Mosley stops Vargas!

Saturday, February 25 2006

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

In a crossroads battle between former champions, Shane Mosley (42-4, 36 KOs) was able to shut the left eye of Fernando Vargas (26-3, 22 KOs) convincing referee Joe Cortez waved off a close fight in round ten on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Mosley's edge in speed was evident early on, causing Vargas left eye to quickly swell. Vargas, the natural 154-pounder was able to rough up Shane and land effectively to the body and with right hands to the head. The swelling over Vargas' left optic became grotesque as Mosley continued to hone in on the damage. Strangely, Vargas and his corner never seemed to sense the possibility that the fight was on the verge of being stopped and Fernando never tried to go all out for the KO. With Fernando's eye completely shut in the tenth, Cortez waved it off at 1:22 of the round. Mosley was ahead 86-85 on two cards while Vargas was up 86-85 on the other at the time of the stoppage. According to the Nevada Athletic Commission's Marc Ratner, the reason for the early stoppage was not Fernando's eye being closed, but because in Cortez' estimation Vargas was unable to defend against Mosley's right hand. After the fight, Mosley mentioned Floyd Mayweather as the fighter he's targeting. Vargas said he felt the bout was stopped prematurely and indicated that he plans to continue his career.

In a bout switched to a non-title affair when Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson (44-5, 28 KOs) was unable to make weight, WBO bantamweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (31-4, 27 KOs) scored an eighth round knockout. Gonzalez, who is normally "Mr. Excitement," took a few rounds to figure out the crafty former three-time champion Johnson, but then things opened up in round four when Gonzalez dropped Johnson with a straight right. Gonzalez continued the pressure and dropped Johnson for the count at 1:08 of round eight.
Awkward heavyweight Zuri Lawrence (20-11-4, 0 KO) is a difficult fighter to look good against, as Calvin Brock (28-0, 22 KOs) discovered for the most part of six rounds. That is until Brock connected with a huge left hook and knocked Lawrence out cold. Lawrence was down for several minutes. Time was 2:58 of round six.
Unbeaten welterweight star Joel Julio (27-0, 24 KOs) scored an impressive second round TKO over Wilmer Mejia (11-11-1). Julio floored Mejia in both the first and second rounds, after which Mejia claimed a hand injury and the fight was stopped.
Fernando Vargas' Colonia stablemate junior welterweight Daniel Cervantes (9-0-1, O KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Derrick Moon (11-11-1, 2 KOs).
An attractive jr welterweight bout between Dorin Spivey and Wilfredo Negron fell through when Negron pulled out with an injury. In its place, a bout originally scheduled for the Telefutura show the previous evening was pushed back a day. In that bout, middleweight Tomas Padron (2-2-2, 1 KO) scored a second round TKO over DeShaun Cohen.
