Shane Mosley to fight Ricardo Mayorga


Shane Mosley isn’t finished yet. The former three-division titleholder will fight Ricardo Mayorga on Aug. 29, Mosley announced on his Twitter account. The fight reportedly will take place at 154 pounds in Los Angeles.

Mosley, 43, hasn’t been in the ring since he was knocked out in seven rounds by Anthony Mundine in November 2013, the first time he had been stopped.

Mosley (47-9-1, 39 knockouts) fought Mayorga in September 2008, scoring a 12th-round knockout in what had been a close fight. He is 1-4-1 in his last six fights, dating back to his unanimous-decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2010.

Mayorga (31-8-1, 25 KOs) has stopped two relatively unknown opponents since a 3¾-year layoff, which followed a 12th-round KO loss to Miguel Cotto in March 2011. Mayorga is 41.

Mosley’s son, Shane Jr. (4-1, 4 KOs) also is scheduled to fight on the card
