2004-12-11 [[Miguel Cotto]] w rsc 6 [[Randall Bailey]], Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Norm Budden. Although Bailey (139½) went into the fight full of purpose, by the end of the third round it had virtually been knocked out of him after heavy punches to head and body had seen him floored twice, in the second and third, and cut over the left eye. Following this, the former champion backed off during the next two sessions before Cotto (140) eventually moved up a gear in the sixth to batter him all round the ring with solid blows from both hands and cut his right eye, an injury that forced the referee to call it off on the 1.39 mark.
