THE GREAT SHANE MOSLEY IS NOW A MEXICAN B-SIDE :-(
Press Release: Future Hall of Famer Sugar Shane Mosley will return to the boxing ring on Saturday, May 18th against welterweight contender Pablo Cesar "El Demoledor" Cano in a temporary venue which will be set up on the beach in front of The Grand Oasis in Cancun, Mexico. The welterweight fight will air live on Fox Deportes in the United States and on Televisa in Mexico on a delayed basis. Mosley vs. Cano is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Pepe Gomez Promotor Deportivo.
The owner of multiple world titles in the lightweight, welterweight and junior middleweight divisions, Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KO's) has compiled a career resume any fighter would envy. Having scored wins over Oscar De La Hoya, Fernando Vargas, Ricardo Mayorga, Antonio Margarito and Jesse James Leija, Mosley has also shared the ring with the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Winky Wright, Vernion Forrest, Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez. In his most recent fight in May of 2012, Mosley lost a decision to Alvarez, but after a year away from the ring, Sugar Shane is back and ready to face a stern test in Cano.
Cano (25-2-1, 19 KO's) made a big impression on the boxing world when he took a last minute fight with future Hall of Famer Erik "El Terrible" Morales in 2011 in which he went 11 hard rounds before losing to the Mexican superstar. In his 147-pound debut last October he went twelve hard-fought rounds with WBA Welterweight World Champion Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi, scoring an 11th round knockdown before losing a debatable split decision. Undeterred, the 23-year-old Cano has the opportunity to not just get back on a winning track, but to defeat a legend on May 18th.
