Default Re: Why do Fans give Shane Mosley a Pass for Steroids.

What does age have anything to do with Mosley's statement? Mosley said, "I've never felt power like that before." I think a hall of fame boxer (like Shane Mosley) can tell the difference between an opponent's power and his own mistake of not getting out of the way quick enough (which is what you're saying).

So, again, let's try to be somewhat objective. On one side we have Shane Mosley, a first ballot hall of fame boxer with an indisputable boxing resume, making a statement regarding Manny Pacquiao's punching power, "I've never felt power like that before." Now, in the context this statement was made, Shane does not mention that he believes the power he felt had to do with his age or his ability to "get out of the way," as you suggest.

Then we have you, a random user on a boxing forum, "thesandman." Somehow you feel qualified and educated enough to understand Shane's statement better than Shane himself understood it. For whatever reason, you think you know better than Shane Mosley regarding boxing (the hall of fame boxer).

Man, you should be a ****ing boxing ****yst or something, because jesus christ you know better than Shane Mosley does. What the **** are you doing wasting your intellect and abilities on a boxing forum?

God you are stupid as a rock. You, stupid as a rock? Well, given my first post, about the whole Manny Pacquiao fans being uneducated thing... yeah, it's all making sense now

And by the way, your hero, Manny Pacman Pacquiao, is or was juicing. Sad story bro
Pacman is not my hero. He's good, but I don't care if he wins or loses, I just like watching him fight. But no more or less than watching a lot of fighters fight.

And before you go on calling people dumb as rocks, this is the actual quote from Mosley.

“Manny’s very unpredictable so he had strong shots," said the former three-division champion. "Shots I’ve never felt before.”
So, he didn't say Pac was the most powerful fighter he'd ever fought.
He didn't say "I've never felt power like that before." At least not that I can find.

You think everything that every Hall of Fame boxer says is true? You don't think they sometimes stretch the truth? Sometimes say things to stroke their own ego, make guys that beat them seem better, make guys THEY beat seem really good to increase their own standing?
