2000-06-17 Marco Antonio Barrera w co 1 Luiz Claudio Freitas, The Arena, Mexico City, Mexico - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. Although Freitas (122), the 32-year-old brother of Acelino, came out throwing punches as if there was no tomorrow and actually hurt the champion with a solid right to the head, Barrera (122) quickly assessed what he had to do by immediately getting down to work. Backing Freitas up against the ropes, he smashed in battery of big punches before a vicious left hook to the liver led to a count out after just 87 seconds.
