Former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-7-1, 39KOs) is training hard for his bout against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs), the WBC's junior middleweight champion. Mosley gets his shot against Alvarez on the "Ring Kings" HBO pay-per-view, with Miguel Cotto defending his WBA 154-pound title in the main event against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mosley, 40-years-old, was once considered to be a pound for pound boxer, but some of his recent defeats have the critics questioning his present abilities.
“The [common thought process] is that a boxer loses his skills with time, but it’s not the case with me. My experience, skills and my knowledge can’t be taken away from me. I’ve fought with several of the best boxers in the world including Oscar de la Hoya and Antonio Margarito. I know that I’m still the same fighter that I was in all of those great fights; my speed and power...I'm stronger than ever. I know what I need to do to win,” Mosley said.
