Default Floyd Mayweather jr vs Shane Mosley

Right Sunday morning very big fight, Who R U Picking?

Me after watching 24/7 think Nazim his trainer will play a big part and now think Shane might pull it off.

Lets see.

24/7 is aimed at making fights more interesting and making underdogs look better. Don't believe it. Look at Hatton/Floyd 24/7

Floyd by wide decision/late stoppage

Lack of competition for Floyd may prove his downfall on Saturday night. I have this fight A LOT closer than the bookies do anyway.

Just hoping for a decent competetive bout.

If you can make a case for Margharito using illegal wraps in his fights (he took lots of punishment from Cintron before stopping it, he took lots of punishment from Cotto before stopping it, he was well beaten by Williams who managed to avoid his bombs and was well beaten by Mosely when he DEFINITELY didn't have them) then you can say that Mosely has no realy chance here.

Outboxed by Cotto
Outboxed by MAYORGA ffs
Beat what possibly was a Margharito that hadn't cheated for the first time
And has had well over a year long layoff.

No way IN MY PERSONAL OPINION will Mosely take this

True, but i think even before 24/7, this Nazim guy had me thinking.

You know i think alot of boxing is about mind set and if you really make someone believe that they can do it and get it into their heads then this is half the job. Shane has the tools and with this new direction with Nazim i think he has a chance, more than anyone in the last 6 years of Floyd's career anyway.

Cotto fight was pretty close IMO. Floyd aint fought no one as dangerous as Cotto was at that point

In response to Dan's post, here's Doug Fischer's view and one I subscribe to:

Quote:
No need to cross your fingers. Mosley has the talent, the experience and the toughness, and he’s put in the work with the right people to get the job done.

Here’s my problem with everybody (and it really does seem like 90% of the boxing world brings up the Margarito fight as a reason Mosley won’t win on Saturday) putting an asterisk by Shane’s last fight. NOBODY was saying that Margarito was tailor made for Mosley BEFORE the damn fight.

And now everyone wants to play Sigmond Freud and say that Margarito was mentally defeated before the fight because his trainer was busted trying to load his gloves. OK, fine. Here’s what I’d like to ask of you wannabe psychologists: If you’re going to explain Mosley’s success against Margarito on the Mexican mauler’s mental duress going into that fight then please cut Shane some slack for his shaky performances against Vargas (in the first fight) and Mayorga because he was under some serious psychological stress with his ex-wife’s constant drama.

Hey, it’s only fair.

Me? I give Mosley full credit for whupping Margarito’s ass. And I blame his less-that-impressive performances vs. Vargas and Mayorga on the fact that those bouts took place at junior middleweight and the dudes he fought entered the ring weighing 170 pounds.

I’ve never liked Mosley at junior middleweight. I like him a lot at welterweight.

I LOVE him against Mayweather.

Since the fight was made I have had a sneaking feeling for Mosely, But then think....

Was the Margaritto performance a one off and hes now to old?
Has Floyd faced anyone of this size and speed?

My head is saying Floyd UD but 1/4 on is too short!

But then Floyd has been inactive , Is saturday gonna catch up with him,
I wont be betting on this one, And would love to see Shane do it!!

And Shane was a bigger underdog for Marg 6-1 if I remember right!!

No worries. PBF UD. Shane has success in the early rounds and then Mayweather takes control in the middle and latter thirds of the fight. Not a massively wide decision, but fairly comfortable, IMO.

Losfer, I think it might b the other way round. Shane has ALWAYS done well late in fights. He makes adjustments too, but people conveniently forget this.
