Having chased the champion around the ring in the opening session, Cuevas (146) quickly got down to work in the second and dropped his man early on with a looping left hook. Getting up, carrying a nasty cut over the right eye, Espada (145) looked bewildered and he was quickly put down twice more, whereupon the fight was automatically stopped on the one minute mark under the three knockdowns in one round ruling.
