Shane Mosley is Stripped, Senchenko Full WBA Champ

By Hilmar Rojas

The WBA has stripped Shane Mosley of the their welterweight title. Mosley was recognized as the WBA's "super" welterweight champion. Vyacheslav Senchenko (30-0, 20KOs) of Ukraine was the WBA's "regular" champion at the weight and will now be recognized as the full title-holder at 147-pounds. Senchenko defends his title against Charlie Jose Navarro on August 30 in Ukraine.

The WBA stripped Mosley because they never agreed on the terms for his May 1 bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr., who refused to pay the sanctioning fees to fight for Mosley's WBA title. Mosley went forward without reaching a deal with the WBA and was dominated in a twelve round decision loss. The WBA sent Mosley a letter wishing him luck in the future and they hope he can fight for one of their titles down the line.
