Even for the first seven rounds, the champion picked up the pace in the eighth, hurting Essett (167¼) in that session, before pushing on over the last four rounds. Superbly conditioned, Galvano (166½) took no chances and boxing behind the left jab and banging in rights whenever the opportunity arose. Afterwards, Galvano admitted that he had been hurt by body shots and that had influenced his decision to box on the outside.
