Default Is Shane Mosley worth of the "Sugar" moniker?

Simple question...






I know you have rejects here and there, but seriously in comparison to Sugar Ray Robinson and Sugar Ray Leonard, has Shane lived up to the name?

I don't think last week did him any justice....

He does have some good wins Delahoya (2), Margarito, Vargas (2)...

He lost to some great competition....

But...he also had that BALCO situation....


What's your take??

Shane was a great fighter especially at the lighter weights, but IMO he was never a sugar type fighter.

If Ray Robinson gave Shane his blessing then that is good enough for me.

Shane's a very good fighter. He's just not great though. VERY Overrated. Even at LW they were saying he was just as good as Duran, which is false.

IMO if a fighter uses "Sugar" as there nickname and doesn't even come close to the greatness of Robinson or Leonard, than they don't deserve it. Period. It's an insult to those 2 ATGs.

i always thought shane was the worst sugar compared to the previous two that came before him. either way, he was a good fighter in his prime who was given the name by them, so you can't take that away for him. it's hard to live up to srl and srr.
