Pomona's "Sugar" Shane Mosley won't fight for another title when he returns to the ring Feb. 10, but he will meet a recent former champion: Luis Collazo.
Mosley's scheduled challenge of International Boxing Federation welterweight champion Kermit Cintron next month was canceled this week because of conflicts with promotional contracts Cintron had signed, a spokeswoman for Golden Boy Promotions said.
That cancellation led Mosley to former World Boxing Assn. welterweight champion Collazo (27-2, 13 knockouts), a 25-year-old left-hander from Brooklyn, N.Y., who lost his belt to England's Ricky Hatton in a close decision in May.
"Collazo showed he's a good boxer-puncher against Hatton, he's crafty," Mosley, 35, said by telephone from his training camp in Big Bear City.
