Mosley wants son Shane Jr to fight on potential Smith undercard

Phil Jay 27/10/2015

Shane Mosley hopes to share the bill with son Shane Jr if a potential clash with Liam Smith is finalized in the near future.

The 44 year-old has been in contact with Frank Warren over the possibility of challenging Smith at for his WBO super welterweight title at Manchester Arena on December 19, although a rematch clause stipulation is in danger of scuppering the bout.

Should talks come to an amicable solution, Mosley aims to find a place on the bill for his young namesake, 24, in order to secure a piece of family history for the first time in their respective careers.

“The Liam Smith fight will be my first in the UK if it happens and Shane Jr will be fighting on the undercard. It will also be the first time we both fight on the same card, father and son, so let’s hope they agree to the terms and the fight can happen,” Mosley exclusively told World Boxing News.

Shane Jr is currently 4-1 in the paid ranks having suffered a setback in his third pro bout, although impressed recently when scoring a devastating 51 second KO on his Big Knockout Boxing debut last June against Jason Kelly.
