“Sugar” Shane Mosley Stops Fernando Vargas

Mosley used his killer speed and dropped Fernando in the 6th and didn’t let him out of the round as he scored a TKO at 2:38. Vargas may have been bothered by the weight, as he gained 14 pounds (weigh in-154, unofficial fight night weight-168)in 1 day…not a smart move when you are giving away a lot of speed to begin with.

Fernando is a proud and tough warrior, but despite some good performances he has never seemed to recover (mostly in the chin) since his fight with Felix Trinidad. Mosely, on the other hand, who appeared to win every round of the fight hand is still a threat.

There aren’t too many people who can match Shane’s speed. Everyone has been calling for Mayweather vs. a bunch of tough, but much slower guys…. how’s about Mayweather-Mosley?

Interesting matchup. Golden Boy’s Mosley is the ideal replacement for Oscar in the megafight with Floyd. While its no where near as big of a fight as it would have been with the Golden boy himself it can be a very interesting fight.
