Jaime struggled and did not get the knockout expected before a fighter who moved a lot and had his moments, especially in the final part. At the end of 12 episodes, the judges gave cards of 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112, showing how even the fight was and how complicated it was for the Mexican.
Jaime accepted in the end that the Irish Hogan was more complicated than expected, even reaching the point of desperation and fatigue, leaving to see the possibility of going to 160 pounds, because he conceded that the sacrifice to mark 154 pounds weighed him enough in the development of the contest as to feel uncomfortable.
With this result, Munguía improved his professional record to 33-0 with 26 rounds of fighting, while Hogan was left with 28-2-1 and 7 knockouts.
Óscar de la Hoya, who promotes Jaime in association with Fernando Beltrán, said at the end that Munguía's fight was complicated, but he gave credit for the closure he had. He accepted, in conversation with Canal Space, that he is taking experience and that he should take care of the right hand that was entering him all night.
In the endorsement, the duel between the Mexican Diego de la Hoya and Enrique Bernache, agreed to 10 rounds in Featherweight, finished just in the second round with the result of No Contest, due to a severe cut in the forehead of the second caused by a accidental head shock. Diego, cousin of legend Óscar de la Hoya, stayed with 21-0 and 10 knockouts for 24-12 and 12 Enrique's nocauts. For his part, the Brazilian Patrick Teixeira won by majority decision, which should have been unanimous, the Chihuahuan Mario 'Águila' Lozano after 10 rounds in weight Superwelter.
In addition, the local Arely Muciño retained the Mosca scepter of the World Boxing Organization on the Venezuelan Yaitineth Altuve with cards of 98-90, 97-91 and 98-90 after an intense battle in which they were close to surprise the champion, They sent her knocked out standing at the end of the ninth round, and barely managed to recover for the tenth to finish the battle in which she sent a couple of times to the canvas to her challenger.
