Sugar Shane Mosley

Sugar Shane Mosley, SUGAR Shane Mosley has likened Australian boxing to “the mafia days” – an indication of just how far the sport has tumbled in the past decade.

As revealed exclusively by The Daily Telegraph, ageing US great Mosley walked out on his Sydney fight with Anthony Mundine – scheduled for last night – after remaining payments on his $1 million purse were not met.

Asked about the debacle upon returning to Los Angeles, Mosley compared the Australian fight scene to being “like the mafia days” – admitting to fearing the Mundine fight was set be swayed by dodgy referees, officials and illegal betting.

One of the greatest fighters of the modern era also confirmed reports in The Daily Telegraph today that he would not be returning for a proposed card, to be promoted by Team Mundine, in Brisbane on December 4.

“It seems like they’re still behind the times with their boxing – it’s like the mafia days,” future Hall of Famer Mosley said in an interview with

“I’m hearing that people watch the judges; they’re sitting behind them looking at them while they mark their scores and shit.
