You want to know why Shane Mosley still wants to fight?
Just look at the pictures above at his girlfriend Bella Gonzales, if you want to keep a woman like that you need some extra cash. Add on to the fact his ex wife took the majority of his money (and title belts) in their divorce, Shane needs to keep some income in.
Then, there is just the fact that boxers never retire they are like Jason Voorhees.
The last time we saw Mosley, he was knocked down in the third round and lost a shutout decision to Manny Pacquiao in their massively hyped — and even more disappointing — welterweight title bout last May.
Since then, Mosley (46-7-1, 39 KOs) has kept a low profile. But now he says he is ready to return, that he is healthy and that his manager, James Prince, and attorney, Josh Dubin, have been approached by Golden Boy — the fighter’s former promoter before their falling out prior to rival Top Rank signing Mosley for the Pacquiao fight — to gauge his interest in two potential bouts.
I talked to Mosley the other day, and he said he was asked a couple of weeks ago about his interest in a fight with junior middleweight titlist Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who holds one of Mosley’s old belts. In recent days, Mosley said, he was asked about his interest in facing former junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan.
I doubt we see him against Khan and the only way Alvarez happens is if he doesn’t get a fight with Floyd Mayweather. What Shane will probably have to do is take a smaller fight first and then hope for a bigger fight in the fall.
