Former five-time titlist Sugar Shane Mosley will face former world champion Sergio Mora in a Golden Boy Promotions event in Los Angeles. Mosley, who recently fought at welterweight and was a champion in three weight divisions, is moving back up to Light middleweight to fight Mora, who is currently fighting at middleweight.  Mora will drop back down to the 154-pound weight division where he formerly was the WBC Light middleweight titleholder in 2008. Mosley is coming off a loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mora stopped Calvin Green in the seventh round in Las Vegas last April and was scheduled to fight Juan Carlos Candelo and was preparing for that fight. Both Mosley and Mora hail from the Los Angeles area with Mosley returning home and to the Staples Center for the first time since his spectacular knockout victory over then Welterweight World Champion Antonio Margarito in January 2009. Mora, who is well known for his first place finish on the premiere season of the NBC reality series The Contender, is returning since his 2005 decision victory over Peter Manfredo Jr. The Latin Snake is looking to become the first fighter of Mexican descent to defeat the Future Hall of Famer Mosley.

He has won five world titles, ruling the lightweight, welterweight and junior middleweight divisions over his 16-year career, defeating De La Hoya (twice), Fernando Vargas (twice), Luis Collazo, Ricardo Mayorga and Margarito along the way.
Mora is a former Junior Middleweight World Champion. He last fought at Staples Center in 2005 when he scored a split decision victory over Peter Manfredo in a rematch of his final bout championship win of The Contender. Going unbeaten in his next four fights, Mora began to rapidly climb the junior middleweight ranks, eventually winning the junior middleweight world title and then losing it to the late Vernon Forrest in 2008.
