Nate starts in again with leg kicks and punches. He’s landing combinations at will. Starnes is doing nothing except upsetting the crowd. End of round. Again, 10-9 to Quarry, but could be another 10-8.

Round 3:Starnes comes out, looking to land a shot or two. But he’s throwing them as singles, doing no damage. Quarry still stalking. Not much action now at all with 2 minutes left. Time’s running out and Quarry peppering Starnes with more kicks and punches. Starnes flips off Nate as he’s getting hit in the head. Fight coming to a close. Nate taunts Kalib right as the round ends. Once again score it 10-9 for Quarry. Easy decision for “The Rock.” All 3 judges give the bout to Nate Quarry with one scoring it 30-24. Crowd boos Starnes loudly, but they seem to appreciate the effort of Quarry. Nate quotes Rocky IV, getting applause from the crowd.
