This fight was competitive from the opening bell, but Morono was getting the better of the exchanges. Despite filling in on short notice he was outpacing Ponzinibbio almost the entire way. However, Ponzinibbio packs one of the best right hands in the division and he let it loose in the third round. It connected twice and sent Morono crashing onto the canvas. Ponzinibbio rained down a final blow before the referee finally stepped in for the TKO stoppage.
