Making a sluggish start, the champion found the awkward Alexandrov (129¾) one tough customer and struggled to find any rhythm in his work until he began to score well with the jab and several heavy rights to the head in the fourth. It was still messy though and in the latter rounds, Alexandrov, who was cut over the left eye in the seventh, began to work even harder on the inside. Despite being thrown to the canvas in the tenth, Hernandez (129¾) got back to his boxing and it was his cleaner work that got him the win.
