Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, Aug. 29
By Peter Lim
Father time seems to have eroded Mosley and Mayorga equally so both are proportionately older, slower, creakier versions of their former selves. This will simply be a lamer, tamer version of their first encounter. Mayorga's machismo will keep him competitive for the first half of the fight but he will incrementally fade and run out of steam in subsequent rounds. Mosley will pace himself better and stop Mayorga, who appears more exhausted than hurt, in the ninth round.
Mayorga must have held training camp in the rec center of a nursing home for this fight. How did this end up on PPV?
