Shane Mosley

From Academic Kids

"Sugar" Shane Mosley (born September 7, 1971) is a boxer who has won three world titles and beaten Oscar De La Hoya twice.

After his win versus De La Hoya, Mosley was considered the world's best fighter by boxing magazines. But he then ran a successful string of defenses against lower opposition such as Adrian Stone, and lost twice to Vernon Forrest, both times for the world title he had won against De La Hoya.

On February 8, 2003, Mosley's bout with former IBF world Jr. Middleweight champion Raul Marquez ended in a no contest when Mosley accidentally head butted Marquez twice in round three.

He and De La Hoya faced each other for the second time on September 13, this time with De La Hoya's WBC and WBA world Jr. Middleweight belts on the line. Mosley defeated De La Hoya by a 12 round unanimous decision, and joined the exclusive group of world boxing champions that have reigned in three or more divisions.But most people believed that Molsley lost that bout.

On January 9, 2004, news ran across that the FBI was involved in an investigation into the De La Hoya rematch. According to the news, the fight's judges that night might have been bribed by outside forces to score the fight for Mosley, something Mosley and his handlers might not have been aware of. Mosley was later also mentioned as part of an FBI investigation on athletes using steroids.

On March 13, 2004, Mosley lost his WBC and WBA world Jr. Middleweight titles in an unification bout with IBF world champion Winky Wright, by a unanimous twelve round decision.

Eight days later, on March 21, Mosley announced that he split from his father, manager and trainer, Jack Mosley, on a professional level.

On November 20, Mosley and Wright had a rematch. Although the second time around the fight was scored much closer by the three judges (115-113 twice for Wright and a 114-114 tie), Mosley, nevertheless, was defeated again, by a twelve round majority decision.

Shane Mosley returned to action, defeating the previously undefeated David Estrada by a ten round unanimous decision at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 23, 2005, as part of the Margarito-Cintron ESPN Pay Per View undercard.

Mosley currently holds a record of 40 wins, 4 losses and 1 no contest, with 35 knockouts.
