On a national teleconference held today, both WBA welterweight champion Antonio Margarito (37-5, 27 KOs) and challenger “Sugar” Shane Mosley (45-5, 38 KOs) promised victories for their showdown next week at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
“All I’m thinking about is Mosley,” declared Margarito. “He’s a very experienced fighter … He’s a great champion and I’m not gonna underestimate him. But I put in the work in my training and I have what it takes to win. I’m ready to put on a good show.”
“I’m confident that I’m going to be spectacular,” said Mosley. “I’m at my best and I’m not going to try to get away from him, like Cotto. I’m going to get my shots in … I’m ready to get it on.” – Stay tuned for a full report tomorrow!
