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. At his best in the middle sessions, Barber's left jab backed up by accurate combinations gaining him the win.
