2001-07-21 Shane Mosley w rsc 3 Adrian Stone, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Jay Nady. Starting fast, the challenger went forward with the jab trying to take Mosley (147) out of his stride and for two rounds it worked. Although those sessions were given to Mosley his work wasn’t of the standard expected and he missed with far too many punches as Stone (147), pressing forward, went for the body. However, the third round saw Mosley beginning to move better and despite hurting Stone to the body he bided his time, waiting for the opportunity to strike rather than punching away at his opponent who was moving from side to side and showing a high guard. Eventually measuring Stone with lefts, Mosley banged in three rights to the top of the head and when the target opened up he cracked in a fast left hook-right to the jaw that sent the Englishman crashing. Not bothering to pick up the count, the referee called the fight off on the 2.01 mark so that Stone, out cold, could be attended to as quickly as possible.
