Mosley To Leave Naazim, Will Train With His Father

By Luis Sandoval

Reports have been circulating that Sugar Shane Mosley will be fighting current WBA Welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi next year as Mosley will be coming out of retirement for this fight.

Mosley was on hand at the Watson Family Christmas Classic Charity basketball game and though no official announcement has been made, the Malignaggi is the fight Mosley is gearing up for.

One interesting note that Mosley shared was when he does return next year, he will not be training with Naazim Richardson who Mosley has been working with since late 2008. Instead Mosley will be training with his father who Mosley trained with earlier in his career.

“I’m going to train with my father for this fight. Naazim is very good and I have a lot of respect for Naazim and his training work but this time I believe, going into this and coming back its legacy. My father, me, my son, its legacy. It’s something that I believe that has to be done” Mosley would reveal.

Mosley believes he’s coming back for legacy and feels it would only be right to take that path with his father. He assures there is no ill will or any reason in particular that he will not be training under the tutelage of Richardson other than the one stated before.

“It has nothing to do with Naazim not training me right or not. No, he’s done a great job. Worked with me hard and does everything I like in a trainer. Great trainer, great person, great philosopher, he does it all. I believe that legacy overshadows that in me and my father working together and then my son. It has to be done” explained Mosley.
Mosley’s short lived retirement comes to an end the same year he announced it but says he feels physically capable of still competing.

Shane should win this fight but once he does he will be seen as another vulnerable champ. He said he could take Marquez so maybe thats being developed in the pipeline. Id like Shane to have a couple of good…

[QUOTE=MJ406;12828614]It's not Paulie who wants the fight .. apparently Mosley wasn't impressed with Paulie's title defense over Cano and thinks he's easy pickings plus the matchmaker that GoldenBoy stooge Schaefer is also making a big push for Malignaggi-Mosley it's not…
