Sad as it is, I actually can imagine Mosley winning this fight. I hope it stops with imagination.

I know that what he did against Alvarez was close to nothing but Malignaggi is small WW and doesn't have the power to Ko someone - which is the best way of sparing the audience of yet another most boring fight of the year candidate.. Mosley has got a good chin on him anyways so I wouldn't be worried about that even against a bigger puncher. If Shane doesn't bring at least 1% of that beast he once was, we are in for a boring, shell-shocked, bro hugging performance.
Paulie's main weapons should be his jab and craftyness that he brings to the table. Footwork and good ring generalship should serve him well too. Good thing Paulie can take a punch as well.

The chances are slim for Shane, but...what IF ??!!

All bs aside, this is a terrible matchup. If a non-deserving Mosley really wins and gets a title...ima hang myself.

Your thoughts?

Looks like Paulie wants Maidana! Wasn't this fight supposed to happen back in 2011, when they were trying to make Alexander/Malignaggi? I believe so...I just remember thinking..."Aw man, Paulie's gonna die in there, if they make this fight".

One thing I've always liked about Paulie, is his willingness to fight any and every body. He was actually fed to a few fighters, and did better than anticipated. I just dont like his lack of punching power, but oh well.

It looks like he wants more money than he's already getting, according to Shane's statements on the front page. At this point, I just want Shane to go away, and stay away. It's sad, because we've seen this dude whore for big paydays and damn near beg for fights, for at least the past 5 years.

It's getting old, and Im ready for him to retire for good. I wasn't all that excited about a Malignaggi/Mosley fight, but I wasn't completely against it either.

The crying and bitching Mosley had been doing is pathetic. No one wants to see him fight. No one! If Paulie can say fuck you then you know you hit rock bottom. I think Mosley should stick to training, no one will fight him, no one. I think Marcos and Paulie is a great match, I think Marcos will punish Paulie for 9 rounds before sending him to Showtime to be a full time announcer. The boxing gods have answered one of my prayers let's see if they can answer the other 5.

I have to agree with you here.

Gotta respect Shane's career, but the whoring for big paydays at the end, wasn't a good look at all. Paulie may not be able to beat a top WW, but hell, most of the current WWs are B+ fighters, and they cant even beat a guy at their level...so I cant say that he wont go into those fights without a chance.

I like Maidana more nowadays...as long as he can repeat and maintain the same performance from the Soto-Karass fight. I missed his old "slug it out" days, but the boxer-like mentality should keep him around longer.

Old slugger or now boxing style, Maidana murders Paulie...too much balls, not a care in the world about getting hit, and a newlt adopted boxing style= nightmare for Paulie.
