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.

Not quite done,

However, Fightnews is reporting that a verbal agreement has been reached for them to fight on May 1st. No contracts have been signed yet. Both have agreed to Olympic Style drug testing for the fight.

Joe Tessitore said just a few minutes ago that it was a done deal now. The way he said it made it sound like everything is 100% done.

As long as this fight's on, we can all forget about hypocrisies such as this:

Floyd only wants to be sure of an even playing field no matter who he fights, Ellerbe said.
Spyder
The ever positive JD was right...lol...we might just see three good fights out of that whole drug testing debacle!

It was announced LAST WEEK by FightHype.com that Mayweather-Mosley was a done deal...but hell...what do we know?

laugh.gif

Look, this fight has BEEN a done deal for quite some time...it was basically done the minute that Andre Berto "pulled out" of his fight with Mosley. The ONLY reason why it has yet to be announced...or should I say the only reason why pen hasn't been "put to paper" yet is because nobody involved wanted it to look like they were using the catastrophy in Haiti to their advantage.

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.
torvix2000
Mosley is being given his chance this time. He should do his part. He upsets Floyd and he gets huge money against Pac!!!
Byrd Man
While this is the fight I wanted to see, not the Pac/May fight, I'm still not buying this fight going forward, until they are both in the ring, the bell sounds, and one of them hits the other.

I've been burned too much in the past, to accept that this is going to actually happen.

Would have been nice if it was earlier, and Mosley wasn't coming off a 15 month layoff by the time they get in the ring, but hey...with Floyd I guess we gotta take what we can get.

LOL! That's a very different fight. Mosley was punching a bigger man. Mosley's gonna dislocate Floyd's shoulders into his mouth if he doesn't run.

If he run? You mean when he ride right? We bout to see his best Lance Armstrong impression! That bike will be moving and shooting at the same time. Shane will barely touch him.

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?

dntknw.gif

My guess is that a lot of people, and you know who you are, will say the latter.

laugh.gif

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 really don't like this fight for Shane. He'll be coming off a 16 month layoff, and that's way too long a lay-off for Shane. He's going to be rusty, and Floyd will give him fits. Mosley isn't a runner, and even though he's super fast, he likes to come forward. I think this will play right into Mayweather's hands, and he'll be able to jab him and move away all night. I don't think it will be that interesting, even for the first four rounds. Mosley will be rusty, and it will take him a few to get going again. Mayweather still had a lot of speed, and he's faster than Shane. It's going to be a rough night for Mosley, I think Mayweather wins a wide decision.
Provo209
This is a fight I been wanting to see for years,finally !
I can't wait for May 1st ,I'm also looking foward to all the excuses that are going to come after Floyd beats Shane !

HYPE I'm with you on that Shane will be eating jabs all night , and won't be able to stop Floyds right ! Shane tends to drop his hands and plant his feet when going for the body Floyds left hook will land !
Floyd by UD 8 rounds to 4 ! I wouldn't be surprised if Shane gets stoped in this fight in the 11 round ..

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?

I will give Mayweather credit and think it's a solid win. That said, it doesn't change the fact that Mosley is 37 and not in his prime, so I am aware of that. But there is no way you will see me give Mayweather zero credit or anything. He will get credit from me, but I will not go way over the top.




Would you give Mayweather more credit for a Mosley win or a Pacman win at this point Fitz?

If Golden Boy Promotions really wants to stick it to Top Rank they should call the Mosley-Mayweather fight the "Main Event" because it is much greater than the Pacman-Clottey fight which is called "The Event.

That's exactly how it's going to go and the fact is that Mosley ain't the same fighter he was in his prime - so that's how it should be called.

To be great a fighter has to fight an unbeatable foe like Ali did with Foreman, SRL did with Hagler, ect. And Floyd has had many many opportunities to face those types of guys (Marg, Williams ect.) and he's chosen not to fight them. Now he's fighting a guy who is way past his prime and when Floyd wins in the same manner he beat Baldomir I'm going to point it out.

I'm really surprised that so many people are so excited about this fight. Hell, Shane landed a total of 3 punches in the first round of the second DLH fight. It wasn't until DLH decided to slug with him that Shane was able to hit him on any kind of consistant basis. If DLH can avoid Mosley's punches, Floyd can with ease. The only difference is that Floyd's never going to engage Shane ever.

