Floyd will wait til Mosely gets another couple years older before he'll fight him.


That was the 1st thing I thought! Who knows, maybe PBF might actually try to prove he is all that & fight Mosley!!! I sure hope so!

I remember that and I actually used to ask when did Margarito prove he had an iron chin. It was during the same argument I was trying to have people prove to me that Cintron has great punching power. 2 myths that have no real proof to back them up.


I used to say that about Roy jones Jr when they said he had a A= chin...I was like how do you know when he never really got hit on it! No matter in this case with Margacheato cause it was the body work that Mosley put in that caused his chin to fail IMO!

I think he proved he had a really good chin against PWill and Cotto. Neither one of those guys hits like a girl and they both landed throughout those fights.

I always thought Roy had a good chin too because I saw him take good shots from Montiel Griffin who although not known as a big puncher hit him pretty hard at times. Still it was the really good shot I saw him take from Ruiz that had me thinking his chin was strong. I was pretty shocked when he was KO'd by Tarver but even then it was a shot Roy never saw and those are the ones that really get you.

The thing nobody seems to realize in the PWill fight is that PWill put on a boxing clinic. Like Cotto he never really sat down on his punches in that fight. I think Paul came in there wary of Margarito's power because he was clearly using his reach advantage and clinching Margarito on the inside so he wasn't in there trying to slug with him. I did think Cotto caught Marg with good shots though. Anyway when I asked that question back in the day it was before the Cotto fight which made me look retarded. Then Mosley comes along KO's Margarito and I don't know what to think LOL.

Would be a very good fight and I think it should be made. PBF will make Shane wait though.


At this point, I think Mayweather decisions Mosley competive, but clear. Lets not be fooled by the Margarito fight. Styles make fights.

Well, if Cotto wins a UD against Mosley, why wouldn't a far more accomplished fighter like Mayweather do it? Yes, I'm well aware we're talking about two different fighters with diverse styles. Still, the outcome here is very predictable IMO. I don't care what nobody says. We're gonna see a competitive fight but in the end Mayweather wins a comfortable decision. Truth of the matter is... None of the present top welterweights poses a real threat to Mayweather. The only fighter out there that would ask some really interesting questions to Mayweather is Paul Williams. A fight that will never happen.

the post fight interview was the 1st time i've seen mosley and gayness together and i was shocked at how much bigger shane is. size doesn't mean shane would win but it would be a great matchup. honestly though i think floyd would stink it out against shane and just pot shot him like he did baldomir. before the fight you would hear floyd talk like he's a monster or a gangster as usual then go out there and fight like a richard simmons which is why some fans are sick of his act. if you're gonna talk big be willing to back it up and fight the way you talk. btw i agree with some of the other posts. it is funny how when marquez calls gayboy out he responds but when a tougher foe calls him out he seeks excuses to not fight those oppnents. the funny thing is what did shane say that was so disrespectful? shane said the fans want this fight let's get it on, the fans cheered and floyd acted like shane just dropped kicked his momma! his excuse to not fight shane will probably be because he wants to put an end black on black violence!

The huge size disparity that people saw was more camera closeup positioning on Shane and that fact that shane is probably walking around at close to 165 pounds not being in training, He looked like a middleweight. Mosley is about 5"9 and Mayweather 5"8 Mayweather a 72 inch reach and Shane a 74 inch reach... I think this is the best fight for Mayweather in terms of action, however Mosely will lose because he will be just a step behind in terms of speed... He won't be looking at Margarito when he faces Floyd

I dont think theres any question that Margarito has a solid chin. It has been his MO to take his opponents best shots and clean up at the end. In the Mosley fight, it was the body that started it. Then several rounds of Shane loading up the HUGE right that eventually got him. It showed that Margarito is still just a man. Cotto hit Margarito with everything in the book. Look at Tony's face at the end of that fight. Clottey caught Margarito with a wicked counter early in their fight that stopped Margarito in his tracks. Daniel Santos came in at 180ish and was tagging margarito's head all night in their 2nd fight. No question dude has a tough set of whiskers, but being caught flush with so many hard shots eventually catches up to you, like it did in the Mosley fight...

I see people comparing Cotto/Mosley to what Mosley/Mayweather would look like. If Mosley couldnt beat Cotto, then he cant beat a faster better boxer in Mayweather... Bullshit he cant!! Mosley had to respect Cottos power. He wont have to respect Mayweathers power. Mosley can be as offensive as he wants and will outwork mayweather who'll be retreating all night. If mayweather eventuall stands his ground, which is uncharacteristic of him, he will get blasted out.

I think we know Floyd won't be standing his ground or anything close to it.

The bottom line is that Floyd is too fast for Mosley and Floyd will stay outside and do exactly enough to win each round.
