Promoter Pepe Gomez of Cancun Boxing has announced that a deal was reached for former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KO's) to face Mexico's Pablo Cesar "Homewrecker" Cano (26-2-1, 20 KO's) on May 18th in Cancun, Mexico. The event will take place at the Oasis Hotel and also feature Sergio “Yeyo” Thompson (30-2-0, 28 KO’s) and Ricardo “Rocky” Juárez (29-10-1, 21 KO’s) on the undercard. Televisa and Fox Sports Deportes will televise.
Mosley, 41-years-old, returns for the first time since last May's defeat to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Cano comes back from last year's close split decision loss to WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi. A few weeks ago, Mosley was close to a deal to fight Malignaggi but the fight fell apart due to financial reasons.
