Making a great start, Renard (126) went clear with good left jabs and hooks that penetrated the champion’s guard, but by the end of the fifth round it was clear that Esparragoza (125½), having begun to counter heavily, was boxing well within himself. Changing tactics in the sixth, Esparragoza upped the pace when switching from head to body with two-fisted combinations, before a sharp short left sent Renard down to be counted out with 40 seconds of the round remaining.
