Each fighter’s competition has been world-class, so this key prediction criteria is a “push.” In addition, the fight locale of Las Vegas, Nevada offers neither man a discernible advantage. Mosley’s contingent will likely be out-flanked by Pacquiao’s and his legion of Filipino (and other) fans, but he’s no big fight neophyte. The setting will not be unsettling for “Sugar.” Mosley’s major advantage is the fact that he’s the naturally bigger and stronger man, as he’s fought a significant portion of his career at 147 pounds and 154 pounds. Shane also is very adept at utilizing his upper-body strength and vicious body punches while “in-fighting.” If you need proof, look no further than his stoppage of Antonio Margarito. He is also a slightly better defensive fighter.
Manny Pacquiao has said: “I consider this one of my toughest opponents because Mosley is not that slow”. However hardcore boxing fans are not to happy about the fight. And they have reason to be upset, Shane Mosley (39 years old) is way past his prime and has not produced an exciting boxing match in years. Mosley’s last two fight’s have been horrible and he has shown all the signs of an aging fighter. In his (Mosley) fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. we saw his lack of stamina and the amount of punches he throws. Although he did hurt Mayweather Jr. in the second round he did not have the strength or stamina to finish him off.
So why tune in? You ask? I'm a Mosley fan, and I have watched him his whole career. The guy comes to fight, and ready to knock you out, or he will get knocked out. What more do you want in a fighter? You cannot compare this fight to the Mayweather fight. styles make fights. mayweather is a defensive fighter, not offensive. If you know boxing then you know what that means. Mosley will push the fight, and get rocked out in 5-6 rounds giving us a war. Or Manny Pac gets taken the full distance as Mosley has never been knocked out and has only been down his entire career once to the late Vernon Forest. Logic says PAC, but Mosley can shock us again if he has anything left to fight 3 mins of every round. Can the old guy still bang?
Thats why we fight the fights.
