Orozco pulled out a very close decision in the back and forth fight. The bout was telecast live over the TruTV Network and co- promoted by Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and Golden Boy Promotions.

Both fighters came out guns a blazing at the opening bell landing heavy shots to the body and head of each other. Orozco's strategy was clear as he tried to weaken Taylor with a heavy body assault but Taylor fired back with sharp counters to the head and body of Orozco.

The action continued this way over the next few rounds but in round 5 Taylor started to dictate the action firing shots off of his jab and for the first time backing Orozco up. Taylor did heavy damage to Orozco's face in rounds 8 and 9 causing his right eye to swell and start to close. The fight was too close to call as the bell sounded for round 10 with little to separate these two warriors. The crowd rose to their feet in appreciation as the final bell rang with the fight seemingly in the balance.

In the end it was Orozco, who improves to 22-0 15KO's, by scores of 96-94 on two cards and 98-92 on the third card. Taylor drops to 18-4 12KO's but can hang his head high as he once again fought valiantly in defeat.
