2005-02-23 Robbie Peden w rsc 8 Nate Campbell, Vodafone Arena, Melbourne, Australia - IBF. Referee: John Wright. Contested for the vacant title, Campbell (129½) made a good start with his superior speed of both hand and foot allowing him to reach Peden (130) with solid rights to the head. Unfortunately for Cambell, he was badly cut over the right eye following a clash of heads towards the end of the fourth and began to lose his composure as Peden started to score more with solid jabs and body shots. The sixth saw Cambell deducted a point for a head butt and after being battered from thereon without let up and cut over both eyes the referee called a halt with just seven seconds of the eighth round remaining.
