Default Don't Sleep on Mosley

Sure sure, he's 38 and Mayweather is maybe the best P4P fighter of the past decade. But Shane Mosley has much more big fight experience and has fought the better fighters by far, and a variety of them. Oscar De La Hoya, twice in his prime, Vernon Forrest, twice in his prime, Winky Wright, twice in his prime, Fernando Vargas, twice albeit past his prime, Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito both in their primes. And, yes, I know he went 5-5 in these fights, but these are much better fighters than virtually anyone Mayweather has faced. And Forrest and Wright were, stylistically, all wrong for Mosley. I think Mosley wins this in an upset. Mayweather's never faced anyone with as much speed, power and skill as Mosley - that much is a certainty.

Mosley's one of my favorite fighters, but Floyd is going to win in a dominant but boring fashion: too young, fast, skilled defensively.

Quite possible. But I don't think anyone has ever ripped Mayweather to the body like Mosley will.

Expose even?

Actually I think it'll be a very close, very exciting fight.

Down to the wire.

I just can't see how Mosley's going to deal with Floyd's style ; unless he fights a super aggressive fight and bulls mayweather. If just stands and tries to box he's going to look very confused.

I think it's going to be a lot like the DLH fight. Shane will try to rip to the body, put pressure on, but Floyd will avoid shots and win rounds again and again. I very much hope to be wrong in my prediction, however.
Great pooch in your avatar, btw.

I have picked Mosley eversince this fight was announced.

In all the interviews, Mosley seem relaxed and composed. Even during the confrontation with Floyd after the Floyd-JMM fight, Mosley appeared composed and confident.

I tihnk deep inside Mosley is very excited for this fight. He has everything to win, and it will be against an opponent who is actually naturally smaller than him. When was the last time that happened?

Mosley UD, and I am putting all my vCash on it

I was not expecting much from that 24/7, but it was pretty good.

Floyd Sr was bustin some old school moves on the dance floor.

mosley gotta due everything dlh did but better, and that shouldn't be hard since he's better than dlh. he has to use that jab. has to go to the body and take away that speed, has to find a way to get inside, and make it real rough and dirty like a street fight, and make pbf uncomfortable and desperate.
