The one-time light heavyweight title challenger heeded their advice for a time coming out in the third and continually taking Hill down, controlling most of the round with wrestling. But the game plan was quickly forgotten in the fourth.
With both men looking tired, Hill came forward landing punches and Santos, rather than return to wrestling, immediately responded with looping shots of his own. After a brief pause in the action, Hill hit him with another big punch and Santos again looked to brawl wildly. Hill was more precise though, dropping Santos with a straight right and then pouncing on his grounded foe to pound him until the referee halted the action.
