Manny Pacqiao VS Shane Mosley

Posted by LastSonOfKrypton on May 7, 2011 at 1:16 PM

TONIGHT!


While boxing fans still await the 'big' fight that still hasn't happened between Pac-Man and Pretty Boy Floyd (quit DUCKING, PBF!), this match should provide some thrills of its own.


Mosley, 39, is most likely looking at his last chance to compete in a spectacle like this, and despite a lacklustre performance against Sergio Mora in his last appearance (and a loss to Floyd before that), could still provide some fireworks in this one. This fight is important to Shane, as he tries to prove that his illustrious career is not at an end, and even going to so far as to give up his ownership stake in Golden Boy Promotions to make this happen.


Meanwhile, Pacqiao is going in as confident as ever, even going so far as to continue his new tradition of scheduling a performance from his band afterward at a nearby venue. Can't blame Pac, considering every 'challenger' that has stepped to Pac lately has been thoroughly finished by the champ.

 

While I think Pac-Man will prevail, sometimes a great fighter (like Mosley is) will have one more great fight in him. Hopefully it is tonight! I think that Mosley knows this is is last big fight, and will put forth the effort to match that. His hand speed is still there, and so is his power. Antonio Margarito landed some punches since he was willing to trade with Pac, and Mosley will do the same, with more speed and power.  


Mosley comes in with a record of 46-6-1 with 39 KO's, while Pacman comes in with his sparkling 52-3-2 record, including 38 KO's.


Should be a great fight, and will hopefully help to add some shine back to the Sweet Science in the face of continuing rising popularity and takeover by MMA. Hopefully the fight lives up to expectations, but if not, the undercards should provide plenty of entertainment themselves, especially with the inclusion of Kelly 'The Ghost' Pavlik, as he tries to rebound from losing his Middleweight titles in a tough loss in his bout with Sergio Martinez last year. The undercards are:


Wilfredo Vazquez Jr vs. Jorge Arce


Mike Alvarado vs. Ray Narh


Kelly Pavlik vs. Alfonso Lopez


Enjoy!

Any time Pac-Man fights, I follow it. I also hope Mosley can find lightning one more time- particular after his PED controversy a few years back.

I think Mayweather will look to this as if Pac wins he won't accept a fight because Mosley took it to him last time (in my mind) but still ended up winning. And if Mosley wins then Mayweather will say he beat Mosley therefore he "beats" Pac and doesn't need to fight him. So a Pac-Mayweather super fight won't happen yet again

Ark - Yep, in addition to being one of the most talented boxers I have seen, he is also without a doubt one of the most exciting as well! In stark contrast to Floyd's style... Tho I enjoy watching Mayweather bouts as well.

Vap - Who knows, lol. I think at this point, PBF has some legal issues (3 current cases pending, I believe) to take care of first. Then, he can get back to the blood test nonsense...

Mac - Seems pretty likely. He has had his chance to challenge Pac, but always finds an excuse. I do think Floyd is one of the greatest of all time, but his rep for ducking worthy opponents in their prime, or taking only tailor made fights that fit his style, just grow stronger with each dodge he puts forth. I hope to see 'The Fight' someday, but am guessing if it does happen, it will be ala Lennox VS Tyson, both out of their prime and with a W not meaning all that much.... Too bad.

Wasn't sure if there was any boxing fans on Mac App, thanks for the comments and insights boys!

One undercard down.... Nahr pulls p*ss and quits on his stool. Not a knock down battle either, just plain quit.
Picked the wrong sport I guess, lol.

During his prime he was unmatched which bored him but now he is older and Pac is the best pound for pound fighter which would tarnish his reputation if he lost

Pacquiao makes it look easy, again!

I really thought Shane might go out on his shield and leave everything out there, but he played it safe and didn't do much of anything.

After watching that, I am guessing Floyd isn't going to have a change of heart anytime soon...
