FORMER three-division champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley is proud to announce that he is bringing International Boxing Hall of Fame member Roberto “Manos De Piedra” Duran on as his trainer for his upcoming world title fight.

Duran, who defeated several of the top names in sport and is regarded by many as the greatest Latino fighter of all time, is looking to make Mosley into an even greater force in boxing.

After ending a brief retirement, Shane Mosley went 2-0 in 2015 and in the upcoming few days will announce his next fight which will be for a world title.  Mosley has stated on numerous occasions that he came back to the sport to face the biggest possible names and believes that Duran will help him achieve his goals.

“I am very happy to have Duran on my team.  This is the type of addition that will push me even farther,” said Mosley.  “He is a fighter that I looked up to when I was coming up.  How can you not learn from a legend like him?”

44-year-old Mosley fought last in December 2015 when he halted Venezuelan southpaw Patrick Lopez in Duran’s hometown of Panama City, Panama.
