- Location: Swiss Park Hall, Chula Vista, California, USA
- Referee: Chuck Hassett
- A quick left hand caught Ayala leaning forward and sent him down in the opening minute of Round 1. He was up at the count of six and received the mandatory eight-count. By the midway point of Round 1, Ayala was already bleeding heavily from the nose.
- In Round 2, Ayala circled the ring attempting to keep Mayweather at a distance. Mayweather walked his opponent down and landed calculated shots. A big counter-left hand caught Ayala on the chin and put him flat on his back at 1:37 of Round 2. The referee, without beginning a count, immediately waved an end to the bout.
