2002-08-09 Miguel Barrera w pts 12 Roberto Leyva, Orleans Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 116-112. Over 12-action-packed rounds, Barrera (104½) and Leyva (104½) served up one of the fights of the year following their technical draw the previous September. The Colombian challenger certainly came to make a fight of it and although Leyva did not back off the frenetic pace saw him outworked at times and he finished with both eyes almost closed.
