Javier Mora knows it won't always be so easy--a knockout in only 74 seconds. But the Westminster heavyweight didn't care that his opponent was winless in four fights or that he outweighed him by 50 pounds. He was simply happy to have his professional debut behind him. It took only two hard body shots for Mora to stop Tom Allen of Mesa, Ariz., Thursday night at the Arrowhead Pond before 3,465.

Had he accepted a generous offer from the Mexican Olympic Federation, Mora could be in Tampa, Fla., fighting to represent his father's country at the Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
