2004-05-05 [[Manny Siaca]] w pts 12 [[Anthony Mundine]], Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - WBA. Referee: Raul Caiz Jr. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 113-114. Making his first title defence since taking over from [[Sven Ottke]], Mundine (167¼) made a bad start when dropped in the second round by a left hook to the jaw and although he was up at ‘four’ and survived he did little to show himself as championship material during the rest of the contest. Having entered the ring after turning an ankle a week earlier, Mundine was on the back foot from there on in as Siaca (167½) went after him and in the tenth he twice went to the floor due to his injury. Occasionally, Mundine landed good combinations, but Siaca took them well and was always the master of the situation.
