Sweet! Boxing Champ ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley Battles Dogfighting

Written by PETA | July 23, 2009

How appropriate is it that on the week that convicted dogfighter Michael Vick takes off his ankle bracelet and strolls out of his house a free man, we should roll out our new anti-dogfighting ad starring “Sugar” Shane Mosley?

Let’s watch the World Boxing Association’s reigning welterweight super champ in action, shall we?

“Sugar” Shane leads with an uppercut: “I’m a boxer. … My opponents and I know that when we step into the ring, we choose to be there and that if we don’t come out on top, we can at least walk away.”

Here comes a hook: “Dogfighting isn’t like that. Dogs don’t have the choice. Many of them get hurt badly or are cruelly killed.”

The welterweight super champion finishes with a jab: “Dogfighting is dirty, it’s cruel, and it’s a loser’s game …”

(The crowd of dog defenders stands and cheers the champ.)

Ooh, whatta knockout!

Follow the jump for some sweet, behind the scene footage of “Sugar” Shane.

    To Mr. Mosley….. THANKYOU! THANKYOU! THANKYOU! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!

    I congratulate Mr. Mosly on his stand on dogfighting. I am furious over Goodell’s spineless decision to reinstate dog murderer Vick. How sickening. I know PETA will be waiting to find out if some nfl team is stupid enough to hire him. He will be poison any team he might go to. Shame on you Goodell!

    michael vick should sit down and listen to and watch Mr. Sugar Shane Mosely’s views and opinions on the cruel and inhuman treatment on dogs. Dogs are very social creatures and smarter than humans give them credit for. They are definatly smarter than m. vic. the looser should be ashamed of himself. vick should not be permitted to play in the NFL. God bless Mr. Mosley. M. Vick needs to go to “Dog Town” and spend a couple of years learning how to have social behavior like his poor abused dogs had to. God bless the trainers at Dog Town and bless Mr. Mosley.

    God Bless Sugar!!! He ROCKS. America needs to show the righteous side of professional sports. I just became a boxing fan!

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Here are some posters for the Jumbotron at sporting events REAL MEN DON’T SUPPORT DOGFIGHTING. SUGAR SHANE MOSLEY IS A REAL MAN. WHEN MICHAEL VICK FINALLY GROWS UP HE WANTS TO BECOME A REAL MAN LIKE SUGAR SHANE MOSLEY. DOGFIGHTER MICHAEL VICK IS NOT A MAN. BOXER SUGAR SHANE MOSELY IS A MAN.

  • sb says:

    This is a REAL man. Vick should be ashamed of himself and I seriously doubt that he is. There are places for idiots like him….and they’ll burn there when the time comes.

  • Kelley says:

    Real men are nice to animals!

  • Shari says:

    That was GREAT! Michael Vick should go back to jail at least serve out 5 years for killing one dog. Which I think is the true prison sentence for killing just 1 dog. He didn’t even do that. They know he killed 7 more than that. Thank you “Sugar” for fighting for these dogs! At least we know your telling the truth that you are against this brutal crime against dogs! Unlike Vick.
