Keeping his fast jab going, Tapia (114½) held Soto (114) at bay for most of the night, never really allowing him the opportunity to get inside where he could do some damage. Finishing with cuts on the right eye and the bridge of his nose, the challenger received warm applause for the way he stuck to the task, especially in the final 30 seconds when both men threw caution to the wind and went toe-to-toe.