Why are you surprised? People are excited about this fight because when's the last time Floyd fought somebody? People will simply take this fight, pay for it, and pray that they hit the jackpot - see Floyd get his ass kicked.

The whole point is that we're not going to see Floyd get his ass kicked by the older man. Obviously it's better than anything Floyd's been in since Castillo, but it still not going to be any great matchup because Shane doesn't have the speed to make this competitive and Floyd's going to run all night long. And the thing is that when Floyd wins by decision he's going to act as if he just ko'd Tyson and every excuse maker in the world will absolve Floyd for all the ducking he's done.

If Mosley had a fight in January, I think he would probably be a tougher fight. Coming off of a 16 month layoff, I am not sure that he is tougher fight than Clottey at all - let alone much tougher.

Both fights are interesting, good matchups.

I want to see Pacquiao test Clottey's toughness and knock him out for the first time while I like to see Floyd... well... get his butt kicked. Both fights are interesting.

I would not be suprised if floyd won a stinker. But i expect him to lose. I just dont think he truelly is a great WW. To tell you the truth I dont think he even thinks he is a great WW his choice of opponents at this weight to date has shown this.

Thats not the same Mosley we have seen recently. I think we'll be seeing something closer to the Mosley that fought Cotto. Mosley did very well in that fight. I think the thing that held him back in the early rounds was Cotto's power. In the late rounds he poured it on because Cotto' power faded. Mayweather isnt as powerful as Cotto. Mosley will go to work early and possibly stop Mayweather Late. i fully expect Naz and Mosley to geameplan Mayweather and beat him.
torvix2000
I've heard there's a rematch clause? So, if Shane wins, then he won't be able to fight Pac immediately.

Mayweather might not hit as hard as Cotto but his speed creates momentum and he is also much more accurate, which means he will be landing more often than Cotto was and thus be able to keep Mosley honest.

Very good fight for Mayweather to be taking and yes, Mosley is old but the majority of people here were picking him to destroy Berto so that means they still hold him in high regard.

I expect we'll see the Shane from the Margarito and Mayorga fights. THAT guy is an old school throwback type of fighter. Throwing combinations, with blazing handspeed and power...not that pot-shotting modern day crap. The classic boxer-puncher.

There are some pretty pitiful, uninformed, "fan boy" posters here no doubt and quite frankly you're the KING of them. look back in the archives when I told you a year ago or further this would be your pathetic excuse. I mean you've gone on ridiculous limps posting about Floyd vs. Matthew Hatton amongst others and it's like you (and some others) still don't get it.

You fool boys are used!! The person you claim to HATE you're actually keep alive. By that I mean this. I have no doubts (and I don't pretend to actually know the inner workings of boxing but I know marketing and the same literally elementary tricks are done in boxing) that "feelers" if you will are thrown to the media. Whether directly or indirectly they're leaked. Because you fan boy, hate boys whatever will suck and scrounge on ever morsel you can find, you'll comment on it. Talk of "Matthew Hatton, Saul whatever his name is and Nate Campbell" and the "Hate faction" (my new term) will sear on it like a typical vulture. Meantime you're too engulfed in your EMOTIONAL responses (like a female) that you don't realize you're getting played. Guitar strummed, fiddled, however you wanna call it.

All those little so called "leaks" are done to DELIBERATELY keep the discussion going and for a HATER such as yourself ("Floyd's the B side", "the fight to save boxing floyd vs Matthew Hatton", etc) even when the fight of all fights is signed, you STILL have questions. Seriously shut the FUCK UP.

I've mentioned time and time again and this isn't directed to you but others that what most of you allege as "DUCKS" (and not just Mayweather) are fighters taking more LUCRATIVE fights vs non lucrative fights. NO ONE in here not even the pseudo altruistic ones will do the same job for less money when another is paying more unless you're MARGARITO who turned down Williams for more money in a rematch to get his ASS kicked in what he thought was an easy fight.

My point in using that example is fighters more often than not chose their opposition based on the payout. Byrdman (ie) cries the fight wasn't made sooner. Please then tell me Byrdman when it should have been made when it could have been it's most lucrative??

Meantime the fight is made, done deal. The Floyd haters and you have the right can subside and get their excuses ready should he win.

Allan Greene can shut the fuck up also and hopefully get his ass kicked since he felt the fight would never get signed.

Lastly there should be some FIGHTHYPE thing gettogether for this in VEGAS. HYPE sup with that?
