In the third round, after one minute, Flores rocked Luna with an overhand right on the chin, forcing her to hold Flores.

In the fourth round, the referee took a point from Luna for excessive holding. Flores never stopped throwing punches backing Luna into a corner at the bell. In the fifth round, due to a head butt from Flores opened a cut on the left eyebrow of Luna, causing the referee to deduct a point.
In the seventh round, Luna kept the jab in the face of Flores, who never stopped throwing punches. In the eighth and ninth rounds, Luna came back; landing left hooks to the chin of the aggressive Flores, who landed overhand rights.

In the tenth and final round, it was an all-action round for both boxers. It was close at the end, with Flores landing more but Luna more effective punches.

In the fourth and fifth rounds, Gonzalez did well having Perez with a shiner under his left eye against the ropes for the most part. In the sixth and last round, both let it all hang out in a close bout overall, with Gonzalez seeming to pull it out.
