2000-12-16 Daniel Santos w co 2 Neil Sinclair, The Arena, Sheffield, England - WBO. Referee: John Coyle. Working everything around his southpaw left hand, mixing up uppercuts and crosses, the champion soon got down to business to send Sinclair (146) down with a left cross. Up at ‘two’, but forced to take the mandatory ‘eight’ count, Sinclair allowed time for his head to clear before spotting an opening and sending in a heavy right to the head that dropped Santos (147) for ‘seven’. Saved by the bell, Santos came out warily as Sinclair looked to go with him and both men landed heavily, but it was the latter who came off worse when a short left to the head sent him down to be counted out with 35 seconds of the session remaining.
