Having fallen behind to the superior boxing skills of the challenger, Anaya (118) rallied strongly over the last six rounds to just about warrant the split decision. It really was a battle of two halves, with Anaya unable to get to the speedy Lara (117½) before the latter tired and was relentlessly chased down.
