In what was a huge shock, the aggressive, unheralded Rivas (114) punched his way to victory over the fancied southpaw champion. Morales (114½) was unable to overcome the challenger’s early lead, despite making up ground down the home stretch, and lacked the ability to find the room to get his punches off. Constantly crowded out, Morales would have to go back to the drawing board.
