Highlights

  • –Miguel Vazquez came out uncharacteristically aggressive against Erick Bone and landed the cleaner shots early, including a big right hand during a second-round exchange.

  • –Bone picked up the pace in the third round and landed several body shots and a big right hand as he began to mix up his punches.

  • –Vazquez continued to work behind his jab and use his footwork to control the later rounds and earn a unanimous decision.

A step up in weight for Miguel Vazquez produced a revitalized attack for the former world champion—and a familiar result.

Vazquez showed uncharacteristic aggression as he outboxed Erick Bone to win a 10-round unanimous decision in their 144-pound main event at Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio.

Even while retaining his 135-pound title for four years, Miguel Vazquez employed an awkward, defensive style that, although it earned plenty of wins, didn’t always win over fans. But the 29-year-old Mexican confronted Bone from the opening bell, albeit cautiously, and landed a big right hand in Round 2 to set the tone.

Bone, who was fighting Vazquez less than two weeks after replacing the injured Felix Diaz, picked up the pace in Round 3 and landed several body shots and a big right hand over the next few rounds as he began to mix up his punches.

With many rounds being extremely close, Vazquez continued to pile up the points in the latter half of the fight as he worked behind his jab and consistently landed the cleaner punches against the 27-year-old Ecuadorian.

Bone suffered his third straight loss in a fight against a former world champion, having previously been defeated by Chris Algieri and Shawn Porter.
