2001-02-17 [[Lehlo Ledwaba]] w rsc 9 [[Arnel Barotillo]], Carnival City Big Top, Brakpan, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Giving an excellent display of controlled boxing, Ledwaba (120¾) countered the challenger’s aggression with good movement and solid punches driven into the body as he handed out a systematic beating. It was not that Barotillo (121¾) was poor it was more about Ledwaba being top class and with the former soaking up punishment it was no surprise when a double left hook sent him crashing to the floor in the ninth. Up after a mandatory ‘eight’ count, Barotillo walked straight in to another barrage of heavy punches before being rescued by the referee on the 1.49 mark.
