2001-04-06 [[Frankie Toledo]] w pts 12 [[Mbulelo Botile]], Texas Station Gambling Hall & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 119-109. Making his first defence after beating [[Paul Ingle]], Botile (125¾) failed to bring his best form into the ring but still seemed to have done enough in some eyes. However, he did not impress the judges who unanimously decided that Toledo (126), backpedalling and countering with the southpaw jab, had won the fight despite Botile making it. Toledo, cut over the right eye in the eighth, always did his best work in the last minute of every round as he stole points off the back foot and stuck to his game plan throughout.
