Wlodarczyk also beat Palacios by split decision in April 2011.

This time, Wlodarczyk was faster and more effective, and the judges agreed with scores of 116-112, 117-112, 116-113.

Wlodarczyk, who improved to 47-2-1 said, ``Francisco, you are a very good fighter, very strong. Thank you.''

It was Wlodarczyk's fourth successive defense of the title he has held since May 2010, when he snatched it by knockout from Italy's Giacobbe Fragomeni.
