Mayweather Vs. Cotto: 'Sugar' Shane Mosley Unsure On Retirement Following Loss

"Sugar" Shane Mosley was non-committal after his loss to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez when pushed on if he would retire from the sport of boxing. He explained that "when the kids start to beat you up, it might be time to start promoting." He also gave Alvarez credit as being "the better man" on the night.

Mosley made it clear that he still needed to look at the fight before making a decision, but his eyes seemed to tell a different story. He looked profoundly sad while speaking to HBO's Larry Merchant about the way the fight went down. He certainly took a lot of punishment over his career and has slowed down considerably over the last five years.

If this was it for Shane, he went out in respectable fashion. Yes, he took a beating, but he never stopped coming forward and trying to make something happen. His career has been legendary and he certainly is a first-ballot hall-of-famer when he does make the final decision to hang up the gloves.
