Gomez down in the first. Going into the eighth, Wilfredo's face is completely swollen. Both his eyes are almost sealed shut. Gomez is hurt bad with a devastating right hand, and then is pounded on with devastating left hooks and a couple of right hands. He goes down. Padilla counts him, and when Gomez stands up on his feet and indicates that he is ready to fight, Padilla looks at his facial features, and signals the end by waving his arms.
