Pacquiao vs Mosley Results
- I hate to say any fight was "easy," but Manny Pacquiao had it pretty easy last night against old Shane Mosley. It pains me to "trash" Shane Mosley, but we have to be honest about who he is. If anyone ever tries to sell you another Shane Mosley fight with the speed that we know he doesn't have and the trigger we know he can't pull, hey, watch it if you want to, but expect nothing. Pacquiao dominated a virtual shutout decision over Mosley.
- Jorge Arce dramatically stopped Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. in the 12th round, throwing a flurry of punches that forced Vazquez's father to throw in the towel. It was the Fight of the Night, without question, and Arce looked better than he has in years. It was Vazquez's first loss.
- In a decent comeback that saw Kelly Pavlik amp it up in the 10th round and finally look like the old Pavlik to some degree, the former middleweight champ topped a game and difficult Alfonso Lopez by majority decision. It was a decent fight, and interesting to watch.
- In the PPV opener, Ray Narh quit after three rounds against Mike Alvarado. Apparently, Narh had been vomiting and had diarrhea before the fight. I shi-- kid you not.
Other Saturday Results
- Mike Perez won Prizefighter, beating Tye Fields in the final.
- 48-year-old Evander Holyfield scored a TKO-10 win over Brian Nielsen in Denmark. No surprise. Like I said the other day, Holyfield was a great champion. Nielsen always stunk. And Nielsen hadn't fought in nine years coming into this fight.
- Daniel Geale beat Sebastian Sylvester to lift a 160-pound trinket in Germany.
- Koki Kameda beat Daniel Diaz in Japan. Diaz retired from the fight after the 11th round. Tomoki Kameda also won on the card, and prospect Masao Nakamura was stopped in 1:01 by Ronald Pontillas.
This one goes out to Manny Pacquiao. Call the guy out. Call Floyd Mayweather Jr. out.
