All Canadian title fights are 10 rounds but this was for the WBA international title so minimum 12 rounds...protecting their fighter is all that happened...
This specific belt has been fought for at both 10 and 12 rounds so you can't judge off of that.
It's either in the contract as 10 or 12. I would be interested in seeing pre fight press conference clips, media releses etc by SBW's promoters.
Botha repeatedly double punching the sides of SBW's head because the ref wouldn't stop the holding was classic.
