From BoxingScene

Legal papers will begin to fly if WBC junior middleweight champion Sergio Mora moves forward with a discussed pay-per-view bout against Shane Mosley on October 11 at the Staples Center in California. Mora won his first major title last Saturday at the Mohegan Sun when he pulled off a majority decision over Forrest. There was an immediate rematch clause in the contract and Forrest exercised the clause.

According to Forrest, the contract prevents Mora from facing another fight prior to their rematch, and it doesn't even matter if Mora still holds the title. Golden Boy Promotions is having discussions with Jeff Wald (promoter of Mora) to secure his fighter for Mosley's October PPV date.

Forrest tells MaxBoxing/BoxingScene.com that he's unwilling to take a step aside fee.

"It's not going to happen. They could try, but it won't happen. It's not about money. It's about principles and it's about my fans. I owe it to my fans. Mora ain't fighting nobody but Vernon Forrest in September. There will be no step aside and no payoff. There is only going be a fight - me and Mora in September. That's the only fight that Mora will see next," Forrest said.

Even if a miracle took place and Forrest took some cash to step aside, Mora was recently mandated by the WBC to defend the title against Sergio Martinez. The sanctioning body wants them to begin negoiations on an immediate basis with no delays. Martinez's promoter, Lou DiBella, has indicated that he would move for Mora to be stripped of the title if the Mosley fight went forward.

sometimes you need a fire lit under your ass to perform at the level you are capable of.

He knew Mora was gonna win so he retired before Mora could challenge him. This is the latin snake we're talkin about. The next P4P king!
For sure man. Since we are talking about realistic things, have you ever seen my pet leprechaun? He's half Irish and half Mexican. Does all of the leprechaun stuff but he wears a sombrero and speaks spanish.


(Not meant as racist, it's a joke!)

Mosley I think would win all the way, but after watching him in the Forrest fight, I'll never underestimate Mora.

what would Forrest change in the re-match? I see Mora beating even easier next time he seem to be finding his pace towards the end of the fight while Vernon looked like a guy that did not want to fight any more.

i read somewhere that forrest had to lose too much weight and thus he felt he couldn't move his legs after the 4th or something. i aint seen the fight but if he did look finished then that may explain it.

also he musta taken sergio lightly because he mentioned he laughed at mora while sparring and fighting with one hand.

mora is a nice guy. i mentioned it somehwere before but it was a good sight to see him almost cry in hapiness after having his first suit on the contender. well there are soem boxers who have come from a lot worse but it hasn't been filmed if you know what i mean.
