Galahed often tied his opponent’s hands, dangerously walked forward with his head, which not only Hughes, but also the referee did not like – he first warned, and then fined him in the 10th round.

The fight turned out to be as competitive as possible, everything was decided by a foul of Galahed. Judges score: 116-111, 114-114 and 114-113.
