Fighting out of Miami, the new champion got off to quick start to put Vazquez (117¾) down with a left hook in the second round, only to be dropped himself in the third following a similar punch. However, with height and reach advantages Lora (118) began to regain control, opening up cuts under both of Vazquez’s eyes in the tenth. Still Vazquez would not be denied, closing Lora’s right eye in the 11th. The final session was a war, but it was the champion’s better work that got the reward.
