2000-01-14 Irene Pacheco w co 11 Pedro Pena, Don Haskins Centre, El Paso, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. In hard, bruising fight, Pacheco (112) prevailed over the one-dimensional Pena (112), who boxed competently but lacked the fire needed to win a title, and by the eighth he was taking a beating. The southpaw champion finally had the bit between the teeth and was not going to let his man off the hook as he swarmed in during the 11th, nailing Pena with a huge right hook that deposited him on the canvas to be counted out at 2.32 of the round.
