Barrera denied

MARCO Antonio Barrera has been denied a rematch with Amir Khan by the WBO despite an early clash of heads before the English fighter won. Barrera's promoter, Don King, had hoped the "tainted" lightweight bout in March at Manchester would be declared a no-contest. But the British Boxing Board of Control cleared the referee yesterday of making a mistake by not stopping the bout in the second minute of the first round when their heads collided. The Mexican received a huge cut on the left side of his head, and the ring doctor later stopped the contest in the fifth round. Had the fight been stopped in the fourth round, it would have been declared a no-contest to automatically force a rematch.
