The young García tried several strategies to beat the experienced Juárez, who at the beginning of the fight went on the attack and hit him early, from short and medium distances.
The scores showed an even fight in the early rounds between the equally matched opponents. García threw his cross while Juárez bet on uppercuts. That gave García good results, but not enough for a knockout.

The fight continued, with Juárez in front and García waiting for the right moment to counterattack, forcing more blows in the center of the ring, with the scores after the middle rounds all in favor of “El Magnifico,” 77-75, 77-75 and 80-72.
In the last two rounds, Juárez tried to salvage the fight by going for the knockout, but García changed his strategy and kept his distance. He threw punches sporadically, knowing that the score would bring him victory.
