2010-11-13 Manny Pacquiao w pts 12 Antonio Margarito, Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: 119-109, 120-108, 118-110. Contested for the vacant title after Vernon Forrest had been stripped and his successor, Sergio Martinez, who had been handed the belt, decided to move up a division without making a defence.

With no ambitions to defend the WBC belt, Pacquiao was stripped on 8 February and a ready-made fight between Saul Alvarez and the European welterweight champion, Matthew Hatton, was given title status despite the latter not being rated.
