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 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.
