mosley445(Photo credit: Sumio Yamada) Shane Mosley (47-8-1, 39 KO’s) found the fountain of youth on Saturday night in defeating the tough but limited Mexican fighter Pablo Cesar Cano (26-3-1, 20 KO’s) in winning a 12 round unanimous decision by the scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 115-113 at the Grand Oasis Resort, in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Mosley was able to land a lot of his power shots tonight, and he gave Cano constant problems with shots as well as with his jabs. Cano was game and despite fighting poorly, he was able to come back late in the fight to stagger Mosley in the 9th round with a hard right hand.

Mosley-Cano this Saturday, May 18th: Sugar Shane on comeback trail

cano54Still not willing to end his long 20-year pro career, 41-year-old Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KO’s) will be back in this ring this Saturday night against the young 23-year-old powerful but deeply flawed Pablo Cesar Cano (26-2-1, 20 KO’s) in a scheduled 12 round bout at the Grand Oasis Resort in Cancun, Mexico.
