Shane Mosley: I Want To Win a Title, Make History Again

By Rene Umanzor

Former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KOs), 41-years-old, is looking to turn back the clock on May 18th in Cancun, when he faces 23-year-old Pablo Cesar Cano (26-2-1, 20 KOs) in a welterweight contest. Mosley has not won a fight since 2009, when he stopped Antonio Margarito. Since that time Mosley has gone 0-3-1 in  his last four. He lost decisions to Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul Alvarez. There was a draw with Sergio Mora in 2010.

Mosley retired after last May's defeat to Alvarez, but started making plans for one final run earlier this year. Mosley says this is not a one-fight return, he is planning to stick around for a long time. But a loss to Cano would be the final nail in the coffin of a hall-of-fame career.

"This is a long-term return, I'm coming for a title. I want to be champion again. I want to make history. After Cano I want one more fight and then look for a world championship. I see this fight as a new beginning for me. I have my father back [as trainer]. I guarantee you will be the same Sugar Shane Mosley [of old]. Pablo Cano is very strong, he likes to fight and that's the most important thing. I think the fight will be very good because of the styles and we also have very good chins," Mosley said.

Wow, Shane I want you to look at the expression and sincerity (see also seniority) that you expressed in your desire to hang up your glove after Manny Pacquiao beat you so bad. You barely landed a punch.

Oscar and GBP need to get Shane a position somewhere, pay him something. Help him stay out of the ring. Help him build up his son, but just quit taking new fights. Nobody wants this.

I'm not sure "funny" is the right word...The manner in which he lost his last few fights doesn't bode well for Sugar's return. BUT I'm definitely rooting for him to kick this young guy's ass. We shall see...

Its funny how your on top of your game at one stage and next your washed up and no body wants you around.
