PLAYERS: Shane Mosley
Sugar Shane Mosley will fight Canelo Alvarez on May 5 as part of an HBO pay-per-view card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Leading up to the bout, the 40-year-old boxer is sharing weekly thoughts and training updates. Question: At almost literally twice his age, you have a huge experience edge on Canelo. Having seen his approach in other fights, how will you exploit that advantage in your bout? Mosley: With experience comes wisdom and, more importantly, patience. I have fought a lot of skilled boxers in my career and I know what it takes to win. Speed and accuracy are just two aspects of what makes me the fighter that I am. I know how to use overhand rights and how to effectively land a body shot. I know how to wear down my opponent. I know all these things because I've had a long and successful career and I have done all these things. Many young fighters know how to be aggressive, but the skill stops there. It takes time to understand that aggression doesn't win fights, which is why a lot of young fighters struggle. I'm very much looking forward to getting to fight again and showing what an experienced boxer is capable of. When you fight, no matter the circumstances, you're always looking for an opportunity to overcome your opponent. It's not so easy to do that when you're a little green to the ring. Trust me, I can say unequivocally that I have the know-how to take on any opponent, regardless of age, and show my skill as a champion. I wouldn't be in the fight if I didn't think I would win. It's really no longer a thought as much as 'when' I win. I don't mean to sound boastful, it's just confidence. I know who I am as a fighter and that's it. It's going to be a great fight and I am looking forward to the reaction.
