Mayweather/Mosley

Call your shots.

I'm expecting a dominating performance by Floyd and a unanimous decision win. 117-111, 117-111, 116-112 type win.

You know what you're going to get from Floyd. Mosley - a little tougher to figure out. Before the dominating effort vs Margarito, which is hard to gauge cause Margarito may not be the Margarito we thought he was without loaded gloves ... Shane's last real quality win was in '03 over DelaHoya, a fight Shane was on roids for. Two fights before that Margarito fight were a unanimous decision loss to Cotto and a very uninspiring win over a shot Ricardo Mayorga ...a fight he was actually down on one of the cards before a 12th rd KO.

Is Shane the guy that annihilated Margarito? Will his size and strength be a factor against Floyd, who has fought a lightweight and a junior welter in his last two fights ... and narrowly defeated an over the hill DelaHoya in his last (only?) fight against a legit fighter coming into the ring at a solid 147 lbs or greater?

Nothing would make me happier than to see Floyd lose. Not happening here though. Floyd will win comfortably, dodge Manny, and fight one of the guys at 140 lbs next. Maybe Khan if he beats Paulie. Prolly not enough money in a fight against the winner of Bradley/Maidana. Margarito could be a wild card next opponent if he looks impressive in his comeback fight. Seems unfathomable, but he brings more dollars to the table than some of the much more worthy aforementioned candidates.

Mayweather's going to be too quick for Mosley. I'm not even sure Mosley lasts for a decision.

I wish it wasn't so damn expensive, cause I think it'd be a waste of money to pay for it. I expect a one-sided fight or a fight where Mosley dances to save his pride and go the distance.

Let me call a friend and see if I can get you a link where you can stream it live from the web. We do it here for good UFC PPVs so I don't have to give Dana White any money. We hook his laptop right up to the big screen.

I'm sure I'll be able to find it on Justin.tv somewhere, but quality is another question.

Both guys in amazing shape. Please let this not be a typical boring Mayweather unanimous decision. Find a way to get to this asshole Shane.

Round one tough to score. SLight nod to Floyd.

Wow ... Shane hurt him.. First time I've ever seen that. Roger Mayweather, most overrated trainer in boxing FINALLY gets tested here.

Floyds round. 29-28 Mayweather, though round one was a total tossup.

Mosely has one of the sports best trainers. Mayweather has his thug uncle. Interesting to see how this plays out.

Shane not throwing any jabs. Looking for kill shots. Needs to establish a jab.

Looks like the Mayweather and Pacquiao talks will be heating up. Pacquiao says that he is willing to do the drug test, but the cut off is 24 days before the fight. I hope it happens. I want to see Mayweather get his butt kicked.

I thought I read something yesterday saying that Manny agreed to unlimited urine tests, blood tests up to 14 days before the fight, and blood tests immediately following the fight. I'll try to find where I read that and link it when I get a second.

These guys just need to get it done at this point. The sport is built on Super Fights, and this is the only potential one out there that the common sports fan gives a shit about. If they can't get it done, both of their reputations have a gray cloud over it (regardless of who is at fault).
