Mosley Back in the Mix for a Title Shot, Schaefer Says

by David P. Greisman

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer hadn’t yet seen Shane Mosley’s decision win over Pablo Cesar Cano — after all, he had been in Atlantic City for Lucas Matthysse’s knockout of Lamont Peterson and had just finished presiding over the post-fight press conference when a pair of reporters asked him about Mosley-Cano.

While Schaefer said he hadn’t been briefed yet on the bout, but he spoke highly of what the victory meant for Mosley, who is now 41 and nearing ever closer to 42, and who had not won a fight since his January 2009 win over Antonio Margarito.

“This was a real test for Shane. Pablo Cesar Cano is a young, strong guy who gave Paulie Malignaggi all he could handle, and for Shane to go to Mexico and win is the kind of statement I was looking for, for Shane,” Schaefer said. “I think that will put Shane back into the mix. And I think this means that Shane Mosley is back, and I think Shane Mosley deserves another world title shot.

“I’m going to have to sit down with him and the team and see who is going to be available and what we can do,” Schaefer said. “But there’s certainly some good names out there, and I would say about 80 percent of the fighters that matter in the ’40, ’47 and ’54 [140-, 147- and 154-pound divisions] — maybe 90 percent — are promoted by Golden Boy anyway, so it’s going to be easy to get Shane a big fight. That’s a big statement for Shane.”

Maybe the Sugar Man has an undiagnosed case of diabetes, 'cause the undignified old pinchfist seems to be doing a lot of pissing on my memories here. Listen Granddad. The vault in my memory bank that's dedicated to your glory…

41 year old mosely suddenly has a title shot when he has just one win since 2009? I guess that's how boxing works, take an old shot fighter with no chance and throw him in there with a champion.
