Its all about the promotion. Got's to pull in those mexican fans!

Kinda racist.

Something I noticed about this event and UFC 121 is they have similar promoting strategies... for Mosley-Mora they talked about how Mosley hasn't lost to a mexican and for the UFC 121 trailer I seen they were talking about how there hasn't been a mexican heavyweight champion before.

I did Kev, thanks for the call out. I ended up going to a cousins party late and they had the fight on and they said it sucked. I caught the last few rounds and they were right, but they said the same as you.

The undercards were great!

Trying to decide if I can get off enough on this to watch The PPV. Absoultely nothing to do tonight.

Hope you saved your money Krav. The undercard was good though.

Shane getting back into the ring on Saturday, here´s a quick rundown by ESB.

“STAPLES Center and AEG are incredibly excited about bringing the Mosley vs. Mora fight to Los Angeles,” said Lee Zeidman, STAPLES Center General Manager. “We look forward to what is sure to be a great night of boxing and to host the main bout which includes two local grown fighters in Shane and Sergio, both of whom have had memorable victories in their careers here at STAPLES Center and September 18 will be a night that more boxing history will be made.”

A future Hall of Famer who is undefeated in two bouts at STAPLES Center against Oscar de la Hoya and Antonio Margarito, Sugar Shane Mosley (46-6, 39 KO’s) returns to his Southern California backyard for the first time since his dominating ninth round knockout performance against then Welterweight World Champion Margarito in January of 2009. A future Hall of Famer, Mosley has already earned six world titles ruling the lightweight, welterweight and junior middleweight divisions over his storied 16-year career. He has defeated the likes of De La Hoya, Fernando Vargas (twice), Luis Collazo, Ricardo Mayorga and Margarito. Looking to put his recent loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May of this year behind him in short order, Mosley returns quickly to action as he continues to take on every challenge the sport has to offer. On September 18, his challenge will be turning back the extremely hungry and talented Sergio Mora.

East LA’s own former Junior Middleweight World Champion Sergio Mora (22-1-1, 6 KO’s) last fought at STAPLES Center in 2005 when he scored a thrilling split decision victory over Peter Manfredo in a rematch of his final bout championship win of the first season of the reality series “The Contender” during which Mora became a household name to millions of fans. Going unbeaten in his next four fights, Mora began to rapidly climb the junior middleweight ranks, eventually earning a shot at the junior middleweight world title held by the late Vernon Forrest in June of 2008. Mora seized the opportunity and won the title via majority decision, but would lose a close decision to Forrest in a rematch three months later. Mora returned to the ring in April of this year and defeated hard-hitting Calvin Green with an impressive seventh round knockout. He now looks to take down a legend in Sugar Shane Mosley and become the first fighter of Mexican descent to defeat the future Hall of Famer.
