Cedric Kushner, Shane Mosley's promoter, has reached an agreement with World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman to pay a reduced sanctioning fee for Saturday's welterweight title fight between Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya. Under the old WBC guidelines, which assess a fighter 3% of his purse, Mosley would have been required to pay $135,000, based on his $4.5-million purse. Instead, he will pay well under $100,000, Kushner said.
