Leo Santa Cruz just entertained fans in what was easily, the performance of his short career against Abner Mares. Cruz (31-0-1, 17 KO's) took over the fight after the 3rd round and never looked back. Mares (29-2-1, 15 KO's) started off fast but appeared to lose steam in the middle rounds. Cruz for his part, continued to adjust and find different ways to attack Mares throughout the fight. Cruz, having a huge contingence in the crowd, fed off the chants of his name throughout the fight.

In a rematch that nobody was asking for and almost seven years after stopping Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga with one second left in the twelfth round of their first fight, “Sugar” Shane Mosley capped an entertaining toe to toe battle by stopping Mayorga again, this time with one second left in round six with a controversial body shot that put Mayorga down for a full ten count on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Mayorga claimed the blow was low but the referee called it fair.
