In the aftermath of his sixth round TKO of Ricardo Mayorga, 'Sugar' Shane Mosley made it clear that he was going to continue to fight and that his promotional company, GoBox Promotions, would keep doing business even after his career ends, eventually.
"Of course, of course, I started GoBox with this fight right here and it was a great success and I want to continue with GoBox, getting fighters and looking out for the fighters," said the 43-year old Mosley, who raised his record to 48-9-1(40 KO's) on Saturday night at the Forum.
Mosley, who at one time was a former shareholder in Golden Boy Promotions, says he financed this event himself faced steep odds in this promotion given that there was a competing show on the same night at the Staples Center featuring the crosstown rivalry between Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares on a card that was televised nationally on ESPN. Mosley-Mayorga was a pay-per-view card.
