Did you watch the same Mora fight that I did? SSM just loading up with telegraphed shit . . . "OK, here comes a old man's fantasy heavy bag left . . . now I'm going to pull way back and throw my right."
The fact that a 39 year old SSM is the fastest dude Pac has fought recently says more about The Little Green Monster's competition than it does about SSM.
BGv2.0 steps up to the plate . . . and why not? You have even less to lose than SSM. And isn't that the point? SSM has nothing to lose but brain cells and a helluva payday to gain.
Pac has fought a long series of damaged goods with an African heavy bag sandwiched neatly between them. You got it . . . a shit sandwich for the boxing world delivered to you by Dusty the organ grinder; the piece of dogshit so fuckin old in every conceivable way that the mold done died and he is dissolving before our eyes.
#2 steps up to the plate. You honestly believe that if this is close and it goes to the cards that SSM is going to get the nod? Come on, man! The only way SSM gets a SD is if he dominates to the tune of 10 rounds to 2 or more. That ain't happenin'.
LL, you got the attitude of a 3 year old huntin' dog. Don't ever lose that.
PBF's gonna be "watchin' Lady Gaga on HBO." Case fuckin' closed . . . motherfucker is a switch hitter at best . . . go gittim SSM. Take that little mofo to hell with you.
THIS right here on the 2nd line!!
Pac's people are superb match makers that's for sure!! Manny has managed to get the best of both worlds by getting a string of fights with big names of the sport in low risk/high reward bouts with Mosley being the most respectable name of them all so far. Weather they have been shot, weight drained, payed, damaged, old or a combination, he has gotten too much credit from some of those victories by the media, boxing fans and casual and as a result his ATG status has been blown out of proportion! Mosley may be faster than the rest of the opponent, but I wouldn't regard Mosey having quick hands or specially feet anymore like Pac keeps bringing up...he is using a younger Mosley as a description to the one he is fighting now. Mosley fights like he has grip tape underneath his shoes
It's easy to look like a boxing god when the opponent across from you doesn't even test & push you, regardless of their name and past capabilities.

what is the over/under on the round Nazim will say to shane "you are not doing what we did in camp?" "stop loading up one shot" "where is your jab?" ...etc (meanwhile shane has his glazed over look like he does when it's going down hill for him)
I say rd 7....this will be when it all goes downhill imo and turns into a speed bag fest manny darting in and out making shane look like and old washed fighter.
Yup. Forget all the episodes of 360 and all the "Mosley is dangerous/Manny isn't taking him lightly" hype, this is exactly how it's going to end up. I'm going to say this will start happening from rounds 3-4 with Mosley huffing and puffing in the corner.
Mosley isn't Hopkins who is still an effective fighter at his age...as knowledgeable as Nazim may be, he has gotten to Mosley way to late in his career, who has been on the down slope for years now!

Richardson is going to throw in the towel then strangle Mosley with it.
Too late is exactly the feeling I think Richardson is going to be. I gotta a feeling people are going to be surprised with how easily Manny's shots are going to be able to hurt Mosley! Mosley's chins is starting to show cracks! He hasn't shown to take them as good as he used with how he reacts..him pulling his head back isn't going to help, lateral movement isn't something he has shown for ages.
I think Pac well start hurting Mosley early on and may be able to land enough significant shots by the mid rounds before the ref has a chance to wave it off, or Richardson uses his towel for another reason his not used to!
