2000-06-10 Acelino Freitas w rsc 2 Lemuel Nelson, Fox Theatre, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBO. Referee: Dale Grable. Despite having problems making the weight, Freitas (130) was soon into action and Nelson (130) was badly wobbled several times before throwing a right hand that put the champion down. As soon as Freitas was back on his feet Nelson was in trouble again from the right hand and in the second round there was again no respite for the American as Freitas continued to bomb in heavy rights. It obviously could not last much longer and after Freitas had sent his man staggering along the ropes and was smashing in punches freely, the referee had seen enough and rescued Nelson just before he hit the canvas with one second of the round remaining.
