2005-08-12 Jorge Barrios w rsc 2 Victor Santiago, Orfeo Superdome, Cordoba, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz. Making his first defence since being appointed champion, Barrios (129¾) hardly hung about and after showing his intent in the opening round he got down to work quickly in the second to floor Santiago (129¾) three times before the fight was called off on the 2.34 mark. A rough and ready fighter, although Barrios appeared crude at times the hapless Puerto Rican was no match for his hard-hitting foe in front of 15,000 wildly cheering spectators.
