Review: 2002-01-26, the first fight between Vernon Forrest and Shane Mosley was one of the best fights of 2002. Both boxers had the same age and also a perfect record with no defeats, 38-0-0 for Mosley e 33-0-0 for Forrest, but Vernon “The Viper” Forrest boasted a greater height (8 cm). Vernon Forrest vs Shane Mosley 1 was valid for the WBC welterweight title, won by “Sugar” Shane in 2000 when he fought against Oscar De La Hoya. After this first exciting fight between Vernon Forrest and Shane Mosley, it was organized a rematch in the same year but it was less spectacular. Watch the video!
