Dubois looked to establish his jab early, landing 28 through the first three rounds. Hrgovic only landed 12 jabs over the first three

rounds, but he landed 44 power punches on Dubois. Though he was landing the heavy punches, Hrgovic suffered cuts over both eyes and seemed to be the more exhausted of the two. The seventh round was big for Dubois. He landed 22 power punches while a clearly exhausted Hrgovic only managed to throw 14 total punches. After consulting with the doctor in the eighth round, the referee halted the bout on cuts.
