2010-02-06 Edwin Valero w rtd 10 Antonio DeMarco, The Arena, Monterrey, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. With the damage to his scalp requiring time to properly heal and having to spend some time in a psychiatric hospital, Valero was given the title of ‘champion in recess’ to allow a contest between Humberto Soto and David Diaz to go ahead for the title.

Valero took his own life on 19 April, having murdered his wife a day earlier.
