This fight boils down to Shane Mosley's jab. If he uses it then Berto's in for a long night (perhaps a short one when the right hand follows). Mosley has a 3 inch arm length advantage... I dont think Naz is overlooking that.

If he doesnt use the jab then Berto can make it a good fight smothering Shane with his mma tactics.

1. Mosley has been frustrated that none of the big names would fight him.

2. Berto has talked some serious shit to Mosley.

3. Mosley is probably even more frustrated that GBP hasn't promoted his fight properly...


You do NOT want a focused, pissed off Mosley comin' after you...unless you're an Elite, PURE boxer....and Berto doesn't fall in that category.

His grunts and flash won't serve him well against a fighter of substance like Mosley.


So in summary...IF he hasn't gotten extra old, this reconditioned, angry version of Mosley is gonna run through Berto by the end of the night....

Mosley has never had a good jab so I don't expect him to all of a sudden outjab Berto. There are a lot of things that still make him dangerous though, his bodyshots, his stamina, the recent Hatton "clinch t'ill you flinch" style that wears opponents down and according to Mayweather: Extra help from the lab.

Berto though, is a good counterpuncher with faster hands than Mosley. He too posseses an abundance of energy and against Collazo, displayed the heart to finish strong. Give me Berto by decision.

Mosley doesnt have a dominating jab, but when he uses it its "good enough" because of those other attributes you mentioned. He worked his jab in the Collazo and Margarito fights pretty well. He completely abandoned his jab against Cotto and that probably cost him the fight. He can outjab Berto because Berto has even less of a jab imo, probably due to his short arms. If Mosley doesnt commit to his jab he will find it difficult to keep up with Berto's faster hands.

I think this is an easy fight for Mosley. I like Berto and all but he make too many fundamental mistakes to pose a real threat to an elite fighter like Mosley. He been getting away with it b/c he havent really fought anyone outside of Collazo maybe. Plus his defense is a little suspect making it easy for Mosley to land, and Im not too sure he can take Mosley power. Regardless of the turn out tho, I do think it will be a good ass fight.. and if Mosley come in the ring half stepping then he will get his ass whooped cuz Berto is hungry!

You are correct, he is inconsistent with his jab. In one fight he is outjabbing DLH then in the 2nd he is being outjabbed. Even if his jab is OK I don't think it's the type of punch that's going to swing things his way. His overhand right on the other hand...

There has been a lot of "protect the O" of the undefeated fighter. I have a vision that if it goes to the cards and even is remotely close, they will somehow give it to Berto. This could be like the Collazo-Berto fight for Shane.

My take is Berto by Majority Decision.

114-114

115-113

115-113

When the better scoring based on what happens in the fight will be an OK 114-114 card, but the press row will think that the 115-113 cards should go to Shane.
