Details: All three judges gave the Ukrainian a unanimous victory: 118-110, 117-111, 117-111.

The first rounds were dominated by the Ukrainian boxer, who was more aggressive, powerful and focused. In the third round, Bohachuk pushed his opponent to the ropes and threw a powerful series of punches that left Mendoza's face covered in blood.

The first six rounds were dominated by Bohachuk.

Nothing much changed in the second half of the fight. The Ukrainian boxer attacked, and the American tried to strike back, but Bohachuk remained focused and worked well with his feet, constantly landing punches.

In the championship rounds, Mendoza's only hope was a takedown, and in the 11th round, the American was close to it - the boxers exchanged punches, and Bohachuk almost missed a powerful attack for the first time but managed to stand. In the 12th round, the boxers continued to exchange powerful punches, but neither of them was able to land the decisive blow.

It is worth noting that, for the first time, Bohachuk failed to finish a winning fight by knockout.

Thus, Serhii Bohachuk became the 13th Ukrainian boxer to win a world title.
