PTS10/10
Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Yarosz easily outpointed Black, but he spent most of the night countering and it wasn't exciting. Black missed most of his attempts to land. He was staggered by rights to the jaw in the eighth, Yarosz's best round.

TKO3/10
Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Black was down four times, twice in the second and twice in the third before the referee stopped the fight. Krieger's bobbing-weaving style puzzled him and he couldn't get going until the third round when he landed a fusillade of hard blows, only to be dropped by a left hook which started him on the way out.
