2002-03-09 [[Paul Spadafora]] w pts 12 [[Angel Manfredy]], Duquesne University Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - IBF. Referee: Ernie Sharif. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 115-113. As predictably as night follows day, Spadafora (135) stuck out the southpaw jab throughout and as much as the challenger tried he could not fathom out the best way of dealing with it. Apart from two or three sessions, Spadafora was in command all the way as he occasionally unleashed combinations and then ran, while Manfredy (134½) was only aggressive in spurts and failed to cut the ring down. The final 20 seconds of the fight ended with Spadafora turning his back on Manfredy and jogging around the ring with the latter in pursuit to no avail.
