A big underdog, Aquino (154) surprised the champion when taking the fight to him right from the opening bell and shook him further when putting him down in the second round with a big left hook. Although Thomas (154) made it to his feet and fought back bravely, landing some big punches of his own, he was unable to quell the spirited Aquino and even when it looked as though he might be getting on top the latter came back strongly in the eighth. After the ninth was evenly contested, Thomas faded badly in the remaining three sessions, being knocked down by a solid right in the last and finishing with cuts over both eyes to go with badly swollen features.
