It was just announced on FNF that Mayweather-Mosley is a done deal!

It's ON!!!


(Admin Note: A Prediction Poll Has Now Been Added to The Thread! Cast Your Vote, Now!)

Also note, if there are few to no objections and people seem to like it, we will plan to add a "Close or Wide decision" in the polls that we create from now on. This can even better help assess how our users see the fights.

I think floyds career post 140 has been pretty shonky.

Sure shane is past it, but he is still dangerous. Mayweather will be facing the top guy in his division, the best that division has to offer at that time. And that is all you can really ask for.

I think shane will give floyd serious problems, given his size, speed and power. Great fight.

I really hope shane doesnt follow the oscar and hatton gameplan of pure pressure, because that is a mistake. Floyd will go into a defensive shell, conserve energy, and pot shot more and more as the fight goes on. Shane needs to box, much like zab did for the first 4 or 5 rounds. And as floyd settles into a rythm, change it up and attack in spurts to unsettle him. Variety is the key, no single gameplan will suffice

The only problem I have with that is I don't think Shane's got the speed to box with Mayweather. Zab (I can't believe I'm saying this) is probably the only guy Mayweather ever fougth that is faster than him, hence his eraly success, that and I don't think he likes southpaws, (certainly not as much as Hard Nard). I'm not sure if Shane can afford to get into a boxing match with Floyd.

Still I take your points and this is why it will be an interesting fight, I think at some point we're gonna get something that we don't expect to see.

The things i am counting on in my initial assessment are that shane has a two inch reach advantage on zab, meaning he can throw first as floyd tries to come into range, the fact that he has a faster brain than zab, and the chin advantage. Shane may not be as fast as floyd, or judah, but he is right up there in terms of speed. He can box, so long as he effectively uses that reach. The reach can offset the speed deficit if used correctly, and with his exceptional chin he can afford to counter punch with impunity

The problem with an in fighting strategy is that floyd will just skate away. And the problem with pressuring is floyds defence, he just avoids the pressure and counters. But if mosely holds back a little, and forces floyd to come forward more, he can capitalize in the holes created when floyd throws. Much like zabs counter which dropped floyd as he jabbed to the body. As good as floyd is, throwing punches opens defensive holes in anyones game.

Unfortunately, i dont see them using this strategy. I think they will make a mistake and try and make it a "rough" fight. This will fail
