After an interesting Round one Michael Torres established his supremacy and Vera his tenacity over the next 7 rounds of this bout.  At times Vera's corner was legitimately questioned in Round 5 where Vera almost went down twice. In Round 4 the charging style of Vera lead to slip by Torres Round 8 started out with a big blast but Torres's was blasting wicked counters to punches that that were so wide they went through neighboring counties.  Gallery of Fight

Oscar came home Oscar Won a more cynical voice ringside said "Oh shit this guy can't fight" but he could avoid being knocked out and he could land a  counter or make things interesting.  He could hold he could lead with his head he could annoy at times and he could eat a shot.  The fight went all 8 rounds.  Diaz did not face canned Tuna and the fight lasted all 8 rounds.Gallery of the Fight
