Arum: Mosley not likely to fight Pacquiao

Shane Mosley, who showed his age and the wear and tear of 53 professional bouts and 376 live rounds against the listless Sergio Mora on Saturday, did not help his standing in the Manny Pacquiao sweepstakes.

That's the word from Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum, who was busy with religious observance on Yom Kippur and did not view the bout live.

Asked on Sunday if he'd read the less-than-glowing reports of the controversial draw, Arum gave little reason to expect a Mosley-Pacquiao showdown.

"I did and I read them saying Mosley was huffing and puffing for air in the fourth or fifth round," Arum said. "To me, that is the real tipoff for an aging fighter. Even Big George Foreman did that in his 40s but he always had that big, big punch like in the (Michael) Moorer fight.

"What I've read is not very supportive to make any Mosley-Pacquiao bout. Look, he's going to be 40 and he's in the lighter weights where speed is so important. He's on a show with guys -- example, 20-year-old Saul Canelo Alvarez -- old enough to be his son.

"I guess Shane needs the money due to his matrimonial sitaution (a divorce under harsh California community property rules)," Arum said. "I've always considered Shane to be a nice guy but this is what happens to fighters when they age.

"It's like (Bernard) Hopkins, he still knows how to fight but who wants to pay to see him now? His fights are not very scintillating. What you see with Hopkins we're beginning to see with Mosley."

I'm no Pac fan, but to dismiss him as hype is stupid and ignorant.

He fought a bad fight, no question. But with anyone else in front of him, it would have looked different.

What else could Clottey have done? Clottey fought a clottey fight, and he got swamped with punches, it's a simple as that.

This was what I alluded to before. If Pacquaio is all hype, then Morales, Barrera, JMM, Sasakul, Cotto and Clottey are **** fighters. Good call OP.

Floyd will be known as a coward in 10-15 years watch.

If Bob Arum wasn't involve, the fight could have happen!

Not a huge fan but this is unfair, he's a damn good fighter that reached his limit. His contributions and accomplishments speak for themselves.
