2001-12-01 Sven Ottke w co 10 Anthony Mundine, Westphalia Hall, Dortmund, Germany - IBF. Referee: Wayne Kelly. Working well from the outside Mundine (166½) set the champion several problems for a few rounds, even having his man over in the eighth although the count was never picked up. In the ninth, however, Ottke (167), beginning to put his punches together better, had to weather a bit of a storm as Mundine looked for an early finish. Initially, the tenth session saw Mundine having an edge and scoring well with fast lefts, but after a couple of body shots had lowered his guard Ottke hammered home a tremendous right hook to the jaw that sent him down to be counted out on the 2.40 mark. At the time of the finish Ottke was ahead on all three cards by a reasonable margin, which would have been a lot closer had Mundine not been deducted two points in the fourth for intentional butts.
