Mosley Jr. Signs With Golden Boy
The future appears to be at Golden Boy. Shane Mosley Jr., son of the legendary Shane Mosley, has signed a deal with Oscar De La Hoya’s team on a multi-fight deal. The deal is also through the Tournament of Contenders.
“I am thrilled to be joining Golden Boy,” said Shane Mosley Jr. “I feel this was meant to be; I’ve known Oscar, Eric and Robert since I was a kid. It feels like a homecoming. This is an incredible opportunity for me and a big step in the right direction on the road to becoming a world champion. I’m grateful to Golden Boy, The Contender and my management team, Victory Sports, for making this happen.”
Mosley (15-3) started his professional career in 2014, beating Mark Cordova via KO. The 29-year-old is 5-1 in his last six fights and has 9 wis via knockout. Currently on a two-fight win streak, Mosley has fought all over the country. He just recently participated in the revived Contender reality show, winning two in a row.
“Shane Mosley Jr. is family to us,” said CEL of Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya. “We’ve known him since he was very young. So, I’m delighted to have him join the Golden Boy stable. This is the place where he belongs, and I’m positive that he will flourish in his new home.”
The son of the Hall of Famer has worked hard to become the next generation of Mosley’s to take over boxing. “Sugar” Shane (49-10-1, 1NC) is a former IBF Lightweight, WBA and WBC Welterweight, and WBA and The Ring Light-Middleweight Champion. He is also a two-time lineal champion.
“We are excited to partner with Golden Boy and feel that this is the best place for Shane to take his career to the next level,” said President of Victory Sports Rick Torres. “Having worked with Oscar, Eric and Robert on a number of events in the past, I know they have what it takes to help us guide Shane to a world championship.”
An opponent for Mosley has not been announced yet.
