Photo Credit: Kenrick Lee/BadCulture.net INGLEWOOD, CA — On Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, Shane Mosley returned to the ring with former foe Ricardo Mayorga. Unlike their first foray into boxing history, the events surrounding this meeting swirled into a veritable circus of face-off fights, scripted disrespect and some all around carnival like festivities. When the fighters finally entered the ring for the “Grudge Match” Mosley emerged the winner, as expected, landing a body shot in the sixth round that left Mayorga down on his knee unable to continue. In case you didn’t have access to the Shane Mosley vs Ricardo Mayorga PPV grudge match on Saturday night, enjoy it here.

INGLEWOOD, CA – The fight that continues to have more drama than tickle sells culminated in action at today’s press conference in Inglewood, the site of Saturday night’s showdown. Attempting to pose the fighters for a stare down, Ricardo Mayorga took the opportunity to test out Mosley’s girlfriend assets. Needless to say, she didn’t take too kindly to the gesture. Staged or no? You be the judge. Whatever the outcome, it got the tongues wagging ahead of their Saturday night PPV fight at the Forum.

Golovkin Claims Next Victim; Defeats Monroe In 6

INGLEWOOD, CA — “I’m gonna fight ’em off; A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back” ~ Seven Nation Army, The White Stripes. Every time Gennady Golovkin enters the ring, it is this song that announces his arrival. For the man across the ring I wonder if this song invokes the same uneasiness a corner boy feels when he hears Farmer In The Dell. Much like Farmer, Seven Nation Army is an announcement, a warning, of impending doom. But instead of being armed with a shotgun, his hands are responsible for the trail of devastation and destruction left behind. A body count, that is now up to thirty-three. On Saturday night in Inglewood Willie Monroe Jr., Glolovkin’s thirty-third victim, lasted…

A Sweet TKO Lifts Roman Gonzalez Over Edgar Sosa

INGLEWOOD — Despite his tasty sounding name, there was nothing sweet about the havoc Roman Gonzalez wrecked on Edgar Sosa Saturday night. In front of a raucous, excited crowd at The Forum in Inglewood, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez outclassed, outgunned and outworked challenger Edgar Sosa of Mexico to retain the WBC flyweight title. Making his American TV debut, Gonzalez lived up to all the expectations that preceded him. In spectacular fashion, Gonzalez wasted no time setting a trap that would ensure Sosa while lobbing minimal, yet strong, punches. Quick and sure-footed, Gonzalez side stepped and cut-off the ring each time Sosa changed directions preparing him like a lamb to the slaughter. Despite being clearly overmatched, Sosa continue to engage in…
