Making his first defence Rivas (114¾) had a difficult time against the hardy Morquecho (115), who gave him all manner of problems, before he was awarded a technical decision win at the end of the penultimate round. The action had been stopped after damage to Rivas’ right eye, caused by an unintentional head butt, had reached the point where it was too severe for the champion to continue. Prior to the ending, although Rivas had shown plenty of attacking aggression he was unable to subdue the tough southpaw challenger despite being ahead on the cards.
