Bringing a hit-and-run style to the ring, the challenger gave Vazquez (126) all the problems he could muster as he danced in and out, making difficult angles, and keeping the left jab going. Although Vazquez was the bigger puncher, occasionally catching Rios (126) with combinations of solid blows, he was unable to subdue the Nicaraguan who always came back for more and looked to have won as far as the fans were concerned. Vazquez forfeited the WBA version of the title on 21 March 1998 when failing to agree to a defence against Antonio Cermeno.
