Default Re: Aaron Pryor 31-0 29 KO's vs Shane Mosley 31-0 29 KO's

To me it all boils down to who lands first and who lands more.

I lean towards Shane landing first on the inside and out. His overall speed was greater than Aaron's so he wins that battle. The question is whether he could keep it up, build enough points and slow Pryor down working towards a stoppage.

The Hawk lands more punches with a higher workrate and he's deadly on the inside. Aaron would make it hard for Shane to breath. I think this is the deciding factor in a split decision win for him or a close UD.

It could go either way though, with the probability of both men hitting the floor. I don't see homerun knockdowns from either men from clean shots. I see Aaron going down from a flash knockdown or an off-balance knockdown from a quick Mosely counter. Shane gets dropped to the floor because he might need a break.

12 and 15 rounds, I favour the Hawk to win.
