Default More "Shot" Fighter: 33-Year-Old Judah Or 38-Year-Old Mosley?

Who was the more "shot" fighter, the 33-year-old Zab Judah that Amir Khan dominated or the 38-year-old Shane Mosley who shook-up Floyd Mayweather, Jr. before losing a lopsided decision?

Judah had won 5 straight fights heading into his showdown with Khan. In Judah's last fight pre-Khan, he knocked out Kaizer Mabuza to to win the IBF 140 pound belt.

Mosley had gone 2-1 in his three fights leading up to the Floyd Mayweather, Jr. showdown. He lost to Miguel Cotto, was struggling with Ricardo Mayorga before knocking Mayorga out in the final round, and Mosley destroyed an illegal-handwrap-tainted Antonio Margarito to win the WBA 147 pound title.

Poll above and leave your thoughts below.

Mosley. Mosley couldn't pull the trigger at all.

Zab, in his last few fights, sort of showed that he still could.

They should have shot each other before last nights debacle of a title unification bout.

Agreed. I felt that Mayweather was smart and caught Mosley -- a fighter I thought Mayweather had been ducking -- at just the right time.

That is, the Margarito fight made Mosley "marketable" again, even though his skills had clearly declined, in my opinion.

So, Floyd could fight him as a "viable" opponent, yet know that Mosley was on the downside.

To me, it's similar to the Victor Ortiz fight for Floyd: The Berto fight makes Ortiz seem legit, but Floyd knows that Maidana still 'broke' Ortiz and Peterson drew with Victor just two fights ago. But, to the public -- and especially the Latino fans that Golden Boy is hoping will buy the fight -- Ortiz is now fully "rehabilitated."

Smart business moves by Floyd.

Judah is Shit.

That is the difference.

Let's see those two get it on next, and we can make a better assertion.

I'd watch it.

He didn't look that way the first 4 rounds against Mayweather.

The only person who had handled Judah before at 140 pounds was Tszyu. Until Khan rolled Zab.

This. Judah is mentally shoddy. Shane couldn't do what he wanted his body to do

Stick to the topic dude. Once again that Mayweather guy is mentioned. Your avatar is a dead give away. Don't use this thread to downgrade the Floyd guy. I know its hard to resist, but downing Floyd doesn't lift Pacquiao or vice versa. Yeah, yeah, you said it was a smart business move by Mayweather but we see your motive.
