Good round for Rojas, who sweeps with his hooks but digs well to the body and throws a good straight left.

Arce is the stronger of the two.

1-0 Rojas for me based on the assertion of his size advantage.

2-0 Rojas. The taller man landed a right hook that buzzed Arce.

If Arce doesn't stay off the ropes, he could be in big trouble.

Do we see early stoppage here? It looks like a bad decision for Arce to fight Rojas.

Almost threw a little down on Rojas as a lark...beginning to regret that I didn't.

Very good fight!

Arce had a better round, but I still like the more precise combination punching of Rojas.

I do wonder if the tall man will tire. If he his conditioning holds, he has a great, great shot. But I wonder if it will.

Rojas 3-0.

Round 3 - Rojas won that round through speedy, hard combinations that snapped Arce's head to and fro.
Rojas also got in some punishing bodywork.

Arce got off a few good shots late in the round, but Rojas answered with the harder, cleaner punches.

Round 3- Rojas

4-0 Rojas. A wider round.

Arce landed a few hooks that snapped back Rojas' head, but the taller, lankier fighter bounced numerous shots off Arce's dome.

Rojas obviously is a much better fighter than one might assume.

Arce does seem to be taking these punches OK, but he's catching a lot of leather.

Is that a concern because he looks a little soft, or just speculative pondering?

Round 4 is a great action-packed round.
Both fighters going toe-to-toe.
Rojas outpunching Arce at the start -- then Arce taking over in the middle with hard hooks -- Rojas battering Arce at the end.
Arce has a cut on the bridge of his nose.

Closer round but Rojas' accurate combinations and powershots edging it for him.

Round 4 - Rojas

I thought Rojas looked a little winded down the stretch of round 3, but he bounced right back. He looks fine.
