2000-08-12 [[Joe Calzaghe]] w rsc 5 [[Omar Sheika]], Conference Centre, Wembley, London, England - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. Following three disappointing title defences, Calzaghe (168) finally got his act together when taking Sheika (167) apart and battering him to defeat at 2.08 of the fifth. Calzaghe had started confidently and soon had the southpaw jab in and out of Sheika’s face as the latter looked to work the body. Cut over the left eye towards the end of the fourth, Sheika came out fast for the fifth, but within moments he was also cut on the other eye and with Calzaghe punching him without response and the blood flowing, the referee decided that he had seen enough.
