|Floyd Mayweather & Shane Mosley|
The two boxer's charities are The Floyd Mayweather Foundation and Sugar Shane Mosley's Diamond Love Foundation. The event will be in conjunction with the 'Ring Kings' mega-fight on May 5th, where Mayweather takes on light-middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and Mosley faces young and powerful Saul Alvarez.
"Spring Of Style" is expected to be a high profile event and the tickets will cost around $75. Fashion previews and other entertainment will be available. The sponsors of the event are Mayweather Promotions, Philthy Rich Records, Regal Management, Shane Mosley Promotions and Mr & Mrs 'T-shirt Lifestyle Brand'.
“I am committed to giving back to the community and this fundraiser will assist my foundation’s continued efforts to do so,” said Mayweather. “Shane and I are both fighting for our careers in the ring, but we are blessed to be in a position to help those less fortunate and support causes outside the ring too. I know the entire boxing world will be in town for my fight and I expect a great turnout for the event.”
Shane Mosley, who lost to Mayweather in 2010 is also very happy to be helping the less-fortunate.
“I am thrilled to be a part of this fight and have the opportunity to work with Floyd outside of the ring to support our charities,” said Mosley. “We both feel strongly about helping at-risk youth so the two of us coming together to better the community is a great opportunity.”
This is a great thing for the sport of boxing. Not very often do we get two big ring icons that team up and host a charity event together.
