Last thursday afternoon, former three-division champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley held a media workout at Barry's Boxing Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada, as he gears up for his August 29 pay-per-view showdown against former two-division champion Ricardo Mayorga, which takes place at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
"This fight is to prove I am back," Mosley said. "I took some time off to heal some nagging injuries that I had but I stayed in the gym and stayed in shaped. I think I can fight another three-four years. I don't know if I can go on till I am 50 like Bernard [Hopkins] but I think I have a lot of fight left in me.
"The goal is still to have rematches against Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez. I want to avenge those losses."
In 2008, Mosley was leading Mayorga on two of three scorecards heading into the twelfth round of a hotly contested battle. Rather than leave the decision to the judges, Mosley stopped Mayorga with one second left.
The stars will be out at The Forum with former four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, Hall of Fame inductees "Sugar" Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson, middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, plus former champions Shawn Porter, Victor Ortiz and Sergio Mora, all confirmed to be in attendance.
Comic icon George Lopez, rap legend MC Hammer and several other stars will also be in the building at what undoubtedly will be the biggest fight in Southern California this summer.
Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com and start at $35.00. The pay-per-view will will be available on all major satellite and cable systems for $49.95.
