1995-07-15 Marco Antonio Barrera w co 1 Maui Diaz, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. In annihilating his tough challenger, Barrera (121½) again proved what an excellent fighter he had become. A good boxer, Diaz (122) was soon under pressure from long lefts and rights to the body before a left to the head and body saw him staggering away in pain. Showing no apparent urgency, Barrera fired in more long lefts and rights to the body followed by a cracking short right to the head and Diaz was down. Although he got up it was clear he was finished and he crumpled over without a punch being landed to be counted out with ten seconds of the first round still remaining.
