Shane Mosley, Anthony Mundine fight cancelled over pay dispute

Shane Mosley withdraws from tomorrow's light-middleweight bout with Anthony Mundine over an alleged breach of contract from the Sydney event's co-promoter.

Former three-weight world champion Shane Mosley has confirmed that his fight against Anthony Mundine scheduled for tomorrow night has been cancelled after he was not paid in full for the bout.

Mosley was due to face Mundine at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Wednesday in a bid to prove his title credentials at light-middleweight once again.

The 42-year-old refused to attend Monday's press conference after reportedly still being owed over £400,000 for the bout by the event's co-promoter Millennium Events.

'Sugar' Shane released a short statement announcing that he will return to the USA over an alleged breach of contract from Millenium Events after checking out of his Sydney hotel last night.

A short Molsey statement read: "I'm very disappointed with this turn of events because I was planning on making a big statement by beating Mundine, but I was left with no choice but to withdraw.

"The fans in Australia have welcomed me with open arms, and I hope to return to fight for them one day in better circumstances."

Mosley's stellar 20-year professional career includes a pair of victories over Oscar De La Hoya, but 'Sugar' has won just once since 2010.
