Shane Mosley Jr. Wins Debut: Zepeda, Rodriguez Win

By Carlos Arias

PORT HUENEME --- Super-lightweight Jose Zepeda (20-0, 16 KOs) of La Puente, Calif., who is trained by Robert Alcazar, knocked down Rob Frankel (32-15-1, 6 KOs) of Denver, Colo., with body shots in the third round en route to an 8-round unanmious decision in the "Solo Boxeo" main event. All three judges scored it 80-71 for Zepeda.

Unbeaten super-featherweight Saul Rodriguez (13-0-1, 10 KOs) of Riverside, Calif., who trains with Robert Garcia in Oxnard, scored a brutal fourth-round knockout over Miguel Zamudio (28-4-1, 16 KOs) of Gusave, Mexico, to open the "Solo Boxeo" telecast.

Rodriguez stunned Zamudio with a right hand early in the fourth round and followed up with a barrage of punches that sent him into the ropes. A left hook and right hand connected flush and sent Zamudio crashing to the canvas. He was down for a few scary moments and paramedics were brought into the ring, but he was eventually able to leave the ring on his own. The official time of the stoppage was at 1:09 of the fourth round.

Shane Mosley Jr. of Pomona, the son of future Hall of Famer Shane Mosley Sr., made quick work of Mark Cordova (0-2) of Albuquerque, N.M., in his pro debut, knocking him out with a left hook to the body 34 seconds into the fight on Saturday night at Oceanview Pavilion.

"It was exciting," Mosley Jr. said. "I feel good. I think I should have did some things better. I got in a good shot and got him out of there. If I could have done anything better, I wouldn't have gotten hit at all. I did take some shots for the win, but it was all worth it."

There wasn't much to evaluate because Mosley Jr., 23, who was 37-10 as an amateur, dispatched the overmatched Cordova so quickly. Mosley Jr., who has sparred Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Lucas Matthysse, did eat a couple shots, but he appeared to unfazed as he moved in to finish Cordova.

"It was good," Mosley Sr. said. "He did what he was supposed to do with a guy that he fought and that's how it's supposed to happen in my eyes. Great fight. Great win. That was a left hook to the body. That was a nice body shot. He looked good. We wroked on it and he did what he was supposed to do.

Mosley Jr. said he wasn't surprised by the quick finish.

"You never know," Mosley Jr. said, "but not really. I trained hard. That was a shot that I throw very good and I got him out of there."

Mosley Jr. said it was great to have his father and grandfather, Jack Mosley, working his corner.

"It helps. It gives me confidence," Mosley Jr. said. "It's really helping. And having (cutman) Rudy (Hernandez) too. Rudy is like family."

Mosley Sr. said he plans to keep his son active.

"I want him active," Mosley Sr. said. "This is the first one. He got his foot wet and now we want some more."

Mosley is eager to continue his career.

"I'm looking forward to getting back in there," Mosley Jr. said.

Lightweight Daniel Franco (8-0-2, 5 KOs) of Riverside, Calif., knokced down Cesar Garcia (7-16-1, 4 KOs) of Ensenada, Mexico, with a left hook to the body in the first round and he finished him off with another left hook to the body at 1:54 of the second round.

Light-heavyweight Trevor MCumby (15-0, 12 KOs) of Chicago, Ill., who trains with Robert Garcia in Oxnard, knocked out Rafael Valenzuela (9-3, 1 KO) of Agua Prieta, Mexico, with a combination of body shots at 2:40 of the first round.

Undefeated lightweight Erick De Leon (7-0, 3 KOs) of Detroit. Mich., dropped Jose Gomez (3-7 0 KOs) of Kent, Wash., twice before referee Raul Caiz Jr. stepped in and stopped the fight with 2 seconds left in the first round in the opening bout of the card on Saturday night at Ocean View Pavillion in Port Hueneme.

Super-lightweight Raul Tovar (13-8-1, 4 KOs) of Mission, Tex., rallied in the final three rounds to pull out a 6-round split decision over Herbert Acevedo (11-2, 6 KOs) of Garden City, Kan., who trains at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, in a swing bout. Two of the judges had Tovar winning, 58-56, while the third judge it 58-56 for Acevedo.

Featherweight Erik Ruiz (12-1, 6 KOs) of Oxnard, Calif., dropped Brandon Gushiken (1-2, 1 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico, twice in the second round before the fight was stopped at 2:20 of the second round in a swing bout.

Only one fight and I already don't like the guy. Hitting a hopeless, hapless guy when he is on the canvas???
