Marco Antonio Barrera 141 lbs beat Adailton De Jesus 138 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

Mexico's Barrera. 37, won a unanimous decision at the junior welterweight limit over opponent De Jesus of Brazil, with Barrera relying on his left jab the whole way to win nearly every round on points. Barrera stated he was making a final run for a title at lightweight or junior welterweight but lacked the power of years past. His hand speed and legs were fine, though, and he came forward all night and 'got a good workout', landing shots to the face of De Jesus whenever he found an opening in the Brazilian's defense. De Jesus, for his part, had a fair defense, was in shape and tried hard. He threw a lot of wild shots, none of which landed, however a few counter jabs got through on occasion. De Jesus eyes were swollen at the end, while Barrera was unmarked after 10 rounds! De Jesus had his best round in the fourth, when he landed several left hooks, and perhaps won the round. Barrera briefly had a bloody nose in round 8. Last two rounds were quiet. Scoring: 100-90, 99-91, 98-92 Barrera, 66-7 (43). De Jesus 26-5 (21).
