Caballero is one of the Cuban boxers who has performed the best in the contest and in the first round of the fight against the Aztec, he demonstrated his superiority, attacking all the time and looking for his rival in the three distances, with which four of all five judges saw him win that round.
However, in the second round, Vega began to gain prominence on the ring and the Cuban hesitated at times to initiate the actions, maintaining a very defensive posture or, perhaps, taking a breath for what was ahead. Although the Cuban closed the segment better, three referees saw the Mexican beat the Cuban by two, causing that at the end of the intermediate round, four referees had even cards of 19-19 and only one 20-18 for Caballero.
Then everything was ready for the final round. Both fighters came out for the victory and staged a very even assault, but the Cuban was again the same as in his previous presentations and took the victory without objection and by unanimous decision of 5 × 0, with five identical 29-28 ballots.
