If you are Sugar Shane Mosley, you were celebrating a unanimous decision victory over Oscar De La Hoya in the ring at the MGM Grand. The fight, which was televised by HBO Pay-Per-View, became the second-highest non-heavyweight pay-per-view in history, with over 975,000 buys and $50.2 million in pay-per-view revenue. It was the second time Mosley had dethroned De la Hoya from his world title perch, having beaten him in 2000 for the WBC welterweight championship.
Mosley challenges Winky Wright, the first undisputed 154 pound champion in 29 years, for the world super welterweight title, Saturday, November 20 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. HBO will televise it live nationally.
