2005-04-05 Muhammad Rachman tdraw 3 Fahlan Sakkreerin, Amusement Park, Merauke City, Papua, Indonesia - IBF. Referee: John Wright. Following limited action in the opening session, Rachman (103½) opened up on Sakkreerin (105) in the second before heads came together in the third and left him with a bad cut on the right side of the temple. Having called an immediate halt on the 1.00 mark the fight was stopped on the advice of the doctor and Rachman had retained his title. Although offered a rematch, the 34-year-old Sakkreerin, who had held the title from 1990 to 1992, failed to take advantage of the opportunity and retired. Sakkreerin had previously fought under the name of Fahlan Lukmingkwan.
