Both men an knockout artists and and fought cautious at first, but both landed big bombs as the fight progressed. Walters dropped Marriaga in round nine and went on to win 118-109, 117-110, and 119-108 on the scorecards.

Only Marriaga was eligible to win the WBA belt, so the title remains vacant with the Walters victory.
