1994-10-08 Henry Maske w rtd 9 Iran Barkley, Gerry Weber Stadium, Halle, Germany - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Leading with fast southpaw jabs that were backed up by solid lefts and rights, the champion simply had too much skill for Barkley (171½), who continued to barge his way forward even after both of his eyes began to swell in the fifth. Always moving well, Maske (174¼) made a difficult target and although Barkley was taking a beating, his bottom lip badly damaged adding to his woes, he kept up the attack. By the ninth Barkley’s time was limited and at the end of the session he was retired by his corner when it was becoming clear that the doctor was not going to allow him to continue.
