But either way, right here you can check out all of the PPV Pacquiao vs. Mosley results and undercard results… Consider this the quick-hit version of our earlier live coverage.
Pacquiao vs. Mosley Results
Manny Pacquiao dominated Shane Mosley en route to a 120-107, 120-108 and 119-108 Unanimous Decision. Pacquiao scored a big knockdown in the third round, after actually starting off fairly slowly in the first two rounds and not showcasing very much movement.
From there, Pacquiao controlled the rest of the bout, and dictated the action. Mosley put on the performance that most expected from him… just the ability to pull the trigger, adapt to problems in the middle of the fight, put on a high work rate and so forth, all weren’t there.
Mosley scored a knockdown in the 10th against Pacquiao, but the knockdown was a completely bogus, terrible call. Clearly Mosley pushed Pacquiao down, and Pacquiao was actually the one throwing at the time.
The knockdown though lit a spark under Pacquiao, who then poured on the pressure more than he had been, and looked to close the show. He had Mosley in trouble a few times in the final rounds but he couldn’t get Shane out of there, so the wide Unanimous Decision will have to do. He complained of leg troubles after the bout, which might explain his lack of movement and speed in the opening stanzas.
Vazquez Jr. vs. Arce Results
In a Fight of the Year candidate, Jorge Arce turned back the clock and proved his doubters wrong by earning a 12th round TKO win over the previously undefeated Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. This fight was a war from the start, as Arce wouldn’t have it any other way, but Vazquez Jr. was more than up for the challenge.
He decked Arce with a perfectly placed, pinpoint left hook at the tail end of round 4, and a war ensued for the rest of the evening. Both men did each other in with digging body punches, and each had their moments. Arce though found another gear against the gassed Vazquez Jr. in the 11th, and he hurt him bad.
In the 12th, he continued where he left off, and he got Vazquez against the ropes and just teed off with dozens of punches. It looked like Joe Cortez was going to stop the fight, but he didn’t. Then Wilfredo Vazquez Sr. threw in the towel to protect his fighter – his son – from further punishment. The judges had it as a Majority Draw entering the 12th, but Arce took it out of their hands by closing the show with a great barrage. What a showing for Arce, and he looks better than he has looked in years and years.
Pavlik vs. Lopez Results
Kelly Pavlik handed Alfonso Lopez the first loss of his career via majority decision, with scores of 95-95, 99-91 and 98-92. Lopez started the fight in control, using a lot of movement, and showcasing great foot speed and hand speed, and landing combinations on Pavlik. Pavlik was looking very rusty in the early going, but started to turn the tide with effective body punching.
As he started to relax, he gained some rhythm and began working behind the jab. Lopez slowed down as a result, but most of the rounds were close. Pavlik had control but in the 9th and 10th, Lopez made another final push and the two traded in the 10th.
Pavlik deserved the decision, but the two judges who gave him the decision had it by very lopsided scorecards. ProBoxing-Fans.com thought the fight was more along the lines of a 96-94 score, and Lopez was giving Pavlik a good bout throughout.
Alvarado vs. Narh Results
The Mike Alvarado vs. Ray Narh bout got off to a potentially good start, but was over before anything had the chance to happen. Narh had a strong round 1, but Alvarado turned it on the second and hurt Narh on a few occasions. After Alvarado had his way in the 3rd, Narh quit in between the 3rd and 4th, basically just stating he didn’t want to continue and stayed on his stool, to the surprise of the referee, his cornermen and everyone else involved.
Shocking ending, because he wasn’t losing badly or hadn’t been badly hurt, wasn’t busted up, and was a guy saying he wanted to land a big fight… but in any event, surely we’ll see more of Alvarado in the future.
