Bout Summary

Fedchenko looked to keep Marquez at a distance and work with his jab and straight right. Marquez, the stronger of the two, worked his way in with a jab and threw combinations with moderate success. A nick opened on the side of Marquez's nose in Round 1. Marquez found success working to the body in Rounds 3 and 4 as Fedchenko stayed mostly on the outside and jabbed. Marquez landed with increasing frequency in Round 5, highlighted by a good straight right. Marquez continued to pile up rounds through the middle of the fight outworking and outlanding Fedchenko. Round 10 was a big one for Marquez. He seemed to have Fedchenko hurt in the final minute of the round, a result of several power shots. Fedchenko, who still landed the occasional jab, was warned in Round 11 for pressing down on the back of Marquez's neck.
