LOS ANGELES - When boxing superstar Sugar Shane Mosley takes his seat at L.A. LIVE's Club Nokia for the October 28 edition of "Fight Night Club" it won't be just as a fan, but also as a father, as his son Shane Mosley Jr. will be competing that night in an amateur bout on the action packed card headlined by Undefeated Gary Russell Jr.'s bout against Guadalupe De Leon.
The 19-year-old Mosley, who will compete in a junior middleweight fight against Ivan Lazaro of Carson, Calif., has already garnered rave reviews for his talent and poise in the ring. Couple that with the experience he has gained as a regular member of his father's training team, and it's easy to see why big things are expected from the younger Mosley in the coming years.
"I'm very proud of Shane Jr. and I know all the hard work he's been putting into his boxing career," said Mosley Sr. "This is a tough sport, but he's got the heart, determination and talent to make it."
"Fight Night Club" is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and AEG and is sponsored by DeWalt Tools, McDonald's, Budweiser, Powerade, LightsLeary.com and USTREAM. The series will return to L.A. LIVE's Club Nokia on November 18.
