Mosley will now pursue the promotional aspects, beginning with the amateur career of his 21-year-old son, Shane Mosley Jr., according to the fighter’s longtime friend, Hassan Abdulrahim.

Shane Mosley has officially retired, and he’s going to go into the promotional side of the sport. Shane is going to be working with his son, who has a promising amateur career,” said Abdulrahim, who serves as Mosley’s camp coordinator.
