In an effort to improve on their first contest Rubaldino (118) made a good start and was always looking for the punch that would end the fight prior to Lujan (117¾) beginning to come back in the middle rounds to close the gap. By the 11th Lujan was back in control, his sharp punches causing much concern to the rapidly tiring challenger, and after taking heavy punishment over the next three sessions Rubaldino was counted out with just 13 seconds of the contest remaining following a cracking right to the head that had left him flat on the deck.
