Hank, who pressed all the way, started the damage with a right in the 2nd round. It started Giargello's nose bleeding and it continued to bleed throughout the fight. Giardello's best round was the 7th, when he knocked Hank into the ropes with a right to the jaw. Hank recovered without further damage. The two judges and the referee all gave the fight to Hank." -Associated Press
