2000-06-02 Zolani Petelo w rsc 8 Mickey Cantwell, Stour Leisure Centre, Ashford, Kent, England - IBF. Referee: Dave Parris. Despite making an admirable challenge, Cantwell (104), having been floored in the seventh round, was not hitting back when the referee rescued him after 59 seconds of the eighth had elapsed. Earlier, the hard-punching Petelo (105) could have been faulted for his work-rate, but his shots to the body ultimately paved the way for victory, leaving Cantwell to mull over his future. Petelo relinquished his IBF title in December due to weight-making problems.
