2008-04-12 Antonio Margarito w co 6 Kermit Cintron, Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - IBF. Referee: Earl Brown.

Margarito relinquished the title in May in order to make a match with Miguel Cotto for the latter’s WBA crown. Following that, Joshua Clottey, who had beaten Shamone Alvarez (w pts 12 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada on 20 December 2007) in an eliminator, and Zab Judah were signed up to battle for the vacant crown.
