The stage was set: Sugar Shane Mosley, recognized by boxing pundits as the most talented fighter in the world, would defend his welterweight title against challenger Adrian Stone at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace. The opportunity beckoned for Mosley to showcase his prodigious skills on an exalted stage, the pugilistic equivalent of cellist Yo-Yo Ma performing at Carnegie Hall. On that warm July evening, Mosley performed with aplomb, mixing his extraordinary hand- and foot-speed with swarming power.

Boxer "Sugar" Shane Mosley is retiring, ending a career in which he won titles in three weight classes, beat Oscar De La Hoya twice and never was knocked out. The 40-year-old from Pomona announced on Twitter that he was hanging up his gloves, saying he "loved every moment of it. Win, lose or draw. " Mosley lost three of his last four fights, including a dreary bout against Manny Pacquiao in May 2011 in which he mostly seemed to be avoiding the Filipino superstar in the ring.

Sugar Shane Mosley has been pulled out of the co-main boxing event scheduled for Nov. 2 at the Warner Center Marriott. Fight organizers and Mosley's managers could not agree on an opponent, promoter Peter Broudy said Wednesday. Mosley, a lightweight from Pomona, is 15-0 with 14 knockouts.

HBO has run a series of blog posts from Floyd Mayweather in advance of his upcoming fight with Miguel Cotto. In this post, which HBO has shared with The Times, Mayweather responds to the question: What is Cotto's most dangerous attribute as a fighter and does he have a fighting chance against you on May 5? As I've said before, in order to be the best you have to beat the best and that is what Miguel Cotto has to do on May 5. He has to beat me.  Cotto is always dangerous in the ring.

He hasn't walked out of a ring with his arms raised in more than two years. He is being paid less than half as much as his opponent for a rematch of a fight he won. And now, here, in the driveway of his new training camp, 7,000 feet above a world of doubters, the unsweetened aura of Sugar Shane Mosley has been burned into cotton. Spread out on car hoods were official black T-shirts trumpeting his Sept. 13 fight with Oscar De La Hoya. At the top of those shirts was a single word, a fight theme.

Welterweight boxing champ "Sugar" Shane Mosley has a date with destiny Saturday in Las Vegas against undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr., and the 38-year-old Pomona product says he's done everything possible to give the HBO pay-per-view audience a night to remember. "I've worked really hard to be the best I can possibly be, because I'm fighting for my legacy now," says the veteran Mosley. "It's more than just another fight for me. And I'll be ready." He'll also be ready for some R&R when it's all over, and here's how that might go. I have a home in Las Vegas and my training facility is in Big Bear, but I still spend a lot of time in the Los Angeles area.

I really enjoyed the well-written article on Sugar Shane Mosley (Shadow Boxing, by David Davis, Dec. 9). Davis did an excellent job illuminating Mosleys plight. It has been frustrating to watch his career stall despite his terrific ability. Thank you for drawing more attention to this great athlete and the stepchild sport of boxing.
