Bout Summary

Lara maintained distance well in the opening round, throwing left hands behind a measuring jab. Boone, while grabbing the top rope, went down from what Referee Jay Nady ruled a slip early in the 2nd Round. He stepped up his offense in the first minute of the 3rd Round, but was mellowed by Lara's in-and-out attack. Boone was warned in the 4th for holding, but was clearly being more active that in the previous rounds. Midway through Round 6, Boone was momentarily hurt but was able to avoid Lara's followup attack.
