Gonzalez showed the quicker hand speed, as he was connecting with solid shots on Marriaga in the first round. Marriaga was the busier man in the second. In the third, Gonzalez turned it up in the final minute as he began to put his shots together.

Gonzalez was landing numerous solid shots in the fourth, connecting to the head of Marriaga. Gonzalez continued to unload with both hands in the fifth. The sixth round was more of the same, with Gonzalez unloading on Marriaga to the head and body. Marriaga was game and throwing back, but many of his shots were being blocked.

Marriaga tried to switch things up in the seventh, with Gonzalez still tagging him often with punches. More of the same in the eight, with the referee warning Marriaga to step things up or the end could come. Marriaga was fighting hard in the ninth and created a cut under the right eye of Gonzalez, but he was unable to turn the tide and was still taking shots

Forgot about this fight but glad to see Joet bounce back strong after the Stevenson fight

Only surprise here is how Marriaga went flat. Just like Herring, Ramirez, Frampton etc... It's gotta be the surroundings. The younger fighters seem to adapt to closed venues better? At least it appears that way. Props to Gonzalez he looked…
