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.

Remember that look of frustration Shane had on his face late in the Winky fights.................prepare to see it again. I like me some Sugar Shane but he's going to be chasing and getting popped at the same time. Its going to look like Tom and Jerry and we know how that always end. Oh and Shane will be Tom.

Actually, that sounds just about right to me.

Shane, as usual, is going to be eating jabs to the grill all night. That jerry curl juice is going to be flying in this fight.

I like me some Shane Mosley, but not even Brother Naazim will be able to teach Mosley how to avoid that jab. Don't get me wrong, much like the Judah fight, the first 4 or 5 rounds will be interesting and entertaining, but after that, Shane's going to start feeling that monkey on his back again.

Don't be fooled by that Margarito performance.

I will not be shocked at all to see Mosley totally shut down by the middle rounds of the fight.

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.

Meanwhile, the legend of THE Pacquiao will grow after his own dominant win over Clottey, a guy who's coming off a loss to Cotto, THE Pacquiao's last victim.

I'm fucking saying that shit NOW! That's the only reason that Floyd's agreed to this fight. I'm actually shocked it wasn't done for 2012 or 2013, to be honest.

If he wins, fine but it's not like it's a prime Mosley. He's pretty much delayed the shit out of most of the best of the Welters, so now he'll start fighting them and expect full credit for it.

What's he gonna wait for Cotto to get smashed again and then call him out?

Sounds just like what Calzaghe did with Hopkins and Jones. Just remember that an old faded Oscar lost a split decision to Mayweather. I think Oscar showed that Mayweather has trouble with true welters. This will be a great fight either way it goes. Shane has been out of the ring way to long so that is not going to be to his advantage. I think this will be a closer fight than most think ( I hope anyway).

Yeah the layoff is what irritates me. If he wasn't coming off a 15/16 month layoff, it'd be a different story. Because Mosely DID destroy Margo back last January, so while he's not in his prime, he IS still a damn good fighter.

I would have preferred him to have a fight against a decent guy in February, and then them fight in May or June.

But of course with the Jones Jr/Hopkins deal, we have seen what interim fights can do.

I dunno. As I said, I'll give Floyd credit for finally fighting Mosley, it's just hard to give him the ultimate credit for it considering the year and a half layoff just about.

We'll see how the fight goes.

And for the record, in matchups against Mosley/Marg/Cotto/Williams, it's very possible that Floyd beats every single one of those. And it wouldn't shock me if he beat all of them in their prime. People shouldn't mistake my disdain for Floyd due to his asshole attitude and disrespect of his fellow fighters, as me not respecting his skills/abilities.

There's a lot of fighters, who are flat out beasts, but I can't stand them.

Exactly how I see it also. I just wonder how Floyd will react to a true welter is fast and has great power. I have to think of the Oscar fight where Floyd barely escaped with a split decision.
