2001-06-16 Felix Machado w pts 12 Mauricio Pastrana, Cintas Centre, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - IBF. Referee: James Villers. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-112, 117-111. Making full use of a three-inch reach advantage, the back-pedalling Machado (115) picked up points with the southpaw jab, albeit exhibiting a lack of power. To his credit Pastrana (113) showed great conviction, but despite cutting Machado over the right eye in the eighth he was unable to break down the champion’s defences.
