Saul Alvarez vs. Shane Mosley Results
10:25 pm: They take the time to do the national anthems before Canelo vs. Mosley, not typical for a co-feature. The Ring Kings PPV is all ceremony and no substance, so far. Surprise, surprise. At least the crowd is getting a bit fired up during the ring walks. Shane is smiling and looks calm as always, Canelo looks a bit nervous on the big stage. He’s making $2 million for this fight, a huge sum.
10:37 pm: They are taking a ton of time here for the freaking co-feature. And they are promoting a History channel Hatfields vs. McCoys series, and so Mosley is fighting out of the “blue Hatfields corner”. Jesus.
Rd 1: As the fight starts, both men are feeling one another out. I think it takes Canelo about 75 seconds until he throws his first punch, a jab. Mosley in turn decides to get off first, throwing his own feeler jabs. Canelo goes to the body, Mosley staying busier. Not much action in round 1, but Mosley’s round as Canelo sits back.
Rd 2: Canelo decides he has waited enough and begins opening up more in round 2. He’s working in body shots, and he’s going upstairs too with some serious intentions, throwing serious power shots. Lands a few to the delight of the crowd, and controls the second round.
Rd 3: They cut to an interview with Cotto in between the 2nd and 3rd rounds, he’s hanging out in his dressing room in an unbuttoned dress shirt, and casually talks about the fight to come. Canelo is making a point of going to the body against Shane. Mosley lands a shot, Canelo answers with a big right hand that gets the crowd Oohing. Canelo is cut from a head butt over his left eye, ruled accidental. Bleeding pretty bad. Round to Canelo, though.
Rd 4: Canelo’s cut seems under control, but it’s definitely in a bad spot, right on his left eyelid. Seems like they did a good job with it, though. Andre Ward joins the announcing team here. Canelo continuing to get stronger, Mosley already starting to fade. How much will each man press – Canelo to get the stoppage, Mosley to get the win? Rd 4 to Canelo.
Rd 5: Shane staying busy here in round 5, and Canelo decides to retaliate and open up in turn. Crowd getting into it as Canelo lands a few shots. Mosley needs to punch to try to cause damage and win, but when he does, Canelo is simply getting busy himself nad landing the harder, cleaner shots. Canelo’s round, 4-1 right now.
Rd 6: The fight is at least getting exciting right now. Mosley looking gassed, and getting beaten up. Canelo coming forward and throwing bombs. Canelo lands a huge right hand bomb, staggers Mosley, then Alvarez goes back to the body. Big round for Ca-ne-Lo! Ca-ne-lo!
Rd 7: The announcers now shit to talking about Mosley getting badly hurt, as he’s getting tagged but not going down. I don’t think it’s that dire, but Canelo is in complete control here. Mosley isn’t offering much resistance. If it keeps up, his corner should eventually pull the plug.
Rd 8: Canelo picking up the pace and becoming more aggressive. Has no fear of Mosley right now… and there’s no reason to either. Doing whatever he wants in there, so another big round for him.
Rd 9: Canelo snaps Mosley’s head back with a jab. He lands some huge body shots, and Mosley is hurt. Mouth is wide open and he’s breathing heavy. Really hurt Mosley there. Mosley survives the round, but this is ugly at this point.
Rd 10: Everyone probably a little bit uncomfortable with the fight at this point. Merchant chimes in with a solid comment for a change, talking of past-great fighters, “they don’t believe they’re beaten, until they’re beaten up.” Canelo’s cut opens up, so it looks as if he’s been in a war, but he hasn’t. Mosley is more lively here in round 10. But right as he flurries, Canelo lands a flush right to the face that pushes him back. Mosley had a better round here, but still clearly to Canelo, we have it 9 rounds to 1 for him.
Rd 11: Mosley has decided he may as well give things a go here and put up a battle. He’s opening up and throwing much more, landing some decent shots, although Canelo isn’t bothered much. Mosley is absolutely gassed, but using his jab, then holding on. Canelo taking off the round seemingly, letting Shane do some work. Mosley comes forward and lands a few shots, Canelo counters with ab ig right. Round to Mosley, why not? 9-2.
Rd 12: Mosley definitely more enlivened here, perhaps knowing he’s closing the show not just for tonight, but perhaps on a career. His upturn in workrate has quieted Canelo a little bit, who at one point was going for a stoppage, but is now just riding it out. Now Canelo picks it up, and lands some huge shots. He wants to end on a positive note, too. We have it 118-110, 10 rounds to 2, for Saul Canelo Alvarez.
Official scorecards read: 119-109, 118-110 and 119-109, all for Canelo Alvarez
Jessie Vargas vs. Steve Forbes
9:40 pm and Vargas-Forbes is set to begin… remember of course that Vargas was going to fight Alfonso Gomez, who pulled out just a few weeks ago with an injury.
Forbes has a good first round, displaying his skill set and experience. Vargas looking to get comfortable against the veteran. Vargas opens up the second determined to be more aggressive. Working behind the jab and pushing forward. Forbes tying up on the inside, can’t get off any offense in close.
Vargas working hard mentally to not open up and become too aggressive, and then opening himself up to Forbes’ counters. He’s definitely controlling things though. Forbes is displaying a bit of the sparring partner mentality, as well as simply showing his age against the younger, bigger, stronger kid. Action is slow here, and as the crowd is beginning to fill up, they’re also getting restless.
Adrien Broner is a guest announcer during round 5-6, and that instantly becomes more interesting than the fight itself, as a few chants of “Boring” come in from the crowd. This has all the makings of your average Tuesday afternoon sparring session in hopes of working up a sweat and improving on your conditioning. Vargas is sweeping all the rounds, but isn’t looking overly impressive.
Round 8 now, and I’m yawning and waiting for Canelo-Mosley, at which point I’ll just be waiting for Mayweather-Cotto. Way to put on a nice undercard, geez. Things are just staying at a consistent, nonthreatening pace here. Vargas is getting off first, he’s quicker and bigger. Forbes is looking for spots, and surviving just fine, but not pressing too much.
Alright, thankfully the fight is over and we can move on with our lives. The official scorecards read: 100-90, 97-93, and 98-92 for Jessie Vargas. Forbes is now 3-8 in his last 11 fights.
Vargas UD Forbes

Quintana looking strong in the opening rounds. He looks to be operating in control. Latimore trying to get himself into the action, using his jab, while Quintana is being a bit more active and confusing Latimore a bit.
Latimore begins being more aggressive, coming forward and looking to dictate. Quintana fine with that, it plays into his counterpunching. He turns things around and comes into Latimore’s aggression, and nails him with some solid shots at the end of round 3.
Quintana continues to be effective through round 4, he’s landing more shots, and the punches he lands are cleaner. In the beginning of round 5, he really opens up and nails Latimore, Latimore beings tying up. Quintana really is in control now. He’s confident and feeling it. Latimore doesn’t quite know what to do, and is looking to tire a bit.
In the 6th, Latimore is in big trouble, and Quintana pours it on. He decks Latimore, and Latimore struggles to get up, and once he does, the referee calls off the action to no complaints.
