I'm told this was a bantamweight fight that was mostly fought at a distance and over-cautiously by both girls, provoking some boos and catcalls from the crowd. The third round was apparently the only one to contain significant action as Rubalcava opened up and scored with frequent hard left hooks to Cervantes's head. For most of the rest of the fight Cervantes was content to stay as far as possible from Rubalcava, who showboated but pursued her only in spurts, much to the crowd's displeasure. Rubalcava remains undefeated at 4-0 (1 KO), while Cervantes drops to 1-4.
