9 October 1976 Conteh vs Lopez(video)

"John Conteh of Britain retained his WBC version of the world light heavyweight title Saturday after an absence from the ring of 15 months by outpointing Alvaro Lopez, a Mexican-born American, at the Forum. After four solid opening rounds, Conteh found the challenger swarming over him in the 5th while in the 6th, one of the toughest in the fight, Conteh produced some superb left hooks to the head and then the body, but Lopez was back as strong as ever in the 7th trying to find a way to victory with his left jabbing. Most of the rounds were won or lost narrowly, usually in a burst of jabs by Conteh which tipped the balance against the indecisive shots of the challenger. In the 11th round Lopez suffered a cut over his left eye and the sight of blood only added to Conteh's incentive. Conteh, though, was running out of energy and he cleverly spun out his resources over the remaining rounds picking off his challenger with those left jabs, emphasizing again his class." -United Press International

27 September 2008 Shane Mosley KOs Ricardo Mayorga(video)

During the first three rounds of the bout, the harder puncher appeared to be Mayorga, who repeatedly landed right hands from long range and roughed up Mosley in close. Mayorga’s roughhousing mixed with his usual showboating antics seemed to bother Mosley, who appeared more uncomfortable and agitated than usual. In recklessly lunging in with wild power shots of his own Mosley wound up either falling into more clinches or getting caught with punches he should have avoided. Mosley settled down and found the proper distance in the fourth round and took the next three rounds by timing Mayorga with overhand rights that landed flush and occasionally following up with short hooks and single body shots. Mosley continued to zero in with right hands in the seventh and eighth rounds. Mosley was able to land single power shots in the late rounds, but he threw very few combinations. At times Mayorga beat Mosley to the punch with lead right hands. Near the end of the eleventh round, Mosley landed a right hand that splattered blood from Mayorga’s mouth. With less than a minute left in the bout, put Mayorga down on his hands and knees. Mayorga got up on unsteady legs; Mosley stepped in with a short, lead left hook that put Mayorga flat on his back at the bell, resulting in the referee waving the bout off.
