When Manny Pacquiao, the world’s greatest boxer of this era, fights Shane Mosley on May 7 2011 in MGM Grand Las Vegas, there is little doubt left that Mosley cannot go past 3 rounds in this warm-up match of Pacquiao.
Mosley, if you may remember his last fight with chicken-little Floyd Mayweather Jr, was just dodging fists and was never on attack mood. He could have sent Mayweather to the canvas during the first 5 rounds but Mosley was just dancing and evading Mayweather.
If that is the kind of boxing style Mosley would use against Manny Pacquiao, Mosley will suffer terrible defeat – a repeat of tragic fate that of Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto.
Manny Pacquiao is too fast and strong for Mosley, who is aging and deteriorating. This fight is just for money-making purposes for the promoter. Not really earth-shaking, but enough to gather thousands of fans who just want to have a glimpse of boxing genius Manny Pacquiao.
