2000-10-06 Lehlo Ledwaba w co 8 Eduardo Enrique Alvarez, Leisure Centre, Maidstone, England - IBF. Referee: Roy Francis. Boxing smartly on the back foot the challenger made life difficult for Ledwaba (121½), who was forced to look for openings, but in the seventh the South African upped the pace after realising out how to best deal with Alvarez (121¼). Ledwaba was now in full swing and in the eighth he forced his rival into a corner where a right-left-right to the head and a terrific left hook to the ribs dropped Alvarez to be counted out with two seconds of the round remaining.
