In Front of an energetic crowd at the Mecca of boxing, Roy Jones Jr 52-4 (38 KO’s) cruised to a unanimous decision victory over Felix “Tito” Trinidad 42-3 (35 KO’s). Trinidad attempted to start off quickly by aggressively throwing punches at the eight time world champion. Jones rebounded in the second by landing quick clean shots and blocking Trinidad’s punches. Jones began taunting Trinidad during the fourth round and continued to frustrate the pride of Puerto Rico who was still unable to land any clean punches, but made a valiant effort to attack Jones..
After stunning Tito in the sixth round, Jones dropped Trinidad with a picture perfect vintage right hook to the temple. After cruising through rounds 8 and 9, Jones dropped Trinidad with a straight right hand. Jones finished the contest by showing he still has the ability to land clean effective shots while not getting hit in exchange. Scores were 117-109 and 116-110 twice. After the bout Jones expressed his interest in fighting Super Middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe in England.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. kept his perfect record in tact Saturday night by stopping Ricky Hatton in the tenth round of their scheduled twelve round Welterweight Championship fight. The contest was the Main Event of “Undefeated”, which was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and broadcast live from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas by HBO PPV.
Ricky Hatton pressed the fight. He was the aggressor for most of the contest. Floyd Mayweather was forced to fight Hatton’s fight and turned out to be the victor..
With the MGM Grand Arena, packed with singing British fans, both fighters began the fight by going right after each other. It was obvious from the start that Mayweather had the hand and foot speed, but Ricky was a lot quicker than Floyd may have thought. The first round found both fighters landing punches, mostly to the head of each other. Hatton landed a very solid left to the jaw of Mayweather that clearly stunned him. It was a close round.
Again, Hatton came out the aggressor for round two. He was cutting the ring off very nicely and was able to keep Floyd near the ropes or corners, landing punches to both the body and head for most of the round. Hatton landed a solid left on the side of Floyd’s head, sending the Champion backwards, and the only thing that appeared to keep him on his feet was his exceptional balance. Mayweather was counter-punching successfully as Hatton came in throwing his punches, but was only landing one punch at a time, which kept the round in Ricky’s favor. Floyd was also holding a lot and clearly was not fighting “his” fight. This was a very good round for Ricky Hatton.
Floyd Mayweather started round three pedaling away on his bicycle attempting to bring the fight back to his preferred style.......at HIS arm’s length away. He began throwing extremely accurate counter-punches in twos and threes instead of one at a time like the way he did in the first two rounds. Hatton however was going to have nothing of this.
Again, Ricky was able to cut the ring off and keep the round and fight very close. He landed several solid left-right combinations to both the head and body of Mayweather. Towards the end of the round, Mayweather landed back-to-back rights that opened up a cut over Hatton’s right eye. Although this round was very close and honestly could have gone either way, I gave the round to Hatton because I felt he was still the aggressor and landed more punches, and most importantly, the harder ones.
Even though Hatton came out the aggressor for the fourth round, it was Mayweather who began to turn up the heat. As he was being attacked against the ropes, Floyd was able to counter punch very well, landing several left-right-left combinations square on Hatton’s face, forcing the fight into open waters. The more Hatton pressed, the more punches Floyd landed. Mayweather clearly took this round.
The fifth round had Mayweather return to holding. Hatton pressed the fight, attacking Mayweather as he was against the ropes. Floyd was able to counter, but he was back to throwing one punch at a time as Ricky kept throwing punches from all angles, landing most. As Mayweather held, Ricky punched attempting to try and force Floyd to fight and it seemed that every time this happened, Cortez would break them apart. It started to visibly frustrate Ricky.
Hatton continued to batter Mayweather for most of the sixth round. At one point he had Mayweather against the ropes and as he often does, Floyd turned his back as Ricky launched a punch, the result was it (the punch) landed on the back of Mayweather’s head. Referee Joe Cortez immediately jumped in and took a point away from Hatton.
Although he was warning both fighters for holding, never once was either fighter warned about hitting behind the head. This was a close fight and one point was huge. As soon as the round continued, Hatton proceeded to batter Mayweather.
The fight started to change as soon as the seventh round be

In an exciting brawl at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, Ricardo Mayorga, 29-6-1 with 22 KOs scored a majority decision over Fernando Vargas, 26-5 with 22 KOs.
Mayorga started strong in the first round with a wild barrage of punches that kept Vargas on his back foot. As the round progressed Vargas’s legs looked a little shaky and a combination ending with a left hook to the body put Fernando on the canvas. Vargas rose, clear eyed, but his legs still looked wobbly and his punches seemed slow.
In the second round Mayorga again attacked Vargas with winging punches, wobbling him a second time, but Vargas began to measure his opponent. Fernando achieved greater success in the third round, concentrating on overhand rights and raised his hands overhead at the bell, as did Mayorga. But he also suffered a cut over the left eye. Vargas continued to get back in the fight in the fourth round with body shots and that stiff overhand right.
In the fifth round Mayorga concentrated on Vargas’s body, but Vargas was again able to counter with overhand rights. However Mayorga’s greater punch output won him the round.
In the seventh round Mayorga again busted open the cut over Vargas’s left eye. His attack however became more measured, less reckless. As the later rounds continued Ricardo began bouncing on his toes and he took the eighth round. He also landed a right cross after the bell that led to a rather unexpected show of respect at the start of the ninth round when both fighters nodded at each other and touched gloves. That ninth round also turned into one of the most exciting of the fight as Vargas would come on and then Mayorga would come back. Both men raised their hands at the bell and the fight was still very much up for grabs.
Then in the final seconds of the eleventh round Mayorga dropped Vargas with a right hand out of the blue. It was a round that Vargas was winning but in the final analysis of his career it may also come to be yet another measuring stick of both his stature in boxing and of his bravery. Dropped for a second time he did what he always did, he got up, but victory seemed just out of reach. The twelfth round was fought evenly and could have gone either way but by that time those two knockdowns would prove to be the deciding factor.
In a majority decision, the judges voted 113-113, 114-112 and 115-111 for Ricardo Mayorga.
“I fought for my family,” said Mayorga, after the decision was announced. “I worked on the gym, my discipline and control and I was able to do it in this fight.”
“I take nothing against Ricardo,” a quiet, but appreciative Vargas said. “He was a tough guy. I thought he would be wilder. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case. I take nothing away from him. He had a better night. It’s my last fight. Thank you very much.”
