I'm just trying to point out the disgraceful state of UK fight shows that even an undercard over in Vegas beats it

Overhyped ginger Mexican who is hailed as the next big thing despite him only beating on has beens or b-level boxers (with the exception of Vasquez) V Shot to shit 40 year old who has barely won a round in 3 years.

Sounds riveting

It's an undercard to the biggest fight of the year (so far). The purse for Mosley-Alvarez alone is close to $2m; it should be better than a UK fight show...

I wouldnt say its neccessarily a bad one though either.

A young, green light middleweight who couldnt knock out a euro level welterweight in Mexico who takes punches V a former p4p fighter with a punch and might just be able to roll back the years.

It's probably blind optimism but I wouldnt be surprised if it's an exciting fight!

Thats not the point. He's not in with a Brit fighter, he's in with Alvarez and thats the fight you seem to be raving over.

I was at the Echo a few months back on there were 2 fights on 1 card that were better matchups than Mosely-Alvarez.

Also don't see the point in the thread, we already know that Vegas can have better undercard fights than most British fights due to the fact their is more money their, boxers from all over the world go there, even the top British fighters make their way over there when they rise to the top.

At this stage I'd genuinely favour Kell Brook over Shane. He has looked dogshit against Mora as well, let's not forget.

Shane was one of the best fighters of the last era, but his style has led to him sounding punchy already IMO, and his biggest attribute, handspeed, is redundant as he can't pull the trigger anymore.

He'll have a bomb in him now and then, but at top ten level he appears done IMO. I don't rate Canelo all that much (he's very good obviously) he has poor stamina for one, but he'll have way too much for Shane.

We have to remember this happens to all legends. Losing to guys on the ascendancy. It has happened to Shane now.

Going to be a thriller may even be better than the main event

Its not bad, but the OP is confusing a fight with 2 "name" fighters with a good fight.

I'd even back Hatton to beat him at 147, Brook would kill him. He's an old man who can't pull the trigger any more never mind pull the moves. I would bet that both Hatton and Rhodes did better against the ginger than Moseley will.

If Mosely was a Brit he'd be regarded as a 'God' to most fight fans even at this age, other than Khan not even 1 british guy could give him a decent fight.

Kell Brook is a fraud just another protected fighter fighting journeymen and the likes of Matthew Hatton
