González’s work paid off immediately, catching Juárez with a long, straight right-hand punch that sent Juárez to the canvas in the first round. From there, it was an uphill battle for Juárez who changed his strategy, throwing more straight punches, looking to do damage with left hand flips, and finally squeezing the champion after the fifth round.
In the sixth round, González was put on the ropes with Juárez getting in a flurry of punches to the face, but González’s corner took care of him and did not let him crash in the final rounds. With a lot of leg movement and long-distance blows, González held his last attacks for Juárez until the end of the ten rounds resulting in his victory and remaining champion.
