At his best, former five-time champion ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley thrilled us time and time again and had an unquestioned reputation for always laying his neck on the line and never shying away from a challenge. The ride that Mosley took us on was full of highs and lows and his ring accomplishments won’t leave one’s mind anytime soon.

But the reality is that the soon-to-be 40-year old has looked very subpar in his last three fights, dating back to his May 2010 drubbing at the hands of Floyd Mayweather, which was followed by a listless majority draw against Sergio Mora and a tepid points loss to Manny Pacquiao a few months back inside the MGM Grand. There has been little coming from Mosley these days, perhaps because he has been enjoying the hefty checked he cashed against Pacquiao, and many had been hoping for him to call it a day.

During this past weekend in Carson, California I caught up with Shane’s manager James Prince and had a brief talk about Mosley’s future and his current roster of clients. Prince confirmed that he has been speaking with Shane and indeed, the Pomona fighter looks to be getting the itch to fight again.

“Yeah, I think he’s going to fight again. It’s just a matter of time. Maybe next year sometime,” stated Prince.

Prince was in the Los Angeles area for the recent Brandon Rios-Urbano Antillon scrap at the Home Depot Center, as he has ties to former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron, who fought and lost on the undercard to overachieving Chicago native Carlos Molina. Prince also works with WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward, former light heavyweight king Chad Dawson, undefeated lightweight Mickey Bey Jr., and former champ Devon Alexander amongst others and he claimed he is looking forward to staying busy and having a long, prosperous career in the sport of boxing.

Of all the athletes Prince has come across, there was nobody quite like Floyd Mayweather Jr., whom he assisted during the early championship days of the superstar’s career. At the time Prince was dividing his time in the music industry as a CEO of Rap-a-Lot Records in Houston, Texas and admits that he was able to learn much from the young star.

“Working with Floyd was just a privilege and an honor to have worked with him,” continued Prince. “I was able to really grasp the business at a rapid pace [from] being involved with Floyd because it was coming in at the top.”

Mayweather would go on to have wildly successful career and is lined up for another huge event with his September 17th date against WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz inside the MGM Grand. Floyd is one of the top two biggest draws in the sport and loves nothing more than pulling in millions of dollars for his efforts inside of the squared circle.

It prompted me to ask Prince how consumed Mayweather was by the pursuit of money during their tenure together.

“I think money is a motivation to all of us. So he always had that go-getting spirit of wanting money and all I could do was add to the foundation that was already laid,” said Prince.

And just as Mosley has always been so adamant about building a great legacy, so too is money a huge reason for him flirting with a return to the ring.

Mosley's Legacy Is 10-Fold Greater Than Mayweather's!
comment by tlarry, on 07-12-2011
Mosley fought everybody, in their prime, multiple times, win, lose, or draw, often going up in weight to fight much larger, stronger Champions than himself. In comparison, Mayweather hand picked his career to fighting nobodies; smaller, one dimensional, lead with your chin, well past their prime,...
