Add Shane Mosley
to the list of boxers who are unable to stay retired for long. "Sugar" Shane, 41, is 0-3-1 in his last four fights and looked old and slow in his most recent bouts. Mosley announced his retirement a month after being nearly shutout by Saul Alvarez
on May 5, 2012. Nevertheless, his "comeback" fight will be for a world title and - even if he loses - he's unlikely to get hurt as his opponent is light-hitting WBA welterweight beltholder Paulie Malignaggi
. The fight is tentatively slated for April 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, so Malignaggi will have the support of his hometown crowd.
Mosley and Malignaggi were both hoping to fight Ricky Hatton, but when Hatton got knocked out in his own comeback from retirement, Mosley and Malignaggi went to Plan B -- fighting each other.
Mosley will reportedly early only $350,000 for the fight, his smallest purse in 15 years.
