‘SUGAR’ Shane Mosley acknowledges he was probably at his best as a lightweight yet ventured to super-welterweight for big-money fights and is best known for his exploits as a welterweight.

At lightweight he won the IBF title and defended it eight times, all by stoppage, while at welterweight he defeated Oscar De La Hoya in 2000 to take the WBC title and then defended that belt three times.

Now, three years after he left, the division is headed up by Americans Errol Spence Jnr, Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter, as well as Manny Pacquiao, a legend Mosley knows only too well.
