2003-12-13 Wayne Braithwaite w co 1 Luis Andres Pineda, Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Eddie Cotton. Starting out as he meant to win the title in a hurry Pineda (199) began unloading heavy blows from either hand before being badly hurt by a big left as Braithwaite (189) momentarily switched to southpaw. Following that success Braithwaite sent Pineda crashing from a right to the head, and although the latter was almost up at ‘six’ he fell back down and was counted out.
