Floyd Mayweather Vs Shane Mosley

Floyd Mayweather Vs Shane Mosley

Just as we are all getting over the fact that the fight between Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao will not be taking place anytime soon, it may now have been a small blessing in disguise! Manny Pacquaio has moved on from the Floyd drama to face Joshua Clottey, which left Floyd open to offers on who his next opponent would be. Shane Mosley was in training to face Andre Berto, but because of Berto losing 9 family members in the Haiti earthquake he had to pull out of the fight, and rightly so.

So now we have both Floyd Mayweather and Shane Mosley with no one to fight, EXCEPT EACH OTHER! This fight is said to be confirmed. The two will meet in the ring on May 1st 2010.

What an exciting fight this will be. This is the fight that many people, including myself, have been waiting to see for a long time. Shane Mosely is a real, full sized, very powerful welterweight, who i beleive will be a very tough fight for Floyd, maybe Floyds toughest fight ever.

This is a superb clash of styles and personalitys. Shane's a quiet guy compared to Floyd, and is also a "come forward" fighter. He will chase Floyd around the ring trying to make a fight out of it. I expect Floyd to fight smart, and not get too involved as usual. Shane still has a lot left, and is still a very fast puncher, which will cause Floyd some big problems. This is the fight that, if Floyd Mayweather wins he should get some credit for. Shane's on top of his game right now, he is also a big welterweight who punches very hard and is widely regarded as one of the best modern fighters out there. Right now he has to be in the top ten P4P boxers in the world. Floyd's definitely got his work cut out, and if he wins this fight he will prove a lot of people wrong, people that think Shane Mosley's always had his number.

The only reason i won't say Shane Mosley will win is because he is not in his prime, his last few fights, although impressive wins, didn't show me much in the way of defense. Shane, as he's aged, has become more of a big puncher then a slick, clever boxer, something that i think he will need to beat Floyd. Floyd's also never been beat, and doesn't know how to lose. And the thought of him losing to Shane, who does have 5 losses, will be enough to keep Floyd's adrenaline pumping for the full 12 rounds. Floyd has commented about this on interviews, saying Shane has 5 losses, why would i fight him..But Floyd forgets that Shane Mosley never ducked anyone, he has faced the best boxers in many weight classes time and time again, so those 5 losses really don't mean that much, and should no way indicate that Shane should be the underdog in this fight. Although I do expect Floyd to win a points decision.

Floyd's style is very hard to crack, he will run and dodge, land his punches, score points, and get out of the danger zone, making it a frustrating nights work for the great "Sugar" Shane Mosley. But if Shane can effectively close the distance, which is a hard thing to do against Floyd, he could have Floyd on the canvas, or in serious trouble with the big punching power Shane Mosley possesses.

I would love Shane Mosley to win this fight, but i see a Floyd Mayweather victory coming by way of a points decision. Floyds just too slick and too smart to get involved and trade big punches with mosely. Mosley, at nearly 40 years old, will get tired chasing Floyd around after 8 rounds, and will be pretty easy for Floyd to hit after that. This will be a tough fight for both guys.

The much awaited fight of the year,mayweather vs mosley. If mosley will overcome floyd mayweather in this fight, he is eager to fight manny pacman pacquaio. But for now, he must train well in order to defeat mayweather. So, I will watch out for this fight and hopefully, the best fighter will win in this match.

if mosley wins he will face pacquaio. great matchup

duke said...

cant wait for floyd to get a beating

Sirius said...

everythings pointing to a floyd win in my opinion. floyds to smart, to quick. mosleys old he will slow down so even if he wins the first 5or6 rounds floyd will end up taking over-winning the fight.

same sorta thing he did against the golden boy oscar delahoya.

the 24/7 show should be fun

Seen some highlights on shane mosleys career. Going on what i seen i would say he has slowed down dramatically as he reached mid 30s. Floyd "money" Mayweather is the best at hitting and not getting hit.

If Shane could win it would make me very happy.

BUT, my money is on mayweather


the sensible choice + profitable choice

cant see mosley beatin floyd, not at his age. mosleys boxing skills are gone, he's now just a powerpuncher. that aint enough to beat floyd, he's far too skilled

rogek said...

Shane Mosleys got a punchers chance. He will be too easy for Floyd to hit tho so i think he could get stopped...If he catches Floyd with a big punch, then follows it up you never know, he could stop Floyd. I want this to happen :-)
