Soto was a game adversary, but was unable to match Hernandez-Harrison’s superior boxing skills and speed, constantly getting peppered by an effective jab. Hernandez-Harrison dropped Soto at the close of the second before flooring Soto with a combination that left his opponent crumbled on the mat in the final seconds of the fifth round.
