Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley – May 7, 2011
Hardcore boxing fans are not to happy about Manny Pacquiao’s next match up fight with Sugar Shane Mosley. 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. Then you have his (Mosley) fight with Sergio Mora which was hard to watch and boring. In the fight there were more people booing than cheering.
Unless someone I know orders this Pay Per View fight, I am going to wait till they rerun it the following week on cable. I will not waist my money on this bullshit fight. This has to be one of the worst Manny Pacquiao match ups to date. But that wont stop Top Rank and Bob Arum to hype up and sell us on the fight, they will show us video clips of Mosley’s highlights and him hurting Mayweather Jr. trying to make us believe as if Mosley has a chance against Pacquiao. And guess what, the casual boxing fan will fall for it and purchase the PPV fight. Boxing matches like these (Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley) is what’s hurting the sport of boxing.
Manny Pacquiao advisor admits Shane Mosley fight will gas out quick
Below is video of Manny Pacquiao advisor Michael Koncz even admitting the fight will only be competitive for 5 rounds. Which I think they are giving way too much credit to Shane Mosley, he will be out of breath by the third round. I see Shane Mosley playing “Freeze Tag” (if you’ve seen Mosley’s latest fights you know what I mean) with Manny Pacquiao for the entire fight. I predict Sugar Shane Mosley corner stopping the fight early.
Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2 38 KO)
Shane Mosley (46-6-1 38 KO)
This fight will be taking place at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
