1996-05-04 Marco Antonio Barrera w co 3 Jesse Benavides, Arrowhead Pond Arena, Anaheim, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. The champion marched straight into Benavides (122) from the opening bell and although the latter, an excellent body puncher himself, matched him here and there during the first two rounds the signs were already ominous. Barrera (122), who had only been warming up, was soon at Benavides in the third and a good left hook followed by a solid body shot saw the man from Texas sink to the canvas in pain to be counted out on the 1.15 mark.
