Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley – May 7, 2011
Hardcore boxing fans are not to happy about Manny Pacquiao’s next match up fight with Sugar Shane Mosley. And they have reason to be upset, Shane Mosley (39 years old) is way past his prime and has not produced an exciting boxing match in years. Mosley’s last two fight’s have been horrible and he has shown all the signs of an aging fighter. In his (Mosley) fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. we saw his lack of stamina and the amount of punches he throws. Although he did hurt Mayweather Jr. in the second round he did not have the strength or stamina to finish him off. Then you have his (Mosley) fight with Sergio Mora which was hard to watch and boring. In the fight there were more people booing than cheering.
Showtime PPV presents one of the biggest fighting events of the year with Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley on May 7, 2011 LIVE on Pay-Per-View from the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Current pound for pound king Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) defends his WBO Welterweight title against former WBA Super Welterweight champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs) in the main event.
Unlike the previous Pacquiao headliner where the undercard features nobodies, it packs some hard punch this time around as former WBC and WBO Middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik, former three weight divisions champion Jorge Arce and WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vázquez, Jr. will strut their stuff.
This makes Showtime PPV’s comeback event since 2005?s Diego Corrales vs. Jose Luis Castillo II a must see!
