2001-04-29 Roberto Leyva w pts 12 Daniel Reyes, Jamaica Amazura Ballroom, NYC, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Wayne Kelly. Scorecards: 114-113, 115-112, 115-112. In a battle for the vacant title following Zolani Petelo’s abdication, Leyva (104½), a slow starter, came through in the second half of an action-packed affair to take a worthy points decision, having floored Reyes (104½) in the ninth for the only knockdown of the contest. Reyes, to his credit, had attacked non-stop in the early stages and was out in front before being dropped, but from then on he was always second best.
