4 October Rafael Marquez w pts 12 Mauricio Pastrana, Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Jon Schorle. Scorecards: 118-110, 118-110, 117-111. Much too fast for Pastrana (116½), the compact little Marquez (117) kept on top of his rival who mainly stayed on the outside in order to keep out of harms way. Sent stumbling in the seventh, Pastrana took more heavy blows from the champion in the eighth before giving it all he had in the last two sessions, only to be repeatedly hurt by body shots.
