The punching power of Chavez against the speed of Taylor electrified the fans and the pre-match hype was intense. And the fight met all expectations. Taylor took an early lead which he held onto for the whole of the fight. But Chavez gradually ground him down, hurting him more and more. By the 15th Taylor was bloodies and battered but still ahead with 2 of the judges. After being knocked down again he clawed his way upright by hanging onto the ropes but the referee stopped the fight with 2 seconds to go. Had he not, Taylor would have won. But he did and Chavez won on a TKO.
