Mosley knocks out Mayorga in Six
- Updated: August 29, 2015
Shane Mosley stepped into the ring for the second time with Ricardo Mayorga and got the same result, as Mosley scored a knockout in the sixth round at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Having stopped Mayorga in the 12th round in 2008, Mosley needed half the rounds to do the same thing, as he took advantage of a very slow Mayorga to land just about everything he threw at him.
Mosley (48-10-1, 39 KOs) worked Mayorga (31-9-1, 25 KOs) over to the body and landed a hard left downstairs that hurt Mayorga, and a series of additional body shots put him down for the count.
In the opening fight, Joel Diaz Jr. (20-0, 16 KOs) scored a fourth round stoppage over Luis Arceo (28-14-4, 18 KOs), who was completely overmatched.
