Does Sergio Mora have a valid argument? Hug fest after Garcia dominates Malignaggi

Does Sergio Mora have a valid argument? Hug fest after Garcia dominates Malignaggi

(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) The co-featured bout at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY wasn’t even minutes old before Daniel Jacobs 29-1-0 caught Sergio Mora with a short counter right. The punch landed on the button as Mora’s head was down and to his left. He had just finished landing a left to Jacob’s right side. It looked like Jacobs was going to have a easy night of it. Mora beat the count but looked a little shook as the referee Gary Rosato signaled for action to resume. Jacobs jumped on Mora with hard shots, but in the process he squared up and left himself open. Mora caught him with a good left hook, and down went Jacobs and up out of their seats came the crowd. Wow! What a beginning!

The first round ended with matching knockdowns, a tough round to score. The second round action had both men throwing a lot of jabs and combinations. The light punching Mora seemed to be holding his own, but it was obvious Jacobs was throwing the harder punches. Soon he had Mora on the run. Mora tried to shift his stance to give Jacobs angles, but his moves were awkward and ineffective. Jacobs was determined to close in and finish the job.

Mora decisions Proksa in ugly fight

mora1Sergio Mora (24-3-2, 7 KO’s) defeated Grzegorz Proksa (29-3, 21 KO’s) tonight by a 10 round unanimous decision in a pot shot fight at the Veteran’s Coliseum, in Jacksonville, Florida. The judges scored it 96-94, 96-94, and 98-92. The 96-94 scores seemed fair. The 98-92 score was out of touch with the reality of the fight.

Mora won, but it was close and it was very ugly because both of these guys were throwing mostly single shots all night. It was a lot of defense, and lot of head movement without a lot of power. Proksa came into the fight with a reputation for being a hard puncher, but he didn’t look very power tonight, and of course neither did Mora.
