If not for the big time which is spent by Manny Pacquiao, and also the latter performances of Shane Mosley, his next match on May 7 in Las Vegas would probably be viewed as a more even fight. Have enough power, speed and experience to give a difficult fight to any rival, and their styles seem to be ideal for each other.
“I’m sure is a great fight because both of us prefer to show and our aggressive styles complement each other. I’m anxious to get involved with the ring and measure forces with Pacquiao, “Mosley said throughout a telephone news conference.
Pacquiao (02/03/1952, 38 KOs) of General Santos City, Philippines, will show his welterweight crown of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), with Mosley (06/01/1946, 39 KOs) from Pomona, California within the mourning star within the Grand Garden Arena MGM Grand hotel.
“I were built with a great training camp. I’m sure it will likely be a great fight with lots of action, one which will control and which I will be victorious, “said Mosley, that has been king lightweight, welterweight and junior middleweight during his career.
Common sense says that the only possibility that Mosley can win this fight is that if he is able to knock out Pacquiao in the first rounds.
“I do not think that my only option. I’ve the problem for 12 rounds and I showed in my career which i have the strength to knock out anyone anytime of the fight, either earlier or later, “said Mosley.
Mosley is one of those fighters that has always remained along with their division, despite its 39 years old, and there is grounds.
“I never stopped working and best prepared me for each fight and this is not the exception. The general public really wants to see exciting fights after i fight and I won’t disappoint. Both Pacquiao and I take risks within the ring and that is what people expect of us. They want to see if we can knock him out, “said Mosley.
On the speed of Pacquiao, that has given so much trouble for his rivals, Mosley is confident that it will not be something type in the fight.
“Antonio Margarito against Pacquiao landed more blows than every other rival recently and I’m much quicker than Margarito. I’m certain I’ll have my chance to connect my punches and hurt him. ”
Mosley hasn’t met the win in his latter fights, a draw against Sergio Mora in September along with a loss to Floyd Mayweather in May.
“I do not think those two fights have connected with Pacquiao, they’re different styles. I do believe is that these two fights solved the problem to obtain this fight with Pacquiao, incidentally how I first viewed it. ”
Coach Mosley, Naseem Richardson, says Pacquiao hasn’t seen a fighter like his pupil.
“Mosley has the ability to knock anyone and change the design and style of anyone. When Pacquiao feel its power, I’m sure will end up a far more defensive fighter and can seek to win your dream with his boxing rather than its power, “said Richardson.
“Shane is a very special fighter and it has faced all of the great boxers of his some time and has proven its value and power each time he steps in to the ring, which time is no exception,” said Richardson.
On Pacquiao, said the experienced coach, “Pacquiao jogs my memory of Aaron Pryor. It has great energy and explosiveness much like Pryor and obviously did hard to become the best fighter on the planet. We should respect and work so getting excited about this training camp. ”
Mosley trained for this fight in Big Bear, California and go Las Vegas next Tuesday.
