The January 24, 2009 welterweight title fight between Antonio Margarito and Shane Mosley is moving from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Top Rank, which is co-promoting the fight with Golden boy announced it will be on the same date at Staples Center. It was originaly scheduled to be at Mandalay Bay. "This isn't so much the economy as it was the timing" Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said. "Its the week before the Super Bowl, and the hotel wasn't sure they could get their big customers to come out two weeks in a row." source: las vegas review-journal
