Mosley Upsets Margarito in 9th Round
A crowd of 20,820 fans, the largest in the 10-year history of the Staples Center, watched in awe as Mosley scored a knockout at :23 of the ninth round, capping off a dominating display of hand speed that was surpassed only by the punishment of his power.
Margarito, whose fans clearly outnumbered Mosley's judging from the crowd's response, was able to survive after getting up from a knock down just before the bell rang to end the eighth round.
But Mosley quickly jumped on him again in the ninth, landing a left hook and right hand followed by more of the same until Margarito toppled to the canvas like a lumberjack's handiwork just as his corner threw in the towel.
