Hawkins was using a lot of movement at the start, boxing and using defense, as Matias was stalking and applying pressure. Matias has a much better second round, when he was really letting his hands go and getting closer to Hawkins.

Matias continued to take the fight to Hawkins in the third, letting his heavy hands go. The fourth was closer, Matias continued to press and throw – and Hawkins was able to land good punches in close as well. In the fifth, Matias was really starting to take over and Hawkins seemed to be wearing down.

During the sixth, Matias was pounding on Hawkins and forced him down to his knees for a knockdown. Hawkins beat the count and Matias really went after him with punches for the remainder of the round.
