Arreola floored Quezada twice in the ninth, once with a left uppercut, then with three consecutive left hooks. Arreola, who stated after the bout he had injured his right hand in the eighth or ninth round, dropped Quezada a third time in the final round with an overhand right to the left ear. Arreola, who rose to 29-2 with 25 knockouts, failed to knock his opponent for the third consecutive bout. Quezada got stronger as the rounds progressed, throwing combinations and forcing Arreola to win this bout mostly with superior counter punching skill. Nonetheless, according to Arreola, "I give myself a C-minus. I could have done a lot more with the jab, but I didn't, so (Quezada went the distance) that's what happened." Arreola and Quezada were both Joe Goossen Goosen Tutor stablemates.
