2001-08-11 Julio Pablo Chacon w rsc 5 Eduardo Barrios, Falklands Argentinian Stadium, Mendoza, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Starting with a bang, Chacon (126) dropped Barrios (126) in the first round with a right-left hook and biding his time he went on to outbox and outpunch the erratic challenger for the next three sessions before really opening up again. Floored by a big right to the head in the fifth, Barrios somehow got up but was defenceless against the ropes when Chacon, throwing combinations, smashed him down again. At this juncture, the referee called a halt immediately with just ten seconds of the round remaining.
