2008-05-24 Paul Malignaggi w pts 12 Lovemore Ndou, City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester, England - IBF. Referee: Mickey Vann. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-113, 114-115.

Malignaggi was stripped of the IBF title in September after signing to meet Ricky Hatton for The Ring championship belt rather than agreeing to make a defence against the number-one challenger, Herman Ngoudjo, and the latter was matched against Juan Urango to find a new champion. Both men had won eliminating bouts to qualify for a title shot, Ngoudjo beating Souleymane M'baye (w pts 12 at the Uniprix Stadium, Montreal, Canada on 6 June 2008) and Urango defeating Carlos Wilfredo Vilches (w co 4 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on 23 April 2008).
