He's fighting a HOF middleweight AT middleweight. If Cotto never had a chance, then the Manny fight is pointless also.


middleweight?

Mosley is Gatekeeper status at this point. Short of a knockout there is now way he wins this fight. Even if he did who would he fight next? No ones buying a mayweather rematch, ditto for a pacquiao rematch. Forget Berto because if he beats Ortiz there will definitely be a trilogy. If Cotto beats Mayweather u know there's gonna be a rematch there.

Who's left? He'll just be cashing out against a much bigger Martinez and boxing fans will know that, and Chavez Jr. is on a quest to go 80-0-1 against B fighters. I cant see anything but a Canelo victory here.

Actually, nothing has happened to "unjustify" the notion that Mosley should be written off since the period just before his fight with Margarito. And no, Mosley's victory over Margarito, although a good one, should not and does not count for much, in my book. I say this because, the moment that handwrap atrocity by Margarito was discovered by Richardson just before the fight and the scandal broke, there was no way Margarito could have surmounted the resulting and towering psychological trauma and win the fight. Forget about Margarito's bravado on that night - or indeed any other night since. Mosley was, in my view, a very fortunate man indeed that night.

As it has since turned out, every subsequent fight since, has further cemented the notion that Mosley is no longer an elite fighter. I don't expect this to change in the course of Mosley's fight with [Canelo] Alvarez.

P34c3

Canelos chin is not hard to find. He got put down by a less than stellar puncher in Jose cotto. If he let's mosley build any sort of confidences ill say he will be in some trouble if mosley actually shows up trying to win... I know gpb is putting him in there as a stepping stone but what if mosley is looking at it as one last showing before he retires? Ya never know

Actually, if Berto beats Ortiz, then it wouldn't hurt him to fight Mosley (in the event that Mosley beats Alvarez). Look at it this way, how many HOFers does Berto have on his resume? *hear the crickets chirping?*

So, fighting Mosley AFTER he beats Alvarez would be perfect timing. This way, it "appears" that Mosley still has something in the tank, and has enough to take on some top B-level fighters...fighters like Berto of course. Berto will be "tested" by a HOFer who has one foot out of the door, but still has enough to compete.

Now, if Shane loses to Canelo, then Berto fighting him, would do him no favors.

Martinez should have been pushing to face Mosley when the iron was still a bit hot...really around the time that Mosley fought Mora. That would have been my suggestion, but I guess money talked somewhere along the line. I believe the only reason Sergio moved up was for money fights and a MW title, and Im sure he could've still made 154.

I dont see Shane moving up to MW, probably not gonna happen. He mentioned a rematch with Margarito or Cotto, but that was last year. He can fight guys like Kirkland, Molina, but overall, you're right, there's not much at 54...maybe a Clottey fight. Not much money there...

Not sure about that. Terry Norris is in the HOF and if u match his and Cotto's credentials, Cotto's are a bit more favorable. Granted, Norris was a good fighter himself.
