Shane's gonna get wrecked, won't even be good I don't think.

It'll go the distance, Mosley's pretty good. Pac-man wins majority

pacman will ko Mosley in the 7th round.

Really curious about Mosley's stamina. He didn't look too great in his last two fights, would he be able to keep up with Pacquiao's punch output? I don't really think so. Mosley tends to drop his arms a lot when he starts getting tired and that's something you definitely want to avoid infront of Pac.

A good jab can give pac lots of problems if used properly but lately Shane's have been pretty stiff. My guess is Pac will probably focus on the body in the early rounds then go for the head after round 4 or 5.

Not sure if it will end with a KO though, Mosley can take some pretty good punches and he still has a puncher's chance to get a KO himself.

Sorry, guess I should've answered your question in my previous post. It's on PPV so you'll have to pay to watch it.

Pacquiao just got into a car accident. The article isn't very clear though. The title says he's injured but when you read the body it doesn't mention anything about injuries.

EDIT: ESPN makes it sound less severe

Pacquiao dominated all 12 rounds. Not a very exciting fight though. Mosley didn't take any risks what so ever in that fight.

The fight was $50 to order.

i went to my friendshosue and saw it

That was not worth the purchase. Shane just wanted to survive and went on the defensive for most of the fight after getting knocked down on the 3rd.

Aside from Mayweather there aren't really any fighters left I'd want to see Pac fight. He could go after Sergio Martinez but that means Pac would have to climb up to middleweight. Maybe Marquez? or Victor Ortiz? but those could be one sided as well.

If Mayweather isn't coming out to fight (and I doubt he will) I think Pac should just hang em up.

EDIT: Looks like Mayweather might be fighting Victor Ortiz in August. Should be pretty interesting considering that Victor is a high volume puncher, but all he throws are power punches. He might be easily picked apart by Mayweather's counter punching.

boxing is dead after the mayweather and pacquiao era is over, the less corrupt UFC has taken over and being pay-per-view only for big matchups was a stupid move
