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.

[QUOTE=JOM'S]i have to agree with you bro, it is similar to castillo & chico ending each other careers, after their fights they have left something on the ring and imho was never the same...[/QUOTE] They didn't end each other's career. They both were stuck in no man's land after they moved up ...

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 for his finale. Nobody wants to go out on a bad note, but I hope he doesn't get a goodby fight against ...
