“Sugar” Shane Mosley informed RingTV.com that he will be ending his retirement with a fight against Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano on May 18 in Cancun, Mexico.
Mosley (46-8-1, 39 knockouts) last fought in May 2012, a wide decision loss to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, a bout at 154 pounds.
He’ll be returning to welterweight for the fight against Cano (26-2-1, 20 knockouts), who last fought in Oct. 2012 in a controversial loss to Paulie Malignaggi. Cano dropped Malignaggi in Round 11, but ended up losing a split decision in Malignaggi’s hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Ironically, Mosley was set to fight Malignaggi in May before the fight fell apart.
Mosley is 41 while Cano is 23.
