Boxing News 2014: Shane Mosley to Return to the Ring? Welterweight Wants to Challenge Big Name

By Max Bonto , Christian Post

Boxer "Sugar" Shane Mosley said that he had no desire to return from his boxing career, although he said he might opt to return to the ring only against the best welterweight boxers in the world. Mosley recently turned 43 years old. Mosley last fought almost a year ago on November 2013 against Australian boxer Anthony "The Man" Mundine. The match ended in a loss for Mosley. The former champion boxer said he understimated the size difference between him and Mundine.

"Anthony is 6 ft. and I am 5'9, plus he normally fights two weight classes above me," said Mosley. "When we weighed in we were around the same weight (153lbs), but when we fought he was about 177lbs and I was no more than 159lbs. He used his height to come over the top of me and put his weight on me until my back gave out, so that is not a loss I really feel."

Mosley had also said that his body frame is built for weight classes he has been a champion in, most recently in the welterweight division. If Mosley went up in weight to match Mundine, his performance level wouldn't be nearly as optimal as he was in the welterweight division.

Truly sad... I can't understand how the vast majority of these guys don't take their first few big paydays and set them aside for a rainy day.

For alot of guys its been raining most of their life, and don't have the foresight to set aside for tomorrow what they can spend today.  Or they set the stuff aside on some bad investments.

I have no sympathy for athletes that go broke after making millions. Mosley is a notorious cheater so maybe this is just what he deserves.

Shane's son took his first L here in Phoenix last weekend.  Things aren't looking too bright for the Mosley clan.
