Mundine to fight Sugar Shane



Former middleweight champion Anthony Mundine will fight Shane Mosley in Sydney in October.

The Australian announced on Wednesday that he would fight the legendary American, calling the bout a "huge and defining moment".

It will be the first fight for Mundine, a former rugby league footballer who switched to boxing in July 2000, since losing an IBF middleweight title bout to fellow Australian and arch rival Daniel Geale in January.

"The wait is finally over. I will be fighting Sugar Shane Mosley at 154 pounds,” (70 kg) he said on his Facebook page.

"Sugar Shane Mosley Signed & Deal Done! more details to follow," added the 38-year-old, nicknamed The Man. "This is going to be huge and a defining moment. I feel blessed".

Mosley, who has won five “world” titles in three weight classes, announced his retirement in June last year after he lost a unanimous decision to junior middleweight champ Saul Alvarez of Mexico.

But the 41-year-old returned to the ring in May, beating Pablo Cesar Cano by unanimous decision to win the vacant WBC international welterweight title in Mexico.
