The fight was a give and take, with heavy blows from the first bell that continued throughout the fight. In the opening rounds, Rodriguez advanced and León countered, with Rodriguez launching a punitive attack on León’s body, which responded with hooks to the head and gunshots at the body.
León scored four uppercuts in a row, but the bell saved Rodríguez. The final rounds were a fierce exchange of blows, both trying to eliminate each other and not leave the decision to the judges, but the persistence of both prevented the fight from being defined by their fists.
