2001-11-16 Manuel Medina w rsc 6 Frankie Toledo, Orleans Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Despite winning the opening two rounds, Toledo (126) was soon up against it as Medina (126), bidding to become champion for the fourth time, began to get through more following a clash of heads which left the former with a cut forehead. The fourth session saw Medina up his work rate, landing lots of light blows from both hands before another clash of heads put Toledo on the defensive. In the fifth round Medina again upped the tempo with long rights to the head pushing Toledo back, and although the latter retaliated he was beginning to take a two-fisted beating. Looking demoralised during the interval it came as no surprise when the referee stopped the fight five seconds into the sixth after Toledo elected to give up in the hope of getting a technical draw, which was ultimately not granted.
