2009-08-22 Robert Guerrero w pts 12 Malcolm Klassen, Toyota Centre, Houston, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Jon Schorle. Scorecards: 117-111, 116-113, 116-112.

After Guerrero vacated the title in February 2010 in order to care for his wife who was battling leukaemia, the IBF matched Mzonke Fana and Cassius Baloyi to find a new champion. Both men had come through eliminating contests, Fana beating Jasper Seroka (w rsc 6 at the Nasrec Indoor Arena, Johannesburg, South Africa on 31 July 2009) and Baloyi defeating Roberto David Arrieta (w pts 12 at the Wembley Indoor Arena, Johannesburg on 30 October 2009).
