Mosley down under!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Future Hall of Famer Shane Mosley is in Australia and will be ringside Wednesday to witness his good friend and world rated featherweight Billy Dib challenge Davey Browne for the IBF Pan Pacific Youth featherweight crown at The Cube, Campbelltown, NSW, Australia. Leading Australian promoter Fidel Tukel arranged to have Shane in Australia for Billy Dib’s championship challenge. Tukel said. “It was a pleasure to bring Shane to Australia for Billy’s bout against Davey Browne. Shane and Billy have been good friends for some time now so I am sure it will help him to perform at his best.” Shane Mosley jumped on the scales where he weighed in at 76kg (167.6 lbs) fully dressed. Mosley said, ” it’s always great to come to Australia. I have been here before and enjoy myself each time. This is important fight for Billy so I am happy to be here.” Regarding his fight against Antonio Margarito, Mosley was asked if the Mexican could punch. Mosley said, “I don’t know – he never hit me.”
