Better with age?

LAS VEGAS -- Shane Mosley didn't just take off a few pounds to fight Luis Collazo. It seemed as if he took a few years off the clock, too.

Looking a lot like the fighter he was when he ruled the lightweight division a decade ago, the 35-year-old Mosley dominated against a tough southpaw Saturday night on his way to a lopsided decision win.

Mosley knocked Collazo down in the 11th round of the welterweight title eliminator, but it was his quickness that won the fight much the way he won most of his fights before moving up in weight to 154 pounds.

"I knew I was faster than him and could hit him with the quick jabs," Mosley said. "By the third round I knew I would be able to hit him with different shots."

Mosley knocked Collazo down with a short right hand late in the 11th round, but Collazo got up at the count of four and the bell sounded to end the round. It was the only knockdown of the fight.

Mosley has proven his critics wrong with this win.

Not only did he win, but he won very convincing and so he has proven himself to boxing fans everywhere that he is still a force in the sport.
