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 to send in a heavy right to the head that dropped Santos (147) for ‘seven’. Saved by the bell, Santos came out warily as Sinclair looked for a finish, and with both men landing heavily 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.
