Mayorga decks Vargas Vargas twice for majority decision

Ricardo Mayorga W12 Fernando Vargas: Ricardo Mayorga won a hard-fought majority decision in a battle of former world champions as he sent Fernando Vargas into retirement in front of a near-capacity crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calfiornia. Mayorga scored knockdowns in rounds one and eleven, was the aggressor throughout and deserved the decision. Vargas has nothing to be ashamed of, as he put forth his best effort tonight and never turned down a single challenge during his potential hall of fame career. Official scores were 113-113, 114-112, 115-111 for Mayorga, with the draw seemingly based on sympathy for the retiring Vargas. Source: Showtime PPV
