Shane Mosley interview

By Vitali Shaposhnikov: After his lackluster performance against Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2) in May, most people expected and hoped for Shane Mosley (46-7-1) to retire from the sport of boxing. Despite being a tremendous fighter and a living legend, Shane looked old and uninterested in fighting the younger and obviously stronger Pacquiao.

Just a few weeks ago I spoke with Shane Mosley about his future in boxing, and got some answers to our question of whether he will fight again.

“Yea I’ll definitely be back. I got to fight a couple of more times, I still got it in my blood,” said Mosley to me when asked whether his fans should expect to see him back in action anytime soon if ever. Not only is Shane planning a comeback fight, but is poised to stick around for a few more. He threw out a couple of names as next possible opponents, such as the winner of Antonio Margarito (38-7-0) vs. Miguel Cotto (36-2-0), and also mentioned Andre Berto (28-1-0).

Another very interesting thing that I have learned from Shane in our conversation is that he is extremely serious in having his son continue his legacy in the sport: “Hopefully I can let my son take over. I’m trying to get him ready.”

There are always sons trying to take over after their fathers retire from boxing, thus it’s not uncommon to hear such news. Still, I am very curious to see how Shane’s son performs, and whether his fighting style will remind us of his father’s.
