23-year-old Pablo Cesar Cano has a big opportunity to add a victory over a hall-of-famer to his record. On May 18th in Cancun, he will face former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley. For Mosley, (46-8-1, 39 KOs), 41-years-old, it is a new start to return to his winning ways - with Cano (26-2-1, 20 KOs) being lined up as the first victim.
In the last two years, Cano will involved in two grueling fights, against Erik Morales and Paulie Malignaggi, where he gained valuable experience. He now feels sharper, stronger and far more capable of dealing with an experienced opponent like Mosley.
"It's a great opportunity to beat a legend like Shane Mosley. It is a challenge for me. No one has ever knocked him out, and I would like to be the first. I know it will be difficult. But I'm not focused on a knockout, I'm focused on winning. When I fought Erik Morales I was young and had very little experience. Later on with Paul Malignaggi I was stronger, better prepared and I think I won the fight even though the judges gave it to him. So the third time's the charm, and this is my chance," said Cano.
