On what was obviously an off night, apart from the first two and the last two rounds, Barrera (120½) found the fast-moving challenger too difficult to catch and had to settle for a relatively close points win. An erratic southpaw, Valbuena (120½) certainly made a difficult target, but was aided by the inability of Barrera to catch up with him until near the end and was even cocky at times. But running around the ring at high speed does not win boxing matches and the authoritative punches, what there were of them, came from Barrera.
