Good fight happened in the Main Event. The current and the only Filipino world boxing champion today faces the younger and the 2 time former world champion from Mexico Francisco Rodriguez jr.

Francisco starts to be the active man in the match but Nietes who is the most accurate at that time became more aggressive in the later round. Starting at round 4 Nietes become the aggressor and trying to pick his game, Nietes connects a good uppercut and hooks that makes Rodriguez Jr. uncomfortable.

In the 6th round Nietes totally controlling the fight. He was confident and the Mexican opponent became more cautious on his punches.

Round 9: Nietes still dominating and connects a lot of counter punches. Rodriguez seems frustrated.
