I want to go, but I don't wanna pay crazy prices for tix. Anyone know/got any good hookups for this fight?

They've got 25.00$ tix on ticketmaster right now. And for boxing, that's pretty darn cheap. I got 50.00$ tix in the lower bowl last month.

Performance of the ages out of Sugar Shane. Just brilliant. Brought the fight from the opening bell and took it to Margarito. Tony had no answers and was getting killed by those looping rights at every turn.
Sugar Shane was just awesome tonight. He has always been one of my favorite fighters because of his warrior's mentality. Just a fantastic showing by a hall of famer.

I was at the fight!!
I was at game 4, Kings vs Detroit in 2001...I was at game 6, Kings vs Detroit in 2001......but the atmosphere at Staples tonight was unbelievable!! The intensity in the arena rivals any Kings' playoff game. Well worth the 50.00$ spent. My wife went with me, and she was blown away by the crowd. I can only hope that they continue to have huge fights at Staples.
We need an usher update for tonight's fight. 2 huge brawls in the crowd in the section to our right (we were in section 214).
Anyways...Shane Mosley fought a perfect fight. Beat Margarito to the punch and got 'up in his chest' when he wasn't throwing punches. The ref allowed him to hold a little inside. I can only remember 1-2 big punches that Margarito landed. And for him, that's saying something.
All in all, a great night to be a boxing fan in LA. Great night for boxing overall. Boxing isn't dead, and tonight proves it.
Congrats to Sugar Shane on a monumental performance.

I thought before the fight that Margarito would beat Mosley.Boy was I way wrong.Sugar Shane from the start of the fight precise and accurate with his punches. Also,it looked like Mosley was getting stronger as the fight wore on. Congrats to Sugar Shane for a 9th round TKO and will he be fighting Cotto,Williams,or maybe Pacqiuo(sp) in his next fight?.

If Pacquiao vs Mayweather doesn't happen, then I wouldn't be surprised to see Mosley vs Floyd sometime this year. It would have been nice to see Shane call out Floyd tonight. But we'll see.

Looks like a Pacquio/Mayweather fight if Mayweather wins his coming out of retirement fight this July.Couldn't believe it when I read Pacquio KO'd Hatton in the 2nd round. I thought it would be a war lasting more than 2 rounds.

wasn't even a fight, i wanted Hatton to have a good showing but Manny is just too damn good.

Manny just exposed Hatton for the club fighter he is. Awesome performance.
