Parejo started retreating and Figueroa sensing blood, chased his opponent around the ring and stopped him from escaping, handing him the punishment there on the ropes.
This continued in the remaining rounds and by the eight round, Parejo’s corner had seen enough of the one sided beating and had to stop the fight, handing Figueroa the win.
