MANILA, Philippines - Former welterweight champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley says he is not yet ready to retire, even after being routed by pound-for-pound king Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao last May.

Mosley's performance against Pacquiao was widely criticized, as Mosley went on defensive mode for most of the night after being knocked down in the third round.

But Mosley says he is still good for at least two fights.

"Yeah, I'll definitely be back. I got to fight a couple of more times, I still got it in my blood," Mosley said in an interview with Diamond Boxing.

Mosley wants to fight the winner of the rematch between Antonio Margarito and Miguel Cotto, and is also eyeing IBF weltwerweight champion Andre Berto.

Mosley now has a 46-7-1 win-loss-draw record. His last win was against Margarito in 2009, a ninth-round technical knockout victory that made him the welterweight champion.

But since then, he has lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr., been held to split draw by Sergio Mora, and lost in disappointing fashion to Pacquiao.
