2005-04-09 [[Marco Antonio Barrera]] w rsc 2 [[Mzonke Fana]], Don Haskins Centre, El Paso, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Badly overmatched the unfortunate Fana (128¾) was soon in trouble, being staggered by the first punch of the fight, a right to the head delivered by the champion. Fana, who appeared at a loss as how to deal with Barrera (130), was soon retreating at speed. Into the second round it was obvious to all that it would be just a matter of time before Barrera got the job done, Fana eventually being dropped by a vicious right hand to the jaw which sent him crashing. Not even bothering to count, the referee called an immediate halt, the finish being timed at 1.48.
