Bout Summary

Poster

In the first four rounds of the bout, Marquez continually walked into counter lefts form Casamayor. It took Marquez until the fifth round to be able to find range with his right hand. By the fifth round, a cut over his right eye was opened and as the fight wore on, an abrasion on the bridge of his nose bled along with the cut over his eye. Rounds five, six, seven and eight were rounds where Marquez took the initiative and landed straight punches from outside, but he was also nailed by Casamayor whenever he lunged forward. In the late rounds of the bout, Marquez finally began to find his rhythm, adding his hook and choice body shots to his jab and straight right. Casamayor was dropped by a left hook as he pulled away from an intense exchange two minutes into the eleventh round. Casamayor got up and immediately tried to smother Marquez by holding, but Marquez let his hands go in furious combination, repeatedly stunning Casamayor who fell into the ropes where Marquez measured him for a perfect right hand that sent him again to the canvas, where the referee waved the bout off.
