Line 1: Line 1:
1998-09-22 [[Shane Mosley]] w rsc 5 [[Eduardo Morales]], MSG Theatre, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Arthur Mercante Jr. Always in control apart from when he was stung by a left hook in the first, the champion started well with the left jab and the occasional right before slamming punches into Morales (134), one of which dropped him on one knee for a count of ‘six’ in the third. Patiently waiting another opportunity, Mosley (135) dictated the fourth prior to stepping up a gear in the fifth to floor Morales with a solid right to the head. On getting up Morales was quickly pinned in a corner as Mosley rained in punches and with nothing coming back the referee pulled the Argentinian out on the 2.03 mark to save him from taking further punishment.
