Super bantamweight Roy Tapia won a hard-fought four round unanimous decision over Pablo Batres. Although all three judges scored the bout 40-36, the scores did not reflect the competitiveness of the fight. Although Tapia landed the harder and more effective punches, he would get countered on the inside as Batres did his best work there.

Hovhannisyan suffered a cut on his forehead, due to an accidental headbutt, but did not let it faze him until the final bell. All three judges scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Hovhannisyan.
