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 and was staggered by the first punch of the fight, a right to the head delivered by the champion. Fana appeared at a loss as how to deal with Barrera (130) and was soon retreating at speed. Into the second round and obvious to all that it was just a matter of time before Barrera got the job done, Fana was 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.
