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.
