Vicente Mosquera, 33-2-1-(18), forced Cosme “El Chino” Rivera, 35-17-3-(24), to retire at the end of the sixth round of a welterweight bout at the Kissimmee Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida on Friday.
Rivera, who took the fight at just 24 hours notice, was never really in the fight after the third round. After the fight Mosquera said he is now hoping to challenge Danny Garcia for the WBC and WBA light welterweight crowns.
Mosquera was to have faced Joan Guzman for the WBA light welterweight interim title, but Guzman weighed in eight pounds over the agreed weight limit
