1999-08-07 [[Marco Antonio Barrera]] w pts 12 [[Pastor Maurin]], Trump Taj Mahal, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Benjy Esteves Jr. Scorecards: 120-108, 119-109, 119-109. It was clear from the start that the challenger had no intention of mixing it with Barrera (122) as he constantly stayed out of range, switching and holding in order to make sure he went the distance. While there was no doubting Barrera’s win, he was predictably cut over the right eye in the fourth from a butt and was unable to damage Maurin (122), having strangely left his terrific body assaults and heavy hitting at home.
