Whyte looked to be cruising towards an inevitable points decision when a hard right uppercut from Rivas found its target, leaving Whyte on the canvas in the ninth, the American tried in vein to find a finish but Whyte survived the onslaught to win by scores of 115-112, 115-112, 116-111 to remain in pole position for a shot at the divisions ruler, Deontay Wilder.

Heavyweight David Price (25-6, 20 KOs) kept his winning streak alive by dominating Dave Allen (17-5-2, 14 KOs) over ten rounds on the nights undercard. Allen simply had no answers to the imposing Liverpudlian, quitting after the tenth.
