To combat this, Katejev boxed on the back foot for much of the contest, scoring with counters and using his footwork to keep him away from trouble as Cardona (146½) made the running. Although Katejev was shaken up in the second round by a heavy left hook, he came back strongly with left uppercuts and left-right combinations and despite the Puerto Rican making a strong run from the eighth through to the final bell he failed to make up the deficit. Cardona’s cause was not helped when he had a point deducted for landing repeated low blows in the 11th.
