Mosley vs Mundine back on for November 27

Shane Mosley's fight with Anthony Mundine is back on, reportedly, as the two are said to be set for a November 27 fight in Sydney.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Shane Mosley will head back to Australia soon, as he's got a rescheduled date of November 27 for his fight with Anthony Mundine, a bout that fell apart over money just a couple of weeks ago when Mosley arrived in Australia for the fight, then left because he wasn't paid the remaining $700,000 he was owed.

It was reported then that the fight could be rescheduled with a new promoter, and as we speculated then, that promoter will be Khoder Nasser, who has guaranteed Mosley's $1 million purse for the event. There were also reports then that tickets had not sold well, but former promoter Vlad Warton disputed that claim.

Mosley, 42, scored his first win in over four years in May, when he went to Mexico and beat Pablo Cesar Cano in an entertaining bout. It was the first time in his 20-year pro career that "Sugar" Shane had traveled outside of the United States to fight, and this will mark the second time. There's a growing market for faded American stars to leave the country for paydays, and Mosley is taking advantage of the same thing that the likes of Roy Jones Jr and Antonio Tarver have in the past few years.
