On Saturday night, 43-year-old Shane Mosley will step back into the ring to fight Ricardo Mayorga in a fight no one really asked for and no one really wants to see.
The first anyone really became aware that the fight was even going on was when Mayorga slapped Mosley's girlfriend on the butt.
But that hasn’t stopped the twice-retired Mosley from talking up possible future fights against people who probably won’t fight him, namely Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Mosley spoke to Jake Fisher of SI.com and the former Champion revealed that he wanted one last crack at two of the biggest names boxing.
"I want to get a couple of fights and then I want to try for the world title again," Mosley said. "I want to fight Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. I’m on that level. I’m still on that level."
Mosley already has lost to both fighters in the past, a unanimous-decision defeat to Mayweather in 2010 and the exact same result against Pacquiao one year later.
But in the SI.com interview, he claimed to have been injured heading into both bouts. That didn't stop him from calling out the two again for one last bout between the ropes.
"This won’t be my last fight. I’m gonna go out and fight some more," he said. "I want to win the world title. I want to fight Manny Pacquiao or Mayweather. I want to fight these guys again. I know that now I’m a better fighter and I can get to these guys and win," Mosley added.
Sorry Shane, but these matches were one sided four and five years ago, they would be even more so now.
