2002-12-14 [[Joe Calzaghe]] w rsc 2 [[Tocker Pudwill]], Telewest Arena, Newcastle, England - WBO. Referee: Dave Parris. Despite the American, who came in at short notice, lasting 12 rounds with the IBF champion, [[Sven Ottke]], this was a mismatch. Dumped three times by the southpaw champion in the opener and his right eye a mess, Pudwill (167½) came out for the second round only to be stopped with 39 seconds on the clock when he was rescued by the referee, having been floored with a body punch. Angry at not being able to meet [[Thomas Tate]], who pulled out earlier with a burst eardrum, Calzaghe (167¼) took his frustration out on the limited Pudwill.
