Billed for World title at 160lbs. Blake clinched so much that Borrell had trouble landing a clean blow. He was trying to keep the fight at long range in the fourth round. At the bell ending the fourth Borrell landed a right to the jaw which put Blake down and out. Evidently Blake had heard the bell and was turning away, but neither Borrell nor the referee heard it. Under the circumstances, and since Blake could not continue, the referee decided that the fairest outcome was to call the fight "no contest," and did so.
