2003-11-01 [[Juan Manuel Marquez]] w tdec 7 [[Derrick Gainer]], Van Andel Arena, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - IBF/WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 69-64, 70-63, 70-63. Backpedalling from the opening bell, Gainer (126) failed to put in any work whatsoever, while Marquez (125¾) continually stalked him and looked to fire off body shots as and when he could. By the seventh round Gainer was tiring rapidly and the body shots were finally breaking him down when he suddenly reeled away from a clash of heads with a cut over the left eye. Following doctor’s advice the fight went to the cards on the 2.37 mark, and with Gainer having lost every round Marquez unified both titles on the decision.
