Anthony Mundine speaks on bout with Shane Mosley: “I’ve Gotta Be On My A Game”

mundine1Three time world champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (44-5, 26 KOs) spoke with ‘Radio Ringside’ on SEN 1116 in Melbourne, Australia on Monday night to discuss his upcoming bout with future hall of famer “Sugar” Shane Mosley (47-8-1, 39 KOs) later this year.

Since venturing to the United States for the first time in his career last July to take on Bronco McKart, Mundine has made it clear that each fight going forward is to be a major contest.
Since this point he has remained true to his vision, with his first fight after the McKart bout a rematch of his 2009 classic with countryman Daniel Geale, for Geale’s IBF middleweight title. The bout saw Geale victorious via unanimous decision this January, to even the ledger between the two at one apiece. But the defeat hasn’t deterred Mundine’s quest for supremacy and to fight the biggest names possible in the sport, with the announcement of his bout with Mosley last week reaffirming his plans outlined last year.

Shane Mosley vs. Amir Khan on December 7?

khan3334According to Fightnews.com, it looks as though Shane Mosley might be the next in line to face Amir Khan on December 7, 2013. (http://www.fightnews.com/Boxing/boxing-buzz-316-216957)

This is an interesting fight, because it’s hard to tell which fighter is actually supposed to be the better one.

Is Amir Khan the young champion coming to retire Mosley? Maybe, but his losses to Peterson and Garcia expose him as nothing more than an average fighter with luck of the draw in the past. Not only do his losses shade his record, but his recent wins as well. His victory over Carlos Molina was solid, but it wasn’t sensational, and of course his barely pulled of win over Julio Diaz makes it seem like Khan at his young age may be over the hill.

Kell Brook’s “Big Name” In Planned September Fight: Might It Be Mosley?

mosley45445Unbeaten Kell Brook put a frustrating number of months behind him last night in Hull, in stopping tough rival Carson Jones in the 8th-round of a largely one-sided fight. Looking “Special” indeed at times, Brook – who impressed with his left jab and his right hooks to the head – advanced to 30-0(20). Perhaps more importantly, is the “big name” an “excited” Eddie Hearn spoke of having lined up for Brook in Sheffield in his next bout in September.

Already, fans are wondering who this big name will be (Hearn is expected to make announcement this week). Brook’s main goal is of course to fight for and win a world title, but the September bout doesn’t figure to be a title shot. Instead, look for Brook to attempt to bag himself a valuable, statistically impressive win over a “name” and then get his long-awaited shot at world glory. Continue reading

Mosley vs. Malignaggi: Shane sees big things for himself in the future

By Bill Phanco: Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KO’s) thinks the skies the limit for him if he can beat WBA World welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KO’s) on April 27th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Shane Mosley vs. Paulie Malignaggi on Showtime on April 27th

malignaggi24By Bill Phanco: It’s not official. 41-year-old Shane Mosley (46-8-1, 39 KO’s) will be challenging WBA World welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KO’s) on April 27th in a Showtime headliner fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. There a couple of questions that you have to ask about this fight.

First off, how is that that the International Boxing Federation are going to allow Mosley, who isn’t ranked in the top 15 by any of the sanctioning bodies, to fight for a world title? For that matter, Mosley hasn’t won a fight in FOUR YEARS, and he’s being given a world title shot.

The second question is why is Showtime agreeing to televise this fight as a main event to American boxing fans? I don’t think it’s a good product for fans, especially if you signed up for Showtime in the past just to see boxing. Having Malignaggi-Mosley televised is pretty much a waste of time because Mosley isn’t the same fighter he once was and he’s lost three out of his last four fights going into the Malignaggi fight.
