Shane Mosley

Former world champion Shane Mosley believes that the current holder of the belt, WBA kit Turman (26-0, 22KO) will not be able to retain his title in a fight with a contender Shawn porter (26-1-1, 16KO).

44-year-old Mosley was one step away from the opportunity to compete for the title of champion under version WBA vs Keith Thurman, however, failed to become a major contender for the title.

In order to guaranteed to fight for the world title, Shane was required to defeat David Avanesyan (24-1-1, 11 KO’s), to do what he could not. Heavy 12-round fight ended in victory for the Avanesyan decision of the judges, who expressed a preference for a more young and fresh boxer.

Now the world champion under version WBA Thurman will defend his title in a battle with porter in the arena Barclays Center in new York.

According to Mosley, the advantage in this fight is on the side of the porter, as he has a very powerful chin and the best physical condition for a 12-round confrontation.

“It will be a good, tough fight between Shawn porter and Keith Thurman. I know Shawn’s been working very hard – he is actually a gym. He’s ready for 12-round fight, but I’m not sure if this Thurman. He has a very good shot, but his chin is worse than the porter, and he’s not so tough. That’s why in this fight I’m leaning towards Sean. I think he will win it,” said Mosley.
