katejev (147) might have been expecting to repeat the dose, but it had been very close and things didn’t quite work out for him this time round. Making a good start, Santos (147) knew that to beat Katejev he had to press him and that’s what he did, using the jab to find his way in and crossing the left. As before Katejev had difficulty with reaching Santos and already down on two of the cards he was floored twice in the fifth from solid left hands, the second occasion seeing him counted out on the 2.07 mark.
