Robert Morales: Mosley trying to revive faltering boxing career

first_img But that was more than five years ago. Mosley has since gone 5-4 with one no-contest in his past 10 fights, 2-4 with the no-contest in his past seven. Moreover, Mosley is just 1-4 in his past five world championship fights. The victory during that span was another decision over De La Hoya, in September 2003 — a fight many experts thought De La Hoya won. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Long gone are those patented Mosley combinations. Gone is the tremendous body punching. Mosley said recently he has found his missing tools, however. He plans on putting them to work Saturday on the undercard of the Marco Antonio Barrera-Robbie Peden super featherweight title unification bout at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mosley will take on Jose Luis Cruz of Mexico in a 12-round welterweight fight. The card will be available on HBO pay-per-view for $44.95. During a workout for the media at the De La Hoya Youth Center in East Los Angeles, Mosley addressed, among other issues, the missing combinations that used to overwhelm opponents. “Yeah, I am definitely aware of that,” said Mosley, who has won world championships in the lightweight, welterweight and junior middleweight divisions. “And I have put that back together. “I am throwing more combinations in my sparring and in my workouts — hitting the bag, things like that. My footing is changing a little bit, so my footing is getting a lot better where I can let the combinations go fast and go rapidly, and a lot.” Mosley also admitted he has gotten away from the body punching he often used with painful results. All of it, he said, is being worked on with trainer John David Jackson. Jackson, a former junior middleweight and middleweight champion, worked Mosley’s most recent fight, a 10-round decision over David Estrada on April 23 at Caesars Palace. Before that, Van Nuys’ Joe Goossen trained Mosley for one fight — a second consecutive loss to Winky Wright last Nov. 20 at Mandalay Bay. Prior to that, Mosley was trained by his father, Jack, his entire career. But they had a well-publicized falling out. “John has known me from the beginning,” Mosley said of Jackson. “When I fought Oscar the first time, he was one of my sparring partners. He knows how I train; he knows a lot of my weaknesses and my strengths. “We work on a lot of the weaknesses that I kind of made up. We’re getting rid of those weaknesses and moving forward.” Mosley, who showed only a little improvement against Estrada, said he has become too flat-footed. He said he has become too much of a slugger who relies on one or two big punches instead of the beautiful power boxer he was in that first fight against De La Hoya. Some of the combinations he landed in that fight were things of beauty, the kind of stuff that makes a great fighter. At 34, Mosley (40-4, 35 KOs) might not be the same fighter. If he beats Cruz — and it probably won’t be easy because Cruz is 32-0-2 with 27 knockouts — Mosley will be looking for another world title shot. But he doesn’t want to get to that point unless he is once again ready for the big time. Mosley said that’s why he took the fight with Cruz. In his mind, he could have bypassed this fight and waited and someone would have given him a chance at another championship. “I just wanted to make sure that I felt good when I go into the world title shot, whether it be Zab Judah or Floyd Mayweather Jr. or whoever,” said Mosley, 14-4 in championship fights. “I don’t want to make a fool out of myself. “I want to be at the top of my game. I want to be sharp. I gotta carry that ‘Sugar’ name and I gotta be spectacular.” Judah holds three of the four welterweight belts. Mayweather holds one of the junior welterweight belts but has said he wants to move up to welterweight. – Saturday’s main event will be for Barrera’s World Boxing Council and Peden’s International Boxing Federation super featherweight belts. Besides Mosley-Cruz, the undercard will feature Levander Johnson in a defense of his IBF lightweight belt against Jesus “El Matador” Chavez. – One of the best nicknames in boxing belongs to Brian Viloria, a Studio City resident. Originally from Waipahu, Hawaii, Viloria goes by the moniker of “Hawaiian Punch.” Viloria walked into the ring last Saturday at Staples Center to the theme song of the 1970s series “Hawaii Five-O,” then knocked out Eric Ortiz in the first round to win the WBC light flyweight championship. Now that’s living up to a nickname. — Robert Morales can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2213, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By the end of 2017, the company expects to have rolled out 20 commercial NB-IoT networks around the globe.“Besides technological innovation and product development, Huawei will proactively and relentlessly promote construction of the NB-IoT ecosystem and boost incubation of NB-IoT applications for a prosperous future for the NB-IoT industry,” said Zhu.NB-IoT competition from around the worldMeanwhile, UK-based Vodafone has announced rollout plans for its NB-IoT network, which will start in four European countries next year.The dedicated IoT network will go live in Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Spain in the first quarter of 2017.Vodafone has been one of the largest backers on NarrowBand, an evolution of Huawei’s NB-IoT effort. 3GPP, the largest telecommunication association, standardized the technology in June.However, narrowband is currently competing with LoRa, another IoT network built by Semtech. A few developments in Asia have cropped up in the past using that standard, creating fragmentation in the IoT networking industry.last_img read more
