In a big upset, Polanco (114) frustrated Pical (115) as he moved adroitly around the ring to avoid the champion’s lethal left hook and tied him up whenever danger arose. In short, Polanco displayed good skills and technique as he boxed his way to victory, despite being rocked and cut on the right cheek in the last two rounds. The Indonesian Times reported that Polanco twice lost control of himself in the final two rounds.
