Mosley says he’ll go to 140!

WBA welterweight champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley announced today that he is prepared to fight at 140 pounds if a bout for Manny Pacquiao’s IBO junior welterweight championship can be arranged. “There is unfinished business to take care of. I have never fought at junior welterweight, but I’m ready to fight at 140 now. I am coming after Pacquiao’s belt. This is the fight the fans want and I’m prepared to give it to them. It’s up to Bob Arum and Manny Pacquiao to stop running from me and step up to the challenge. Let’s meet in the ring at 140. I want to reclaim the title of best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. First Pacquiao, then Mayweather—I’m ready to put all of the naysayers to rest.” Pacquiao is expected to next face Miguel Cotto in November, while Mayweather has a September date with Mosley’s Golden Boy stablemate Juan Manuel Marquez.
