With the bell ringing in the opening round, the pair expressed their intention that it would be an action-packed slugfest. Ramirez, who came up refueled with new energy after facing a loss in his professional debut, dominated the fight most of the time.

The Cuban fighter began creating problems for Nova in the third round. As he landed a few hooks on the latter, which wounded him badly and it did not take long from then to reach fruition. In the fifth round, Ramirez finally seized his opponent in the corner with a strong, sneaky left cross.
