At the time of the stoppage, Jones had taken over the fight. Margarito was fading quickly and taking a lot of punishment. He appeared to be spent by the end of the seventh.

When the fight was waved off, it was initially thought by everyone that Jones had secured a TKO victory.

But then the referee advised everyone that Margarito was having issues with his right eye, which was cut and bleeding from what the referee ruled was a clash of heads in the second round, so they went to the scorecards.

The scores were 67-65, 68-64 and 67-65. The announcers in Mexico had a 66-66 draw at the time of the stoppage and had Jones winning the last three rounds of the fight.

While fight began with a bang, with both boxers trading big shots at close range - Margarito began to fade as the contest entered the midway point. He was hurt several times in the seventh round and Jones appeared to be on the verge of securing a knockout victory.

Since being exposed for the hand wraps saga, Margarito's record reads 4 wins and 3 losses, and wins by decision only against limited fighters. He was getting dominated by Jones and looked like s*** although I gave him 3 rounds.…
