Thoughts on Mosley v Mora

So Suger Shane Mosley is set to face The Latin Snake at the Staples Center on the 18th Sept.

Mosley last outing was a complete drumming at the hands of Mayweather jr,by the time he squares off against Mora he will be 39yrs old,

The three weight champoin 46-6-0 (39ko's)owes boxing nothing, superb wins over Oscar dela Hoya (twice),Fernando Vargas (twice) Luis Colliazo and Antonio Margerito,not so great nights against Verron Forrest (twice) Winky Wright (twice) Ricardo Mayorga and of course Mayweather jr, whether winning or losing Suger Shane has always been value for money and despite the steriod controversy has been a credit to the sport.

As boxing fans i'm sure we would all like to see the great man carry on and i'm no diffrent, but a big part of me wishes he would call it a day,

after 17years as a pro there are some major miles on the clock,and at 39yrs old nothing gets any easier, except perhaps the ablitiy to fool your self that you've got one more great fight left.

Evander Holyfild still insists that he is as good as he ever was and each training camp is the best yet.

As father time close's in a fighters speed and timing are alway one of the first thing to suffer, against Mayorga he looked terreble untill the last gasp ko, against Margarito he looked superb the Mexican was just to slow and in retrospect was taylor made for Suger,if the Maywether fight had been 10years eariler the result would have been a toss up as it was you could see that the mind knew what to do but the body could not respond.

So Sergio Mora 29yrs old 22-1-1 (6ko's) will grab this chance to add a superstar name to his record,after winning the title from Verron Forrest his title reign lasted just three months when he lost the return, the Latin Snake is not a big puncher but is bigger quick and a alround tricky customer everything that Mosley at this stage doesn't need.

Mosley does have an outside chance of winning this but what then? a return with Cotto at catchweight or Berto maybe, not many fighters know when to call it a day, but i for one hope win lose or draw Suger Shane see's the light.
