Mosley stops Mayorga
By Jim Dower: Making a comeback after two years out of the ring a soft looking Shane Mosley (48-9-1, 40 KOs) defeated a badly out of shape looking Ricardo Mayorga (31-9-1, 25 KOs) by a 6th round stoppage on Saturday night in their PPV rematch at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Mosley, 43, knocked a flabby looking Mayorga down with a hard body shot near the end of the 6th. The fight was then halted with one second left in the round at 2:59. Mayorga wasn’t too happy about the stoppage though, as he felt that Mosley had nailed him low with the shot.
For much of the fight, Mosley pressed the attack, hitting Mayorga with sharp right hands to the head and body. Mayorga seemed more interested in clowning around rather than fighting. He was constantly doing this, and it had to have been an energy drain for him. Mayorga looked like he came into the fight weighing in the mid-170s, and he didn’t have the energy to fight hard as he needed to.
