Ayala having more experience in the ring. Vaugh fights very straight up and doesn’t move too fast around the ring. Ayala started off the fight picking his punches, trying to open up Vaugh and seeing if Vaugh had any power. At times Ayala keeping Alexander off by the jab and then keeping his left hand low. Alexander has more of the power to the punch. Ayala landing the cleaner shots and shooting with combos. We got a bloody nose on Alexander. It might even be broken. Alexander doesn’t seem phased by it. During round 7 Ayala got caught with a left to the jaw and he went down hard at 1:42.

The 1st bout was Green’s pro debut and Crespo’s 2nd fight on November 5, 2011. Green ended up winning by UD (36-40; 37-39; 37-39). For this bout, Green started off controlling the bout, while circling around Crespo landing the cleaner shots the fight continued in the same direction up through the end of round 4 when referee Danny Schiavone stopped the bout due to n accidental head butt above Green’s left eye during round 2. The cut didn’t effect Green’s performance. Round 3, Referee Danny Schiavone gave Crespo a point deduction for an illegal blow. It was like a wwe move hitting with his back turned.
