Former three division champion Sugar Shane Mosley was, and still is, a terrific boxer. He has the talent and the skill as well as the veteran smarts owing to his 19 years of experience on the ring. He hasn't won in three years. However, his last TKO victory over a cheating Antonio Margarito will forever be remembered as one of his finest moments in boxing.
Another memorable victory was over the Golden Boy himself Oscar dela Hoya. Many have clamored for his retirement, especially since he's already 40 years old and his last loss to Manny Pacquiao showed how he burned out after the first four rounds and simply back paddled his way through the rest of the fight. Perhaps he has something left to prove which is why he has been pitted against a younger boxer in Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
The current WBC light middleweight champion Saul Alvarez is a young lion, hungry for fame and glory. There were rumors that he was going to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. for Cinco de Mayo. It was Mayweather Jr's spite toward Mexicans to beat Mexican boxers up on such an important Mexican Holiday. That didn't pan out though and so he faces a boxer twice his age and twice the years of professional boxing experience as well. Promoters are trying to sell the fight as the biggest challenge for Alvarez to date.
Both fighters have the same height and reach. Alvarez is a just little bit bulkier. He's also a natural light middle while Mosley is a lightweight who has seen victories as a welter and light middleweight. Alvarez is a good counter puncher, he's as explosive as Miguel Cotto once was. Mosley has faced two of boxing's pound for pound kings in his last three fights. Who will win? Tune in to see.
