1996-09-14 Marco Antonio Barrera w rsc 10 Jesse Magana, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Robert Byrd. Not frightened of reputations the brave but limited southpaw challenger tried to trade Barrera (122) punch for punch, but was clinically broken down by jabs, hooks, uppercuts and straight rights that gradually took him apart. Knocked down in the seventh, Magana (122) went down again in the eighth from the delayed reaction of being caught by a heavy one-two. Then, after struggling through to the tenth, he was floored by solid combination punches before being immediately rescued by the referee at 1.56 of the round.
