Mosley wins unanimous decision in welterweight fight with Collazo

LAS VEGAS -- Shane Mosley wants to fight until he's 40. The way he looked Saturday night against Luis Collazo, he might consider extending his career even longer.

Fighting a tough southpaw 10 years his junior, Mosley was both faster and stronger as he punched his way to a unanimous 12-round decision in a welterweight fight that was entertaining from the opening bell.

The 35-year-old knocked Collazo down in the 11th round and used his superior speed against a fighter who didn't have nearly his experience but was game and still punching with everything he had when the fight ended.

Two judges has Mosley winning 118-109, while the third had it 119-108. The Associated Press had Mosley winning 117-110.

Mosley, coming off of two wins over Fernando Vargas that seemed to re-energize his career, was a 3-1 favorite against the heavily tattooed Collazo, who held a piece of the welterweight title before losing it last May to Ricky Hatton.

Mosley moved down in weight to 147 pounds after spending much of the last four years fighting at 154 pounds. He predicted he would be quicker

Collazo's strategy was to fight from the outside and use his right jab to keep Mosley away and pile up points. But Mosley was able to use feints to get his way inside early and often, and by the second round was smiling during exchanges with his far less experienced opponent.

Mosley raised his right hand in triumph as the second round ended, confident the fight was already his. The confidence was shared in the corner by Jack Mosley, his father and trainer.

''He's got nothing more than the guys you spared with, in fact he's got less,'' Jack Mosley told his son after the second round.
