Both guys would come out throwing some big shots in the 1st round and they both landed. In the 2nd round, both guys would land some big shots and both got busted open and Referee Herb Dean would stop the fight as Alvarez would throw some knees that some would say look questionable and then ruled the fouls accidental which would lead to the fight to be ruled a no contest at 4:12 of the second round.
