I have a feeling that Ken's notorious glass balls would fail him once again and that'd be it. It's a shame, Ken was quite talented. Just too bad about those glass balls, really.

Buchanan UD15 over Mosley.

Buchanan needs every ounce of his grit to see the final bell. The last five rounds, though, are easier than 7-10 as Mosley fades.

The scots are known for their glass balls.

It dates back to the invention of the kilt and exposure of the sack to the cold Scottish winters...Dozens of generations of scrotal deterioration led to a common genetic trait in the Scottish people.

Mosley beats him to the punch every time and finishes every exchange. If Buchanan were faster I would give him the nod in this as I feel he was a more technically sound fighter.

well mosley's feet are rooted in cement compared to the scot's, much bigger gap there than in handspeed, which will be important as far as in who is actually controlling the initiating of exchanges or jabs in the first place.

I actually think Buchanan was one of the quicker lightweights overall.Certainly around the time of his initial world title fights.He seemed to lose a clear level or two in speed by 73 though.Mosley has maintained his quite well, even if the combinations dried up post-forrest.

I'd have to pick Mosely. Very fast, physical lightweight...

I just love Buchanan's timing in here, Mosley tends to curve his shots a wee bit, I could see Buchanan pumping that jab down the middle and being quite a heavy jab, and with his footwork and foot speed, I could see him sticking and moving and beating Mosley on points. With his movement stifling Mosley's explosive combo's and a snappy left jab muffling them flurries.

At 135 he had fast feet/reactions, no mover but certainly not rooted in cement.

Buchanan probably has the better jab, straighter punchers and better timing but Mosley's speed and reactions make it a real tear up. Kenny has the better defense technically but at 135 Mosley's reaction based defense is pretty good in turn. Ken may mix it up a bit too much and Mosley fights well under those situations, especially as he'd be allot stronger than Ken in there

Slight edge to Mosley but with no real certainty
