LOS ANGELES, May 17 – As the return of Sugar Shane Mosley approaches, FOX Deportes will celebrate the return of one of the future Hall of Famer on Saturday, May 18, with back-to-back Classics shows that will lead into Mosley’s comeback fight against Mexico’s Pablo Cesar Cano which will be broadcast live on FOX Sports Networks and FOX Deportes from The Grand Oasis in Cancun, Mexico.
At 7:00 pm ET, it’s a trip back to September of 2010, when Mosley squared off against Sergio Mora in a 12-round battle of former champions fighting their way back to the top. Then at 8:00 pm ET, it’s the Classics premiere of Mosley’s February 2006 win over “Ferocious” Fernando Vargas.
All of this action leads up to the live FOX Sports Networks (9:30 p.m. ET) and FOX Deportes (9:00 p.m. ET) telecasts from Cancun headlined by the welterweight battle between Mosley and Cano.

After 12 rounds, a draw verdict was rendered in the bout.
Two of the most popular fighters of this era, Mosley and Vargas battled it out for Southern California bragging rights at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on February 25, 2006.
