(AP) The action was much the same, but this time the result was different. Mike Alvarado boxed and punched his way to a narrow but unanimous 12-round decision Saturday night over Brandon Rios in the rematch of their slugfest from five months ago.


Alvarado won by two points on two scorecards and one on the other to avenge his seventh-round loss to Rios in October.


It wasn't as dramatic as the first fight, when Rios stopped Alvarado after being rocked himself a round earlier. But the fight was still thrilling at times, fought at a high level between two game warriors.


It was the first loss for Rios, while Alvarado avenged his only defeat in the 140-pound bout.
