Mosley vs. Mayweather Preview
Floyd Mayweather vs Shane Mosley is a battle of two of the top three fighters in boxing’s welterweight division rankings and two of the top 10 pound-for-pound boxers in the world. This match-up features two men in a highly intriguing match-up that is a suitable replacement to Pacquiao vs Mayweather. The two have missed fighting each other at several occasions as both men have turned down the fight in the past.
This fight certainly does not have the luster of a Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout, however, that’s a fight that could still be lurking in the upcoming months if Mayweather scores a win. Mosley of course was the odd man out of the Pacquiao vs Mayweather talks, and would still love to land a big payday against the Filipino sensation if he scores the upset and removes the 0(zero) from Mayweather’s record.
Sugar Shane Mosley has nothing to lose from this bout. He is enjoying a second or perhaps third wind to his career after most thought he was finished being a top-level fighter. If he loses to Mayweather, he joins a long list of other big name fighters to have done the same and he does so at a time when he was expected to.
For Mayweather on the other hand, everything is on the line. A win and he remains in the discussion as being the best fighter of his generation as he is not really convinced that Pacquiao is the best fighter of all time, and that fight with Manny Pacquiao just may come off. But a loss does nothing but confirm the mumbles of bewildered fans who say Mayweather has avoided top competition and tough challenges throughout the duration of his career.
Mayweather enters the bout with an unblemished 40-0, 25KO record. Of course, Mayweather will be the favorite against Mosley, but Shane has the stamina and condition that will make the fight far from entertaining that his 12 rounds against Juan Manuel Marquez were.
Mosley holding a 46-5, 35KO record, is big and strong and is used to fighting bigger men as well. Mosley is fast, although not quite the dazzling speedster he was years ago. Mosley has power, most recently applying a dose of boxing come-uppance to Antonio Margarito following his illegal hand wrapping faux pas. Additionally, Mosley has an iron chin, and should not be easily deterred by Mayweather’s shots.
Mayweather vs. Mosley Prediction
So how will this fight play out? Mayweather will again use his ring generalship style and tactics and his slowing of the pace.Mosley, on the other hand, goes to shake off his rust as he’s coming off a 16 month layoff and Mosley’s likely game plan to get into Mayweather’s space, be the aggressor and throw lots of punches.
Mayweather adds another Unanimous Decision to his record with this fight. How about you, WHO R U PICKING?
So, Will it be Manny Pacquiao next?
