Mosley Responds To Wright!

Press Release: Two-time Oscar De La Hoya conqueror SUGAR SHANE MOSLEY, a world champion in three different weight divisions, took time out of his training schedule to address world super welterweight champion Winky Wright's  recent remarks about their upcoming world title rematch, Saturday, November 20, at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.  HBO will televise the Gary Shaw Productions, LLC-promoted event live, beginning at 9:45 P.M. ET / 6:45 P.M. PT "I am going to personally teach Winky the meaning of 'term limit' when we meet in the ring in 10 days," said Mosley.  " He is going to find out being the 'incumbent' only guarantees that he enters -- not exits -- the ring last.  At least Winky can take comfort knowing that even though his reign as undisputed champion was short, it was longer than the network run of 'The Next Great Champion.'  I have a new chief of staff in Joe Goossen and I guarantee you THIS campaign will be run a lot different than the first one we ran in March!" Wright, who arrived in Las Vegas on Monday, had stated the following:  "Shane is going to find out that it isn't the trainer he should have changed for this fight, but the opponent.  I am coming into this campaign with bipartisan support from my left AND my right.  THIS incumbent is staying in office!"
