2000-09-09 [[Marco Antonio Barrera]] w pts 12 [[Jose Luis Valbuena]], The Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WBO. Referee: Elmer Adolph. Scorecards: 115-113, 117-111, 116-112. 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, having to settle for a relatively close points win. An erratic southpaw, Valbuena (120½) certainly made a difficult target, but aided by the inability of Barrera to catch up with him until near the end he 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.
