The rivalry between the University of the East and the Far Eastern University can be felt inside the San Juan Arena as both squads and their schoolmates cheered for their teams and jeered the opponent in all 7 matches. In the end, it was John Michael Agno in the last and middle-heavyweight match securing the win over Ivan Narombaba to give UE a come from behind win over their rivals.

FEU finweight Ariel Bacud started things-off with a 7-4 win over UAAP S76 rookie of the year King Philip Pineda. Joenel Rendora dispatched Eric Garces in the flyweight match with a 13-6 win to tie the series. Jenar Torillos would give the UE-side the match lead with a 13-4 blow-out of Kristian Tagarao. With their back against the wall, Elijah Marcelino tied the score 6-all by forcing Frasser Tahil to commit 4 kyonggo’s in the latter stages of the 2nd round to extend the match into sudden death. Marcelino would hit a well-timed body kick to gain the golden point to tie the series once more. Clint Ferrer gave FEU a 3-2 lead in the series with a 9-7 win over Raymond Cano. Cris Mirasol tied the series for UE with a 14-11 win over Jayson Samson. The all-important heavyweight match-up saw John Michael Agno gain an early 4-1 lead over Ivan Norombaba in the 1st round. Agno would not relinquish the lead, successfully evading Ivan’s head and body kicks, to escape with a 5-3 lead and an FEU win.
