Talks Stall for Mosley, De La Hoya

Negotiations for a third Shane Mosley-Oscar De La Hoya fight are at a standstill, Mosley refusing to take an appreciably smaller purse than De La Hoya after beating De La Hoya twice.

Mosley, instead, is leaning toward fighting Ricardo Mayorga in March, assuming Mayorga beats Corey Spinks next month.

De La Hoya might then fight Fernando Vargas in June, assuming Vargas beats his next two opponents, Tony Marshall next month and Javier Castillejo on Feb. 21.

If Mosley and De La Hoya both win, they could meet next November.
