Putting on his best performance for some time, the champion was soon threading in the jabs to head and body, with Krajnc (166½) having great difficulty in keeping up with his speed. Although Krajnc was having little joy, being outboxed round after round, he gave it a real go over the final three sessions but despite a valiant effort it bore no fruit. Ottke announced his retirement from boxing immediately following the contest and, while the IBF title remained vacant, Anthony Mundine took over full recognition as the WBA champion.
