Shane Mosley Wife Gets Championship Belts in Divorce

7/14/2011 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sugar Shane Mosley has been forced to give up 3 championship belts -- to his wife ... in his divorce!


TMZ has obtained Sugar Shane's divorce settlement documents and -- if you've been divorced -- we're betting his is a lot different.

The settlement provides that ex-wife Jin "shall maintain custody and control of three championship belts for each of the respective parties' three minor children."  Each of the kids get a belt when they turn 18.

And Jin will get half of Sugar Shane's cut of profits from videotapes and DVDs of his big fights, including bouts with Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto and Fernando Vargas.

Since the divorce was filed in California and community property rules apply, Jin gets half of Sugar Shane's fight purses during their marriage.  But luckily for Sugar, his big fight against Manny Pacquiao was held after the couple separated, so his $3 mil is his alone.

And get this ... the couple accumulated 854,410 American Express points during their marriage, and she gets half.   To put that in perspective, for Jin's 427,205 points, she can buy either an industrial generator or a 10-speed bike.

Different? No, this type of bias is very typical, in California un-Family Court.

Guys, stop being ******* idiots and stop getting married there is no benefit to it. Look at Shane Mosley and countless others. I point out shane because what this judge did is rediculouse. Thats like giving the championship ring to the wife in divorce, where's the cut off end, It's hard to earn that money and while mosley is getting punch in the head and fighting his wife is looking pretty, shame on this judge and I hope he rots in hell where those who make these type of mistakes belong..

OK people - is anyone reading and comprehending? She has to keep the belts until the kids turn 18!! Hello out there! Meaning she doesn't get to sell them or profit from them in anyway shape or form. Why do you people keep writing about it as if she "stole" the belts from him or is gaining something from having the belts? She is simply a conservator of the belts until the kids are o****e. WTF - it's like no one understands English.

And this is why we need to fix our legal system. I love how sooo many women didn't have jobs or work before they met their husband but then the divorce them and can get half their money even though they brought nothing in. It's a joke and men should boycott marriage!

He won the belts; they're his forever, unless he loses them to another boxer in the ring. The judges in the US are certifiably insane.

The lesson: if you're wealthy marriage is a bad idea, right up there with jumping out of a plane without a parachute on your back -- and the man always gets scr#wed.

If you're poor, divorce is far worse; it's very biased against fathers, and a poor man doesn't have the money to spare.

I agree she deserves some money for stay along his side as a good wife as everyone including shane agreed upon. However, belts, royalty money from his brain damage activities should not be reward to her at all. HE was the one who sweated them and just because she sweated somehow in bed does not give her ownership on his well deserve belts and royalties. She is low for taking those as part of settlement. i hope Shane finds happiness on his life because it is certain that she could not make him happy at all, does that should count on all this?
So many of this high profile cases just make you realize two things. There is no doubt that so many women out there are nothing but gold diggers and another is that unless she is a very successful woman I am getting a prenup not matter what!
It does make any sense to get this much money and lose it just for having sex and company from someone for few years. You can get that from any other women at a cheaper rate and way less nagging.
