Australian-based South African heavyweight Pieter Cronjie (10-4-1, 6 KOs) stopped Colin Wilson (35-26-1, 21 KOs) at the Mansfield Tavern, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Wilson suffered a knee injury and the referee called it off at 1:29 of round four. Cronjie previously defeated Wilson via six round points decision in 2007. Cronjie is now scheduled to meet Alex Leapai (20-3-3, 16 KOs) in a rematch on December 4 at the Gold Coast Convention Center, Broadbeach, Queensland.
Leapia, who outscored Cronjie in the best Australian fight for 2008, recently defeated American heavyweights Travis Walker in four rounds and former world heavyweight challenger Owen Beck in six rounds.
Cronjie is now training at Sam Davidson at his Perth gym and is managed by Daniel Davidson.
