2003-01-04 [[Luis Alberto Perez]] w pts 12 [[Felix Machado]], The Armory, Washington DC, USA - IBF. Referee: Ken Chevalier. Scorecards: 115-112, 114-113, 110-117. A major upset occurred when Perez (114) came in at just five days notice to defeat the champion in what was a battle of southpaws. From the moment Machado (114) suffered a broken right cheekbone in the first round, an injury which could be explained by the massive swelling, his days as champion were numbered and he was caught repeatedly by the jab throughout. Both men slugged away and there was never much between them, but a point deducted from Machado’s total in the fifth for punching low ultimately proved costly.
