Floyd Mayweather Jr. 14-0 (12 KOs) vs. Miguel Melo 8-1 (6 KOs)
Melo, who took the fight on two weeks notice, had not fought since dropping a decision ten months earlier to Richard Kiley 8-1-3 (3 KOs).
This was the final fight of Melo's professional career.
The main event was Yori Boy Campas vs. Anthony Stephens for the IBF junior middleweight title, which was televised live in primetime on the Fox network. The card aired opposite the Oscars and was hosted by Oscar De La Hoya. It was called "Oscar's Night at the Fights."
Mayweather vs. Melo aired tape-delayed after Campas stopped Stephens in three rounds.

A knockdown was ruled in the second round as Mayweather pressed down on the back of Melo's head and landed two rights to the body. He was up at the count of two and protested the knockdown ruling. After taking the mandatory eight-count, Melo came forward, feinted with a right hand and threw a huge left hook that snapped back the head of Mayweather. By the end of the round, both men were bleeding from the nose.
A right uppercut followed by a left hook put Melo down at 2:22 of the third round. He got to his feet at the count of three and informed referee Steve Smoger that he did not want to continue.
