Default Mosleys jump to fight Oscar

How big was the jump? Was it on Pacs level to jump from light weight to? How big was the win? I was a kid so i don't know the hype/result.



Thanx in advance.

Considering he cheated for that fight, I would say the "win" should be struck from his record.

Not that much, he had a few fights at WW first and was a huge LW. Mayweather at 154 against Oscar is a bigger jump, he'd only had 3 fights at WW where he was small and weighed 148 in the ring

Agreed, if he took epo, I'm sure he took "undetectable peds" his record should be tarnished and consisted a accomplished cheat.

Mosley fought an immensely different fighter who was p4p rated and naturally at welterweight, healthy and strong. Truthfully, he did a better job with Oscar than Trinidad in a lot of our minds, and fought his fight, even though he still only edged it, on my card. The win was much bigger, but it had nothing to do with size, unlike Pac's. Nobody really beat Oscar, to me, until Mosley, even though Quartey came close. Some may have thought Quartey and Whitaker, but he was still hot when Mosley found him, anyway. And nobody had put that much leather into the guy.
Thanks, cleared shit up

People forget that. Shane took a few fights at WW to test the water first.

Pac was HUGE at the lower weights before moving up, regularly fought as a lww at featherweight and lets not forget Oscar was drained down to his lowest weight on the scales for nearly TWELVE YEARS, at 35 years old.

Pac outweighed Oscar on fightnight also.

Also worth remembering Mosley fought oscar at his best weight at the time.

The greatest stunt pacquiao ever pulled was convincing the world he's a midget. He was cheating the scales for years!

Cheating the scales by making weight and then rehydrating, doesnt sound like cheating to me, that just sounds like a familiar story that the vast majority of boxers go through.

Thanx in advance.

Pac's feats are great but he never jumped a weight class to fight the clear cut top guy that weight (who many people had as top-3 P4P). it was a HUGE win and on par with any single win that Pac has.
