Undefeated Shane Mosley jumps two weight classes to 147 pounds and takes on tough veteran Wilfredo Rivera. Mosley starts strong, letting Rivera taste his power in the opening round, but Rivera withstands the storm and lands some hard shots of his own in the second. With Mosley seemingly tiring in the middle rounds, Rivera takes advantage, tightening the fight up on the scorecards; however, Mosley lights him up just before the bell to end the ninth. In the tenth and final round, Mosley closes the show, hurting Rivera with a right hand and toppling him with an uppercut. Rivera rolls over and tries to get up, but Referee Robert Byrd can see he is in no shape to continue and stops the fight.
