Rd 1: both fighters open the round to cautiously. Rios is throwing a bunch of jabs. Ramos lands a nice hook-straight combo. Give the first to Rios based off of higher work rate.
Rd 2: both fighters still fighting cautiously, and not landing anything significant. Ramos is sitting back trying to counter punch as the round ends without either doing much damage. Hard round to score, but I will give it to Rios due to higher work rate.
Rd 3: Rios is throwing a bunch of punches, and Ramos is sitting back. Ramos seems to be feeling the effect by a combination landed by Rios as he shakes his head. Ramos is still sitting back trying to counter punch, but Rios is keeping too much distance.

Rd 7: Ramos opens the round moving left and right as Rios is throwing a bunch of jabs. Ramos holding onto Rios again. Rios lands a hard right hand and and is pressing forward. Uneventful 7th rd, but I would give the round to Rios once again based off of higher work rate and harder punches
