  • The crowd booed repeatedly at what it felt was a reluctant, lackluster effort between two long-time friends.
  • The fight was for the Interim title, after the reigning champion, Vitali Klitschko, was forced to cancel his defense against Rahman due to a knee injury suffered during training.
  • Rahman was elevated to full champion when Klitschko announced his retirement on November 9th, 2005
