Mosley-Mayorga Rematch Set: Shane Vows Brutal KO!

By Ryan Burton

The legend is back.  Future Hall of Famer "Sugar" Shane Mosley (47-9-1) has advised that he will return to the ring on August 29th in Los Angeles, California against former rival Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (31-8-1). The fight is contracted for a weight of 154 pounds.

Mosley and Mayorga fought a very close pitched bout back in 2008, with Mosley securing a knockout in the closing seconds of the twelfth and final round. Going into the final round, the fight was a close split decision in favor of Mosley n the official cards.

The fight will be Mosley's first since losing to Anthony Mundine in 2013.  Mayorga last fought in December when he stopped Andrik Saralegui in Nicaragua.

Mosley has been very vocal recently on Twitter and other social media outlets and said that he is coming back because of his love of the sport and also to see how the fans react to the more vocal and aggressive Mosley.

"I want to remind the world why they love boxing. Two men leaving it all in the ring. No fear. No holding back. No games. Just fighting with all of our heart. It's about the glory.

"This is going to be fun. I can't wait to get in there and knock his ass out. Quiet Shane is gone. Let's see how people like this version of Shane," Mosley told

The 43-year-old Mosley said that he has received mostly positive feedback since word of the fight leaked on various social media outlets. Another factor in his decision to return to the ring is the opportunity to fight on the same card as his son, Shane Mosley Jr.

"Surprisingly I have not had but a handful of haters. Mostly everyone is really excited. This is apparently the fight to be at. The fight to see. We are making history. My son and me both getting KO's on the same night. The legacy baby," said Mosley.

The knockout artist didn't mince any words when he vowed that he won't only stop the arrogant Mayorga, but that he will stop him viciously.

"This will be my most brutal KO ever. I have something to prove. I'm pissed. Sugar never gets pissed. I'm not being nice this time. I'm going to surprise some people," Mosley revealed.

Stay tuned for more details to follow in the next few days.
