Cano is Not Overlooking Mosley Because of His Age

by Miguel Rivera

Former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39KOs), 41-years-old, has not secured a victory since knocking out Antonio Margarito in January of 2009. One Saturday he steps in the ring for his first fight outside of the United States and takes on Pablo Cesar Cano (26-2, 20KOs) for the vacant WBC International welterweight title in Cancun, Mexico.

"First I want to say that Mosley wrote and continues to write his history. But I've come here to write my own. This will be the toughest fight of my career, but am I thinking of losing, or that Mosley is old? I'm not thinking about any of that. [I look at him as] still being in his peak and being one of the biggest names in boxing history. I'm looking for the best Mosley, the one who beat Oscar de la Hoya, and Margarito. This fight is very important to me. I will win and celebrate like I was getting a world title," Cano said.

[QUOTE=NoMoTomatoCans;13382733]I love Shane but truth be told, he can't punch anymore. After round two vs Floyd, he wasn't even punching, he was slapping his fists. Against PAC, he was punching with his hands open. He didnt have any snap on…

Shane Mosley is going to beat Cano's ass and after we're going to have endure another horrendous performance where he just can't pull the trigger against an elite fighter. Possibly Broner. :banghead:

[QUOTE=jray100k;13382202]I think Mosley is ready to get back to business. He needs this win. Because of his last 3 losses, everybody has pulled his retirement card. There are a lot of fighters that Shane can beat. If Malignaggi gets past…
