Jacobs landed several hard punches in the seventh, but there still wasn't a lot being landed by either man. Rosado had the edge in the eight, with more of the landed shots.
Rosado continued to rally in the ninth, as he was countering well when Jacobs would come forward with shots. Jacobs edged a close tenth with the better punches. Rosado seemed to have a better eleventh, which was also close. The twelfth was also close, with Jacobs seeming to shave it with a few punches.
