Shane Mosley Returns With Another Dose of Sugar


So “Sugar” Shane Mosley is back in the mix. What does this mean for boxing? Not really much. Unless he wins in extraordinary fashion, but even that might not be enough to land him a fight of significant value.

Shane Mosley back out of retirement to satisfy his boxing passion. When you love something so much it is hard to call it quits. Can’t just walk away from the game, especially when you are a living legend. Can not quit on a sour note. Got to retire at least on a win. That would be sweet. Now “Sugar” Shane is back officially to serve up another dose of “sweet” boxing.

His opponent is Pablo Cesar Cano (26-2-1). Cano is a tough scrapper who came up short, losing by split  decision to Paul Malignaggi. Cano won some fans that night despite his loss, some felt Cano lost due to Malignaggi being the hometown favorite.

Now a matchup between Mosley and Cano will be interesting and yes I will be tuned in that night. Does Mosley have one more does of sugar to be served? Or is it time for Pablo Cano to prove he is tough enough to take on the big dogs of the welterweight division?

Shane Mosley’s last four fights had been anything but sweet. Mosely is 0-3-1 in his last 4 bouts. In his defense, two of those losses came from men who were battling for pound for pound supremacy, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. The other loss was to a possible future pound for pound king, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. I can’t back up Mosely on the draw to Sergio Mora.

Shane Mosley will face Pablo Cano on May 18, 2013 at the Grand Oasis Resort, Cancun, Mexico. The fight will be televised on Fox Deportes. Tune in to see if another dose of sugar will be served.
