Gomez remained undefeated with a majority-decision win in a fight that could have gone either way. The judges scored the bout 76-76, 77-75 and 77-75 in his favor.

In a tight opening round, Gomez landed a good right hand to the body just before the bell. He started quicker in the second, landing a right to the head and asserting his jab as his confidence seemed to swell. He ducked and dived to land a good counter shot with a minute on the clock. Arellano landed a body shot to close out the round. 

In Round 3, Arellano landed a right hand down the pipe to kick things off. However, Gomez replied with a straight left that stunned Arellano but from which he recovered quickly.

Gomez loaded up to land a big left hand to the body to open the fourth. Arellano showed more urgency, but Gomez was a little sharper in a tight round. Arellano began the fifth with two aggressive jabs, but the pace slowed other than a body shot by each. Arellano chipped away as the more active fighter in the round. 

The sixth saw another tight round, with the fighters trading leads and counters in what had become a very tactical fight. Arellano’s right eye had begun to bleed again, but he finished the round with a flurry. The seventh was another close back-and-forth round, leaving it open for either fighter to claim the bout in the final round. 

Arellano came out of the gates firing in the eighth, but he was smothered by Gomez. The young Puerto Rican landed a big left to the head, but Arellano would return fire with an urgent combination. Gomez showed poise to land a smart right hook and do the better work in the final minute.
