After defeating Prince Naseem Hamed for recognition as the best featherweight in the world, Marco Antonio Barrera looks toward a rematch with Erik Morales to avenge his controversial defeat from 2000. He takes a tuneup against Enrique Sanchez and dominates, hurting his opponent in the second round and putting him on his backside with a counter straight right hand in the third. Barrera scores a second knockdown in the fourth when Sanchez takes a knee on a delayed reaction after absorbing a left hook. After two more rounds of punishment, Sanchez's corner throws in the towel.
