Poised and Powerful, Pugilist Shane Mosley Jr.’s Star on the Rise: Boxer Speaks with Us after Recent Victory against Jeremy Ramos

Sports are once again underway in the United States. One of those sports is boxing. Last week, middleweight boxer Shane Mosley Jr. defeated Jeremy Ramos on a card that took place at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

With a record of 16-3, the future is bright for this pugilist. During our CYInterview with him recently, Shane talked about how the sport is taking precautions in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

The boxer told us he was tested for Covid-19 multiple times in the three weeks leading up to his match. When it comes to how athletes are dealing with being cloistered, so they can resume competing, Shane gave us a look at what the boxing bubble was like for him, leading up to his latest bout:

“So, the first night when we actually got there, we checked in and went directly to our rooms and waited for our coronavirus tests to get in there. So, we couldn’t talk to anybody the very first night. And then the day of the weigh-in, we also got tested and everything like that again just to make sure everybody is good for the fight. And meals were prepped and just, they took all precautions necessary in order to get this fight, you know, going smoothly.”

The fight against Jeremy Ramos was Shane Mosley Jr.’s first boxing match under Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. Shane says he has known Oscar since he was a kid. His father, famed boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley, now retired, defeated Oscar De La Hoya in two matches. The first was in 2000 and the second in 2003. On what makes a great fighter, Shane Mosley Jr. tells us this:

“Skill and will together is a masterful combination. It’s the reason why we have guys like Floyd Mayweather [Jr]., Muhammad Ali, you know, things like that because those were guys, Sugar Ray Leonard, guys with skill and will. The guys that were able to work really hard and also have that skill and technique and those great moves and great understanding of the ring. So, they put it altogether and you have masterful performances, you have masterful boxers and you have a masterpiece really.”

Over the next year, Shane hopes to break into the top 10 rankings in the middleweight division. Beyond his career in the ring, listening to this promising pugilist suggests he could have a bright future as a boxing commentator down the line. Listen to his CYInterview with us and you will see what we mean.
