WBA welterweight champion Antonio ‘The Tijuana Tornado’ Margarito and three-division world champion ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley pose during the press conference for their upcoming world welterweight championship on Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles on HBO’s World Championship Boxing. Former two-division Bernard Hopkins separates the two combatants.
“I know Mosley’s style, he knows mine,” Margarito told reporters today. “He knows I’m not stepping back. I’ll be pressuring him to fight my fight. You will see a knockout!” Mosley promised a “special” performance. “My training has gone well and on Saturday you’ll notice a diference,” he stated. Golden Boy’s Bernard Hopkins, referencing his recent win over Kelly Pavlik, warned “Don’t think Mosley will lose because he’s older.” Margarito vs. Mosley is promoted by Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions.
