DeMarkus Jones- The sun set on the illustrious, almost 25 year career of Shane Mosley. Here I provide a look back at the boxing life of the Sugarman; a man who experienced it all. Supreme victory, unexpected defeat, a steroid scandal, attempted loaded gloves, and everything in between. Still, we must pay homage to, arguably, one of the best boxers of the last 20 years.
Shane Andre Mosley was a decorated amateur in the local California box scene as well as the national stage. He won many competitions, compiling a stellar record of 250 wins over against just 16 losses. Mosley was favored to go to the 1992 Olympics, however a loss to Vernon Forrest derailed those plans. Undeterred, Mosley turned pro. On February 11th 1993 the world witnessed the pro debut of the man who go on to rule the 135 lb. division like no one else had since Roberto Duran.
