'SUGAR' SHANE MOSLEY: "Dogfighting Is for Cowards. Don't Do it." New PETA Ad

Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley are both ready to display their punching power on the ring on May 7, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (Manila Time - May 8) but before the big event, "Sugar" Shane Mosley is speaking out against Dogfighting in a new PETA campaign in which he poses in the ring alongside the words:

"I Choose to Fight. Dogs Don't. Dogfighting Is for Cowards. Don't Do it."
Mosley explains, "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. Dogfighting isn't like that." He concludes, "Dogfighting is dirty, it's cruel, and it's a loser's game."

Dogfighting is a vicious blood sport that leaves animals mangled and maimed. Even though it is illegal in the Philippines, dogfighting continues to thrive and is kept hidden from public view. PETA has seen dogs after they were forced to fight—they are left ripped apart, bloody, soaked in urine, unable to walk, and covered with cuts, bruises, and scars. The "losers" of these fights are often killed by their handlers.

Mosley joins a growing list of athletes and other celebrities—including Tito Ortiz, Ron Artest, Michael Strahan, Mac Danzig, Carey Hart, and many more—who have teamed up with PETA to speak out against animal abuse.
