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?

I'll be honest. Paulie, love him to death as a fighter. Great commentator too. He was in the right place at the right time when he got the WBA 147 pound belt. If Berto and Ortiz had been in the picture, we wouldnt even be talking about Paulie and a 147 pound belt. He's smallish for the weight and has literally NO power. Thats why he can afford to turn Mosely down. Everyone at 140 and 147 wants this fight because it is so winnable for most of the top guys. Thats why Mosley targeted him. Its a no brainer for Mosley. Its another opportunity to get a belt and ANOTHER big fight behind it. Malignaggi is the path of least resistance for all at 140 - 147. Surprised Amir Khan isnt jumping all over this one. Wouldnt shock me if mayweather picks Paulie. Paulie is at the center of the 140-147 universe. He can pick and choose who he will surrender his belt to, because he WILL surrender it.
