2005-09-17 Marco Antonio Barrera w pts 12 Robbie Peden, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC/IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 118-109, 118-108, 118-108. In what was a unification battle, Barrera (130) proved much too good for Peden (130), a former sparring partner, outclassing his limited foe in virtually every category on his way to an easy victory. Heads came together in the fourth, leaving Barrera with a cut left eye, but apart from that Peden had no success at all and his efforts to get into the contest were negated at every turn as the Mexican strolled through the rounds. Deducted a point in the tenth for landing a low blow that nobody but the referee saw, it was only in the 11th and 12th that Barrera fully opened up and although Peden made it to the final bell it was a close run thing.
