referee: Johnny Kelly 6-2 | 8-2 | 3-6
Scoring: Kelly 6-2-2 (Hairston), 8-2 (Hairston), 3-6-1 (Gavilan)
"Gavilan sparred at long range through the first two rounds but then elected to match Hairston’s style of furious in-fighting. Thus the final eight rounds were loaded with slugging at close quarters and several times they fought past the bell. There were no knockdowns, but Gavilan slowed Hairston in the ninth and then had him wobbly at the end of the 10th from three straight rights." (UP)
