Boxing fans were expecting to see a war between two aggressive boxer but then the champion Berchelt chose to be a technician boxer instead to control the fight against heavy handed challenger. Berchelt was on the run throughout the fight but effectively and constantly landed jabs and combinations to Miura. The Japanese challenger occasionally landed hooks or cross but never throws a significant combinations that could hurt the champion, In the late rounds Miura , sensing that  he was outscored by Berchelt he despirately throws wild hooks and cross and tried to score a miraculous win but Berchelt was too quick to dodge the big punches.
