After watching the Shane Mosley – Sergio Mora fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles this past weekend, I was beyond myself after hearing the judges score-cards. First off, let me say that I believe Sugar Shane should retire. He is not only beyond his prime, but he is unable to fight competitively past four rounds.
Now, for the part of the fight that made me sick to call myself a boxing writer – the outcome. I would like to know what planet Kermit Bayless is from or which fight he was watching when he scored the fight in favor of Mora 115 – 113. There is no possible way anyone in their right mind, who knows anything about scoring a bout, could have possibly given Mora seven rounds – just no way. To be frank, Mora looked more like a marathon runner than a fighter. He was in there just trying to survive. Mora landed 93 – 508 punches. Mosley landed nearly twice that, 161 of 522.
I had the fight scored 117 – 111, ESPN had the fight 117 – 111, other ringside media that I spoke with had the bout for Mosley. I have yet to speak with anyone that thought Mora won the fight. Mr. Latin Snake, do you really think you won the fight? It seemed to me that you were satisfied just surviving against a future Hall-of-Famer.
