2005-04-23 Antonio Margarito w rsc 5 Kermit Cintron, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Having knocked out 22 of 24 opponents, the ‘interim’ titleholder, Cintron (146½), was seen as the division’s biggest puncher and in the opening two rounds he went looking for Margarito (147) at every opportunity. Unfortunately for Cintron the champion took his best shots before hurting him in the third and opening up a cut over his right eye. Dropped by a right to the head in the fourth, although Cintron got up he was soon put down again before Margarito went for the jugular in the fifth. On the deck for the third time from another hard right to the head, Cintron was then blasted from both hands before being floored for the fourth time by a terrific right to the body, whereupon the referee called off the contest on the 2.12 mark.
