Who R U Picking? Mayweather vs Mosley Fight

The most exciting boxing bout between undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Sugar Shane Mosley is scheduled on Saturday May 1, 2010. For Floyd Mayweather Jr. his fight against Shane Mosley next month on May 1st might just well be the pinnacle of his career. It’s sad to say, but I think this could be the final really large mega fight of Mayweather’s career. He’s not likely to face Manny Pacquiao in the near future or every because of Mayweather’s demands that Pacquiao take the Olympic style random blood tests, which Pacquiao is totally against and not likely to give into to satisfy Mayweather.

Without a fight against Manny Pacquiao taking place, there really isn’t anyone else with a big enough name to make a huge fight with Mayweather. Heck, it took Mayweather 14 years of his career before he finally faced Mosley. Mayweather probably won’t be taking on any other dangerous fighter like Mosley for the remainder of his career. There really isn’t any big names in the welterweight other than Mayweather, Mosley and Pacquiao. 

The Undercards

Before the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Sugar Shane Mosley happens there will be several top boxing contenders who will show us their skills inside the ring. In the welterweight division, unbeaten Saul Alvarez, 19 years old will fight against the veteran contender Jose Miguel Cotto, the brother of Miguel Angel Cotto in a bout of 10-rounds. In a featherweight match ex-World Champion Daniel Ponce de Leon will fight against Cornelius Lock, also in a 10-round bout. Welterweight Hector David Saldivia will take on Said Ouali in another 10-round bout.

Mayweather - Mosley Score Cards

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a 40 wins 0 losses with 25 KOs record in 5 division championships while Sugar Shane Mosley has 46 wins, 5 losses and 39 KOs in 3 division championships. With their impressive records, the boxing fans are sure to get an exciting fight between two great fighters

For Floyd Mayweather Jr. always makes sure he has an edge on his opponents. If the guy has speed, he doesn’t have the willpower (Judah). If the guy is bigger, he had better be slower or rustier (De la Hoya and Baldomir). Best of all, Mayweather likes to fight guys his size or smaller. Shane Mosley is none of these things, although Mayweather is clearly banking that he is.

For his part, Sugar Shane Mosley might have lost to Cotto, but only two opponents have truly beaten him: Winky Wright and Vernon Forrest. What those two had in common were substantial advantages in height, reach and overall size coupled with a tight point defense. 

Mayweather is a defensive master, but he uses footwork, head movement and the shoulder roll to stay out of trouble. He also is not bigger than Mosley. Ergo, the two things that give Mosley the most trouble are not a part of Mayweather’s arsenal.
