Using an excellent right jab, the champion peppered Torres (107½) throughout with lightening fast jabs to the head that had the Mexican bleeding over both eyes by the finish. Displaying good skills when having to fight back on occasion, Zapata (108) was in control much of the time before being troubled in the last round after taking two hard rights to the jaw. However, showing the ability to absorb his rival’s much vaunted power he weathered the storm to romp home a clear winner.
