Tough shot: Degale lands a shuddering uppercut

Referee Luigi Muratore may have inadvertently given Zuniga valuable seconds to recover after thinking he had heard the bell to end the round but after realising his mistake, allowed the fight to continue.

Zuniga was looking increasingly clueless against Degale's speed but valiantly kept ploughing forward as his opponent's work-rate dipped slightly.
