mosley-steroidsThe spotlight was on Shane Mosley last January 24 as he faced Antonio Margarito at the Staples Center. Margarito wasn’t able to do anything about Mosley’s aggressive attacks for the first six rounds. Although he was able to fight back on the seventh, this wasn’t enough to throw Mosley off. After a knockdown on the eighth round, Margarito was knocked out on the ninth after 43 seconds of trying to put up with his opponent.

What is truly amazing aside from the great determination that Mosley showed during the battle is that he kept his focus from round one. Mosley is facing several trials in his life right now. He just fired his father, Jack, from being his trainer. He is dealing with divorce from his wife, Jin, who had also been his manager. And he is facing an anabolic steroids scandal to which many legal actions against him are attached.

Last Saturday night, Mosley put on one of the greatest battles in his career. He may have regained the welterweight championship but it makes you wonder if this would be enough to help him regain the respect of those around him
