Despite Velasco asserting dominance with more clear, better connected hits and speedier moves, two judges saw the bout in Biea's favor (by a score of 115-112 and 116-112), while the third scored the fight in Velasco's favor (115-112).
33-year-old Biea was sent to the floor in the sixth round, and in the 11th he suffered a broken eye socket after Velasco involuntarily headbutted him.
