Both men tagged each other with some heavy punches in the opening two minutes. Hooker came with several leg kicks that Vick checked. But, as the round neared the midway point, Hooker feinted to the body and then sent Vick crashing to the deck with a booming left. Hooker landed a couple more shots from above and the fight was called. Pivotal and memorable win for Hooker.
