Pacquiao Vs. Mosley Results: Mike Alvarado Forces "Sugar" Ray Narh To Quit After Three

The Showtime pay-per-view broadcast for the bout between Manny Pacquiao and "Sugar" Shane Mosley kicked off with a bout between "Sugar" Ray Narh (25-1, 21 KO) and Mike Alvarado (29-0, 21 KO) for the WBC Continental Americas Light Welterweight Championship.

Narh looked to use his height as the fight started to neutralize the aggression of Alvarado. The strategy of Narh kept Alvarado from really unloading with shots until the opening round was almost at a close. The second round saw the same strategy by Narh of using his speed and length but Alvarado started to land his counter shots and find space to hit Narh with power that was clearly affecting "Sugar" Ray.

Heading into round three it appeared that the fight was even at a round a piece, but Narh fought the round much more aware of Alvarado's power and off his heels while Alvarado came forward throwing hard.

Between rounds Ray Narh quit on the stool after the ref asked him if he wanted to keep fighting or not. Narh and his camp answered with "no" and the fight was stopped.

Hard to fault Alvarado for landing hard punches in the 2nd and 3rd rounds but Narh entered 25-1 and quit on the stool after three rounds on a massive pay-per-view, not exactly something that will be easy to bounce back from in his career.

Update: Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports tweets:

Dr. William Berliner said Nahr has been vomiting and had diarrhea since yesterday and had no strength. That's why he quit.
