Shane Mosley, Antonio Margarito to fight Jan. 24

Top Rank officials just called to say that the Shane Mosley-Antonio Margarito welterweight fight is scheduled for Jan. 24 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. HBO will televise the bout on its regular premium service rather than pay-per-view.

A spokesman for Top Rank executive Bob Arum said HBO provided some additional money to tempt world welterweight champion Margarito, who last week said he didn't want to be involved in a bout with Pomona's four-time world champion Mosley.

Check back with the Fabulous Forum for details.
