Shane Mosley Jr. Discusses Latest Win and Future Plans

By Carlos Boogs

This past Saturday night, prospect Shane Mosley Jr. (7-1) won a hard fought majority decision over Roberto Yong in Phoenix, Arizona on his father's undercard.  It was Mosley's first six rounder.

Shane Jr. had a better result than his father, former three division world champion 'Sugar' Shane Mosley, who lost an interim-WBA welterweight title fight to David Avanesyan, and admitted that it was a different experience without his father in his corner giving him instructions.

"It was a little different. My dad would have been in my corner but for the most part everybody else would that was there would have been in my corner except  Roberto (Duran) Jr. Originally Roberto Sr. (who trained Shane Sr.) would have been in my corner but he couldn't be running back and forth. I thought that he did a good job. We were all on the same page leading up to the fight," said Mosley Jr.


The victory was Mosley Jr.'s third of the year and he plans on staying very active regardless of whether or not his father decides to retire or continue on with his career.

"I am going to sit down with my team and see what is next. Yong has been in with a lot of good guys. I believe his record is deceiving when you look at his record.  Look at the guys he's fought. It was a good learning experience. I'm going to go back to the gym with my dad and keep getting better," Mosley Jr. stated.

Mosley has now won five fights in a row since suffering his first career defeat, via close four round split decision to Marchristopher Adkins.
