2000-07-22 [[Felix Machado]] w pts 12 [[Julio Gamboa]], American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 120-108, 119-109, 119-109. In a return match to decide the vacant title, Machado (115) made no mistake this time round. Using a stinging right jab and follow-up lefts to keep the heavier-punching Gamboa (115), cut on the right cheek and scalp, at distance, his cleaner work certainly impressed the judges. Although Gamboa realised the fight was running away from him and tried to rectify matters in the second half of the contest, Machado continued to control the action and was excellent value for his near shut-out win.
