Alfred is matched with another lightweight (about 135 pounds) named Rivera. Following amateur  rules, they are scheduled for three 2-minute rounds. Rivera is short, wide, muscular, and relatively  immobile. Donatelli advises Alfred to "stick and run," which recalls the tactic Alfred used so  effectively against Denny, a similar fighter, in the sparring described in Chapter 13. Unfortunately,  Alfred is numb with nervousness as he comes out of his corner and walks into Rivera's opening  punch to Alfred's mouth. Nevertheless, Alfred quickly recovers and fights well, hitting and moving,  until he listens to the jeering of the crowd, taunting him for his evasive fighting tactics. Alfred stands  and fights, playing to Rivera's strength, and ends up on the canvas with the referee counting over  him. The bell rings to end the first round as the referee reaches "three."
