2004-01-31 [[Rafael Marquez]] w rsc 2 [[Pete Frissina]], Dodge Theatre, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - IBF. Referee: Raul Caiz Jr. Coming out in aggressive fashion, the challenger initially met Marquez (117¾) blow for blow until a four-punch combination followed by a straight right dumped him. Although dazed he made it to his feet before he was sent sprawling again and was saved by the bell. Still intent on fighting his way back into it, Frissina (118) continued to plough forward, but Marquez had his number in every department and picked him off with good jabs prior to driving him back against the ropes. With Frissina in real difficulty, the referee had seen enough and stopped it after just 22 seconds of the second round had elapsed.
