I’d be at fights like this one. I don’t do pay-per-view, so i am always late watching boxing. It never matters, boxing gets so little press, I haven’t once had a fight spoiled for me. Anyway, I was looking forward to this one, as Shane Mosley was a 4-1 underdog, against Antonio Margarito, and i knew that was whack.
From the beginning, Margarito was flat-footed. He was seldom the aggressor in the fight, and though he has a tendency to start late, Mosley’s jab, and his combinations had Margarito covering all night. He never mounted any kind of comeback. Mosley and i have issues (nuthin that I would fight him over) about the way he handled firing his dad, but damn, he looked great in this fight. He is in the middle of a divorce, too, but looked focused and determined, and, well, Margarito was lucky to get out without serious injury.
Great fight. Some day, I’m going to one these, and I’ll get shit-faced and pick a fight with Mark Wahlberg. Call me a 40-1 underdog in that one….
