Wenton was twice floored in the third round by ripping left hooks to the body from Mexico's Marco Antonio Barrera. That was to be Wenton's last involvement and he could not answer the bell for round four, leaving the referee Tony Orlando with no alternative but to declare a technical knock-out.
Barrera regained the title he lost last year to Junior Jones and he was quick with a message for Naseem Hamed, lifting up a flap on his trunks to reveal the challenge: "Naz, you're next." Wenton said: "He's not a bad body puncher. I thought I would stand and fight with him because I didn't think he would like that. But I could not weather the storm."Reuse content
