Photos: Mijares May Have Ended Rafael Marquez's Career

by Rafael Soto

Mexico City, Mexico - A battle of former champions saw Cristian Mijares (47-6-2, 21 KOs) stop Rafael Marquez (41-8, 37 KOs) in the ninth round. After staggering Marquez with a hard bomb in the ninth, Mijares unloaded against the ropes as the referee jumped in to wave off the contest. The 37-year-old Marquez had promised to retire from the sport if he lost the match to Mijares.

Former flyweight champion Edgar Sosa (47-7, 28 KOs) barely had enough in the tank to grab a ten round majority decision over Myung Ho Lee (15-3, 5 KOs). The scores were 96-94, 96-94 and 95-95.

Rafael knew it was over when he backed out of the fight in Puerto Rico. He should have let it go then, or did he think he'd do better and rejuvinate outside of PR. He kept going and Knocked Out…

Rafa was competitive. He wobbled Mijares in the first round. He could have just hugged and stayed out of harm's way but he is the typical Mexican, on attack mode, guts, no hugging. He paid the price but that is…
