Mr. Sestic is the second Australian to win the event, and the first since Paul Bassett in 2003. The win marks the end of a remarkable journey for Sasa Sestic, a first-time Australian champ who made his first-ever WBC Semi-Finals and Finals appearances here in Seattle before winning the whole thing.
