Joachim Alcine Retains WBA Title

Francois GendronSenior Writer IDecember 8, 2007
 
The Panamanian did everything he could to cash in the biggest opportunity in his career. Mosqueira gave everything he had, trying to keep Alcine in the ropes and hit the WBA champ with combinations.
 
But under Alcine's increased pressure late in the bout, Mosqueria visited the canvas twice in the 12th round. The fight was then stopped by the referree, as the Panamanian seemed unable to defend himself. The TKO was registered at 2:17 of the final round.

Jean Pascal (20-0-0, 14 KOs) was also in action yesterday as he faced Brian Norman (15-6-0, 4 KOs). 
 
Pascal was not in optimal condition as he had aggravated his right shoulder during his last fight. The same problem surfaced again yesterday, as Pascal fought the second half of the fight mainly using his left hand.

The best moment for Norman came in the sixth round when he cornered Pascal and hammered him with a flurry of shots, stunning his undefeated opponent, who was saved only by the bell. Pascal recognized wake-up call and completed the fight the best he could. Pascal's efforts were just enough to win by unanimous decision, the three judges giving the advantage by a score 98-92.
