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, 35, was both faster and stronger as he punched his way to a unanimous 12-round decision in a welterweight fight at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Mosley 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 when the fight ended.

Promoter Bob Arum won't have to answer for allegations of impropriety he made following Oscar De La Hoya's controversial loss to Shane Mosley. The Nevada Athletic Commission had asked Arum to attend an Oct. 15 meeting to explain his allegations, but excused him after Arum apologized and said he was speaking in the heat of the moment. In a letter sent to Arum on Wednesday, commission chairman Luther Mack excused the promoter from the hearing, but said his comments that there was some sort of conspiracy to keep De La Hoya from winning were offensive.

As boxing debates go, you could do worse than trying to determine which is the more remarkable feat: 46-year-old Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins trying to become the oldest holder of a widely recognized world championship, which could happen when the seemingly ageless North Philadelphian bids to dethrone WBC light-heavyweight titlist Jean Pascal on May 21 in Montreal, or Manny Pacquiao, 32, winning belts in eight weight divisions, and seemingly...

Mike Tyson's boxing license in Michigan was suspended for three months and he must pay $205,000 for refusing to submit to a urine test before his Oct. 20 fight against Andrew Golota. The decision yesterday in Detroit will be honored by at least one important governing body outside Michigan - the Nevada State Athletic Commission. "We will honor any suspension by a sister state," said Marc Ratner, executive director of the Nevada body. However, the ruling by the Michigan Athletic Board of Control might have little impact because the former heavyweight champion was not planning to fight in the next three months.

Oscar De La Hoya sneered at Ricardo Mayorga lying there on the canvas, at the man who had heckled him and insulted his family for months of pre-fight hype. De La Hoya's left hook had blasted Mayorga to the canvas midway through Round 1 of their fight last night at the MGM Grand. Then De La Hoya teed off on Mayorga, knocking him down again in the sixth. Finally, as De La Hoya rained leather on the Nicaraguan, who was splayed defenseless against the ropes, referee Jay Nady stopped the bout at 1 minute, 25 seconds of Round 6 as the sellout crowd roared.

Shane Mosley couldn't get his price, so his Sept. 13 fight with Oscar De La Hoya is off. Mosley had until yesterday to sign for a $4.25 million purse to fight De La Hoya. When he didn't, promoter Bob Arum withdrew the offer and said the fight would not happen. "He passed on it so it's over," Arum said. Arum said De La Hoya now will look at a rematch with Fernando Vargas on the date, or could fight another contender. Arum had made a deal earlier with Mosley's manager, Barry Frank, and announced the fight.

Shane Mosley didn't make much of an impression in his first fight at 154 pounds - except to opponent Raul Marquez's face Saturday night in Las Vegas. The fight was stopped late in the third round because of deep cuts over the eyes of Marquez. The fight was ruled a no contest, but even worse for Mosley was that he did nothing to show he was worth more than the $4.25 million he was supposed to be paid to meet Oscar De La Hoya on Sept. 13. Promoter Bob Arum had a deal with Mosley's agent to fight De La Hoya, but Mosley refused to sign the contract because he wasn't happy with the purse.

A former boxer was offered $5,000 by members of promoter Bob Arum's Top Rank company to throw a fight in 1995, the New York Daily News reported yesterday. Mitchell Rose told the newspaper that two men from Top Rank came to his Brooklyn home a few weeks before his Dec. 15, 1995, fight against Eric "Butterbean" Esch and said they'd give him $5,000 to lose the bout. "They said, 'We have some money for you, a substantial amount of money,' " Rose said. "They wanted me to take a dive.

LAS VEGAS - Three times in a 30-minute sit-down with reporters Wednesday, Manny Pacquiao assured the media he is not underestimating Timothy Bradley before their welterweight world-title fight Saturday night. "I know what Timothy is feeling now, how he's trained hard, thinking this is his big break," Pacquiao said. The unsettling fact for the 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 knockouts), as he finalizes preparations for his 60th pro fight, is that the underdog spirit he relates to in Bradley is what helped push the champ to breakthrough victories years ago over Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, and Oscar De La Hoya.

ROCK ALLEN WAS apologizing for a situation not of his making and one that for the foreseeable future he is powerless to change. "I hate for you to see me like this," the former Olympic boxer told an acquaintance of long standing who was seeing him for the first time since the horrific automobile accident the evening of June 7 that left him on the verge of death. By "this," Allen meant the wheelchair in which he remains confined as he rehabs from a lengthy list of injuries that quite likely would have killed someone who had not been in such superb physical condition.

NEW YORK - There are two primary ways an athlete can cheat. He can artificially enhance his body with steroids or human growth hormone, or he can tamper with his equipment to gain a competitive edge. Both methods can be tremendously successful, if the transgressor finds a way to get away with the illegal maneuvers. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the awesome punching power for which Antonio Margarito once was known received a considerable boost from the boxing equivalent of a corked bat. Since he was caught with doctored hand wraps before his matchup with Shane Mosley on Jan. 24, 2009 - a fight he would go on to lose by unanimous decision once the suspect wraps were replaced with those that met all legal specifications, "The Tijiuana Tornado" has been downgraded to a mild breeze.

Worse yet for Floyd Mayweather Jr. is that he's getting older by the fight and Manny Pacquiao keeps stealing his spotlight. One place he doesn't expect to have any problems, however, is in the ring tomorrow night against Victor Ortiz. "I believe in my skills. I believe in my talent," Mayweather said. "This fight will not go the distance. " Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time in 16 months in an intriguing matchup against a young slugger who vows to give him his first loss.

Manny Pacquiao has been installed as a 6-1 favorite in Saturday night's match against Shane Mosley at Las Vegas' MGM Grand hotel. The odds are very much against the 39-year-old Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs), who is trying to to bounce back from a bad loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. against a fighter who has been beating up everyone put in front of him. The 32-year-old Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) has won 13 straight fights, and is so confident of his chances that he has scheduled a postfight concert on the Las Vegas Strip for all his loyal followers.

What Mosley believes boxing fans don't understand is he's got a real shot to pull off an upset over the best boxer in the world. "It's going to get very interesting, very quick," Mosley said. Oddsmakers in this gambling town don't agree, making Pacquiao a 6-1 favorite to beat Mosley when they meet in a welterweight title bout Saturday night at the MGM Grand Hotel.

MANNY PACQUIAO is the most important figure in boxing, so it can be argued that any bout in which he is involved is a big deal. It therefore doesn't seem much of a stretch when the television ads for Pacquiao's pay-per-view bout with Shane Mosley hype the Saturday matchup of future Hall of Famers as the "biggest fight of the year. " It may turn out to be just that. But even as Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) prepares to defend his WBO welterweight title against Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs)

ONE OF THE THINGS that binds us to sports is our fascination with the statistics they generate. Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. Cal Ripken Jr.'s 2,632 consecutive games played. Wilt Chamberlain's monster 100-point and 55-rebound games. Jerry Rice's 197 touchdown receptions. Archie Moore's 131 knockout victories. Those numbers are as familiar to fans as the dates of loved ones' birthdays. But just as incredible, sometimes, are the stats compiled by those who merely observe.
