  • Alvarez went down midway through the 11th Round from a straight right hand. He was up early and received a standing eight-count.
  • Rodriguez came out on the attack early in Round 12 and had Alvarez hurt. It appeared at one point that the referee might step in a wave an end to the bout. His aggression left him open, however, as Alvarez landed a counter shot that staggered Gonzalez and put him on the defensive.
