"I haven't been on Twitter yet, so I don't really know what the fans or media are saying, but I hope they're apologizing to me and eating crow," stated three-division world champion and future Hall of Famer "Sugar" Shane Mosley, who spoke to FightHype.com shortly after his impressive unanimous decision victory over Pablo Cesar Cano on Saturday night. As far as Mosley is concerned, his performance against Cano, who he rocked on several occasions, should silence the naysayers that questioned whether or not he should still be fighting. Though he admits he still has some things to work on, Mosley is confident that he's close to his old form now that's he's injury free.
"I feel like I see a lot of signs of it, of me, the old 'Sugar' Shane Mosley, being back. In that fight, I learned there's a lot of different things I can do to better myself and improve in the next fight. I think that with my father back in the corner with me and me doing things that I'm doing, I see vast improvement coming a lot in my next fight. This was a good fight for me to take for the step to the next fight," Mosley explained during a recent conversation with FightHype. "You could see that I can move better. I can throw my jab, I can throw my right hand, and everything is landing better."
As for what's next for Mosley, he plans on discussing his options with his team, however, his performance against Cano convinced him that he can still compete with and beat any of the top names in the welterweight division. "You know, it was a very close fight with him and Paulie. He dropped Paulie. He was chasing Paulie around the ring. I mean, that was still a close fight; it could have gone either way, but it just shows what kind of caliber I am," Mosley commented when comparing his performance to that of current WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi, who many people believe lost to Cano. "I'm gonna go back with the team and we're going to talk. Me, J. Prince, my father, and Josh Dublin, we're going to all sit back and map out of plan. As of now, I'm ready to fight any and everybody."
