2005-12-10 Arthur Abraham w rsc 5 Kingsley Ikeke, The Arena, Leipzig, Germany - IBF. Referee: Samuel Viruet. Contesting the vacant title Abraham (159) proved too good for Ikeke (159), starting faster and getting his punches off better, especially the right over the top followed by a left hook. Although the taller Ikeke tried hard enough he could not get going. In the fifth Ikeke was caught by a heavy right-left-right combination that saw him eventually stumbling to the floor after the referee had waived it over with 84 seconds of the session remaining.
