2004-07-31 [[Rafael Marquez]] w rsc 3 [[Heriberto Ruiz]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Tony Weeks. With little happening following two rounds of inaction and the crowd preparing themselves for a long drawn out battle of wits, the contest was suddenly over at 2.11 of the third. It came about in the third after the champion missed with a left hook and was countered by a similar punch from Ruiz (118). However, just as that was landing Ruiz was himself nailed by a tremendous right uppercut to the jaw from Marquez (118) that dropped him face down on the canvas. Although it was clearly a kayo the referee did not even bother to count, immediately bringing the contest to a conclusion in order that Ruiz could receive attention.
