Mosley Jr. defeats Miracle Man Jacobs

Super middleweight Shane Mosley Jr. (22-4, 12 KOs) took a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over two-time world champion Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (37-4, 30 KOs) on Saturday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Mosley pulled away to a 99-91, 99-91, 100-90 nod against the 37-year-old Jacobs, who appeared to have lost a step.

Unbeaten lightweight Amado “AFV” Vargas (11-0, 5 KOs), son of former champion Fernando Vargas, scored a sixth round TKO against Sean Garcia (7-1-1, 2 KOs), brother of Ryan Garcia. Garcia came in three pounds heavy, but when not showboating Vargas won every minute of every round, dropping Garcia in round four with an uppercut. Ryan Garcia was removed from ringside by security.

Teenage lightweight prospect Curmel Moton (4-0, 3 KOs) kept his unbeaten record intact with a dominating stoppage of Nikolai Buzolin (9-9-1, 5 KOs) as he dropped his opponent in round one before stopping him in the second round of their super lightweight matchup.

The main event was a boxing match betwen longtime MMA rivals as Nate Diaz took home a majority decision victory over Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal. The event attracted a sold out crowd of 18,040.

  • Daniel Jacobs, you’ve had a wonderful career and you’ve accomplished more in the ring than most fighters could ever dream. More importantly, you’re a champion in life. There’s so much you can do…trainer, commentator, promoter, motivational speaker, and many other things I’m not aware of you’re good at and that’ll make you happy. But please don’t fight again because you just don’t have it anymore in the ring. There’s nothing left to prove.

    • I’ve followed some of Jacobs career and the guy is great! I didn’t see the fight, seems like he had an off night, you’re just going to tell the guy to retire? When Ravens punish the chiefs in Week 1 are you going to tell Maholmes to retire? At least offer the fight everybody wants against Jake Paul if he should retire.

      • You didn’t see the fight. Not trying to be rude but to be honest you should have stopped there. He looked old and slow and if I’m being honest he hasn’t looked particularly good in last few fights. Age and inactivity hasn’t done him any good. If he can’t even be competitive with a fighter like SM Jr, who is too small for the weight class, he has no chance with a top 10 SMW. IF he decides to have one more maybe someone like Anthony Dirrell would be an option but I wouldn’t favor him in that fight either.

  • sean garcia didn’t look focused even before the fight and then came 3 pounds overweight. it was a bad week for the garcia family.

  • wow the circus continues its crazy to think has been MMA fighters made more money than real boxers on a boxing card
    Jacobs just needed a payday Mosley Jr is NOTHING like his father just better than a Home Depot worker
    Thug wanna be Vargas beat up wanna be fighter lil hype Sean good go play stupid games
    over Mayweather hyped Carmel Mouton fought another full time Janitor ok cool nothing specil to see here
    and pothead Diaz barely outslugged backyard brawler Masvidal actually waaaay better than the Shakira Stevenson pillow fight….

    to all fighters on this card all of you were way overpaid so be thankful merry early christmas

    • Gotta agree with about everything historian. Mouton still has a long way to go before we can say he is over hyped, in my opinion. I think the jury will be out awhile on him because of his age. Mosely is nothing special, but an average fighter. If Jacobs was looking for a pay day, he was actually one of lowest paid on the main card. 100000k, but lost 20 percent being overweight. I only watched that fight actually fell asleep after I think the fifth or sixth round on YouTube. I don’t watch MMA fighters box, it’s worthless. A sold out show tells me that this generation of boxing fans are more about the drama and lead up then the actual fight.

    • You seem to have a lot of hate in you. Mouten is 18 years old and has only had 4 fights. Who do you think he should be fighting??? Comparing Mosley to a Home Depot worker? He’s probably a top 15 or 20ish type of fighter. The Vargas/Garcia fight was actually a good fight especially considering that they were both undefeated and in an early stage of their career. We need MORE young fighters doing this.
      Lastly as for the main event, I don’t watch MMA so I don’t know much about either of them, but I will say that if they can fill an arena (which they did) then they’ve earned the money they’ve generated. Not to mention they also drew attention for the other fighters on the card, which is a positive. To put in perspective, they sold more tickets than Teo and Shakur did and the fight was more competitive.

  • Another Garcia family member cheating the system – %%^£!!!

    I hope the Garcia brothers do not have the same trainer or maybe the Garcia brothers have the same mentality of being stubborn and/or entitled. I am glad this cheater lost.

    I do not like this slight increase of fighters showing up grossly overweight because it is telling me that a fighter has serious mental doubts about defeating an opponent in a fair manner.

    • It’s unprofessional, simple as that then again it’s the sign of the times, youngsters do not take their craft seriously. This behavior is throughout the business/professional world. Like we should be just happy they showed up. Shaking my fkn head.

      • they want the power without the responsibility . then the excuses follow right after that ……… — Its sad and disappointing .

  • I was hoping Daniel was going to win. It is time to end a stellar career.
    You are one of my favorite fighter in and out of the ring

  • I thought this would be a more competitive fight, and was somewhat surprised by Mosley Jr’s dominance. Jacobs really has fallen off. He had a good run, but now it appears to be time for him to retire. Wonder what’s next for Mosley Jr? Hadn’t heard much from him before this fight.

  • A Garcia NOT making weight is somehow not becoming surprising. Cheating is their way apparently.

  • I’m a big Jacob’s fan, but I wonder what he was thinking about taking this fight after such a long layoff. Do I feel he can still fight ? Yes, I do but you’ve got to stay active… he’s still got alot left in the tank. Rededicate yourself to the sport and fight on…

  • Interesting that fightnews reported the Diaz- Masvidal weigh-ins but not the actual results.
