What a way to end the year! What a war from the get go! The fight began in a fast pace with Trinidad connecting a solid combination that dropped his Mexican opponent. Vargas was able to get up, but another combination hurt him a second time and led to another knockdown. Early in the 2nd round Trinidad was in the offensive but Vargas connected a solid combination at the round's closing moments which opened a cut over Trinidad's right eye. In the 4th round's opening seconds one of Vargas' punches connected on Trinidad's jaw and down he went, marking the 8th knockdown in his career. In the 5th round Vargas was in control of the fight's flow, landing combinations at will. In the 6th round Trinidad regained control of the fight's tempo that lasted throughout the contest, landing punches on Vargas' head and left jabs to the ribs. In the 8th, Vargas appeared to be showing the 1st signs of exhaustion, which slowed his offense while Trinidad stated to step it up. This pattern continued throughout the 9th/10th/11th rounds. Opening the 12th & final round Vargas threw everything he had into it, landing a solid left hook, but Trinidad countered the attack with a left hook bomb that put an exhausted Vargas into a heap on the canvas, bravely Vargas got back up, but was subsequently knocked down for a 2nd time. With Vargas defenceless, Trinidad let rip with multiple combinations, until the referee stopped slaughter. Judges scores up until the stopage all had Trinidad ahead: | referee: Jay Nady | judge: Duane Ford 103-100 | judge: Stanley Christodoulou 104-100 | judge: Glen Hamada 104-99
