Yeah! Somehow, people should wonder why Floyd retired in the first place... since he has plans of fighting Mosley anyway.


To be clear, I'll congratulate him on a good win, but it's not like he's fighting the best of the best in their prime here.

I like this energy. Doing a bang up job there Lieutenant!

We'd be unstoppable with THE Hype on our team. We'd have to split it up into a few fleets. CEO's already claiming the captain's seat on one of em.


If Hype joins us, it would take MORE than a nation of millions to hold us back.

and just so you know, Snoop....there can only be one Captain, and that's YOU...I'm totally content as a Lieutenant in the field takin' scalps...

One thing I think the majority will agree on..........FLOYD IS NOT GOING TO STOP SHANE!


and how about this....is everyone in agreeance that Mosley is a tougher opponent than Clottey?

Shane is a much tougher opponent the Clottey. Hell I think this fight will be more competitive than Manny vs. Floyd..............atleast for the first half of the fight that is.

I will give Mayweather credit and think it's a solid win. That said, it doesn't change the fact that Mosley is 37 and not in his prime, so I am aware of that. But there is no way you will see me give Mayweather zero credit or anything. He will get credit from me, but I will not go way over the top.




Would you give Mayweather more credit for a Mosley win or a Pacman win at this point Fitz?

If Golden Boy Promotions really wants to stick it to Top Rank they should call the Mosley-Mayweather fight the "Main Event" because it is much greater than the Pacman-Clottey fight which is called "The Event.

Here's what's funny though...let's say that does happen and Mayweather just dominates Mosley...maybe something like 9-3 or 8-4...will he actually be given credit for the performance or will people say he just picked on an old, faded, 37-year-old Mosley who hadn't fought in 16 months?

My guess is that a lot of people, and you know who you are, will say the latter.

That's exactly how it's going to go and the fact is that Mosley ain't the same fighter he was in his prime - so that's how it should be called.

To be great a fighter has to fight an unbeatable foe like Ali did with Foreman, SRL did with Hagler, ect. And Floyd has had many many opportunities to face those types of guys (Marg, Williams ect.) and he's chosen not to fight them. Now he's fighting a guy who is way past his prime and when Floyd wins in the same manner he beat Baldomir I'm going to point it out.

I'm really surprised that so many people are so excited about this fight. Hell, Shane landed a total of 3 punches in the first round of the second DLH fight. It wasn't until DLH decided to slug with him that Shane was able to hit him on any kind of consistant basis. If DLH can avoid Mosley's punches, Floyd can with ease. The only difference is that Floyd's never going to engage Shane ever.

Why are you surprised? People are excited about this fight because when's the last time Floyd fought somebody? People will simply take this fight, pay for it, and pray that they hit the jackpot - see Floyd get his ass kicked.

The whole point is that we're not going to see Floyd get his ass kicked by the older man. Obviously it's better than anything Floyd's been in since Castillo, but it still not going to be any great matchup because Shane doesn't have the speed to make this competitive and Floyd's going to run all night long. And the thing is that when Floyd wins by decision he's going to act as if he just ko'd Tyson and every excuse maker in the world will absolve Floyd for all the ducking he's done.

If Mosley had a fight in January, I think he would probably be a tougher fight. Coming off of a 16 month layoff, I am not sure that he is tougher fight than Clottey at all - let alone much tougher.

Both fights are interesting, good matchups.
