Avalos started well and swept the first three rounds. Vicente was getting more active with his punches in the fourth round. In the fifth round, Avalos dropped him hard with a counter left hook. Vicente got up on very unsteady legs. He was taking punishment but still throwing back with both hands to reach the bell. Vicente, who was nearly gone in the fifth, actually survived and fought well down the stetch, although Avalos had the edge in most of the rounds. Tags: Chris Avalos , Darley Perez
