1993-09-29 Leeonzer Barber w pts 12 Andrea Magi, Ice Palace, Pesaro, Italy - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Scorecards: 116-113, 115-114, 115-113. Aggressive from the opening bell and fighting in front of his home fans, the tough challenger gave Barber (174½) plenty of problems before going down on points. Prior to this contest Magi (174¼) was unbeaten in 16 bouts, but this was a real step up in class for him. Never able to relax, Barber was at his best in the middle sessions, his left jab backed up by accurate combinations gaining him the win.
