The stars will be out at MGM Grand in Las Vegas for this year’s most touted Boxing match. Floyd Money Mayweather Jr. (40-0, 25 KO) vs. Sugar Shane Mosley (46-5,39 KO) will take the ring with the WBA welterweight championship belt on the line.
The makings of this fight all started after Money Mayweather dominated one of boxing toughest Mexican fighters in Juan Manuel Marquez. During his post interview fight, Mosley climbed in the ring to call out Mayweather, which eventually turned into a shoving match laced with trash talk. Though nothing came of that incident, talks soon sparked when Andre Beto pulled out of a scheduled WBC/WBA title unification fight with Sugar Shane, due to the loss of several family members in the tragic Haiti earthquake.
HBO award winning documentary series 24/7 has been chronicling the two fighters and their camp leading up to the fight and there is no love lost between these athletes. Mayweather and his trainer/uncle have found a way to mention Mayweather admitted to using HGH, while Mosley insist every chance he gets Floyd is a soulless money grubber.
These two fighters are similar in a lot of ways. Both utilize their speed to move and counter. Mosley will undoubtedly be the fastest fighter Mayweather has faced, but I don’t see Floyd losing this one, unless Don King somehow is involved. Maywheather in the 10th is my prediction.
Like either fighter or not, this will be one of the biggest fights and pay per view draws in boxing history. On a personal note, I got the BBQ Pitt ready to fired up and the Keg goes on ice tonight.
