Both Sugar Shane Mosley and Ronald Winky Wright have finally decided to retire from the sport of boxing after putting together hall of fame worthy careers.
It’s fitting that the two fighters would decide to announce their retirements on the exact same day. At one time, both Mosley and Wright dominated the sport and sat atop everyone’s pound-for-pound rankings. Unfortunately, father time caught up with both of them. In their past five fights they have a combined record of 2 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws.
Winky Wright n Sugar Shane Mosley retired today…… Definitley great talent.. Shoutout to them n their careers
