2000-12-16 Joe Calzaghe w rsc 10 Richie Woodhall, The Arena, Sheffield, England - WBO. Referee: Roy Francis. Making his seventh title defence, Calzaghe (167¾) proved too strong and durable for Woodhall (167½), winning five of the first eight rounds before opening up in the ninth and forcing a stoppage after 28 seconds of the tenth. Prior to the finish, Woodhall had boxed well, shooting in good lefts and straight rights, but was being outworked and immediately prior the end of the ninth, with his right eye swelling badly, he was put down from southpaw lead right and lefts for a count of ‘four’. At the start of the tenth Woodhall had nowhere to go and after Calzaghe picked it up where he left off in the ninth, slamming in rights and lefts, the referee had seen enough.
