Mosley, Mundine open to future rematch

Phil Jay 17/10/2015

‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley has informed WBN that he would be prepared to fight Anthony Mundine again should he ever make a move back up to 154 pounds in the future.

The American legend is sticking at the welterweight limit for the time being, which he reiterated is his preferred weight, although any offer to avenge his loss to the Australian would be considered down the line.

Mosley, 44, was beaten by a severe back injury in the November 2013 contest held at the Allphones Arena in Sydney and had to pull out in the seventh round when behind to Mundine on the all three scorecards.

“Of course, If I ever head back to 154, and maybe with less pain in the build-up. Also, to not have my back tight, yes I’d fight Anthony Mundine again,” Mosley told World Boxing News.

“I just need to be better prepared for the fight this time around.”

Current WBC silver super welterweight champion Mundine was also asked him opinion on a potential return with Mosley in 2016 as the 40 year-old prepares to face Charles Hatley on November 11 in Melbourne.

“It depends on the deal and the money for Mosley, but I’ll fight anybody if it’s fair and good,” Mundine told World Boxing News.

“There also has to be no options and just a fight per fight deal, although my focus is Hatley for now and I am not looking past that fight.”

Following a recent stoppage victory over Ricardo Mayorga, Mosley is now ranked in the top ten at 147 with the World Boxing Association and will be staying at the lower weight for the immediate future.
