Sugar Shane Mosley Defies Time and TKOs Margarito

Sugar Shane Mosley's rights proved to be too much for Antonio Margarito as the American pounded the Mexican into submission in the ninth round of their WBA Welterweight Championship match up in Staples Center, Los Angeles, USA. Ever since Mosley's rights connected to Margarito in the first round - it continued on until the devastating fourth with several rights found its way to the Mexican. It seems Mosley heard the pre-fight criticism and came out swinging. Margarito was game in the first round. But as the match progressed it was clear Sugar Shane Mosley is too fast for Antonio Margarito. But just as in the Cotto fight - Margarito was relentless constantly pushing forward only to receive Mosley's punishing rights. The end began in the ninth round as Shane Mosley's combinations made Margarito look awful and the referee saw enough and stopped the fight leaving the largely pro-Mexican crowd shocked with the result.
