One of the bigger fall from graces I have seen from a shot fighter. Talking about the general opinion of a fighter. Before the fight, Mosley was one of the more respected fighters in the modern era. Maybe not everyone liked him, but they respected his toughness and willingness to take all challenges.
He punks out at 40 years old and now look at the back lash he is receiving.
Big Morales fan, but he punked out with Pacquiao in the 3rd fight, Tyson has punked out at the end of his career and Duran punked out hard against Leonard, who is an all time great and absolutely no where near as shot as Mosley.
Many great fighters have bitched out at some stage. Many of these fighters are still great because we saw what they were capable off on there better days. This isn't new. That has to be one of the worst performances, but judging his career based on that is harsh. Duran flat out quit.

Agree that Shane shouldn't be shat on for struggling to finish what may have been his final fight. His long career is a testament to his courage. He never hid from anybody.
And yet, people who plunked down $60 for that fight may rightly feel ripped-off. If Shane could figure a way to get their money back to them, I'm sure everyone would be happy to forget the fight ever happened.
Anyone who saw Shane v PBF and Mora should have been expecting a version of the fight we got. In the end, the fact that Mosley survived should be considered an accomplishment, I suppose, if he was actually as triggerless as he appeared. I guess I shouldn't be so pissed about another boxer choosing to cash in.
But . . . wanting to quit because of your feet? What? Were there razors in the ballerina's slippers?
Look at the big picture, I am insulted by the performance.
Welcome to FightHype, Walstan.

ahhh back on my computer feels great....
Yea he ran his ass off lol...he should of hung it up after he exposed Margachito
but hey....Pacquiao beat his ass lol sucks to see him go out like this....wait actually I never really cared for Mosley
He was fast but always awkward and had only the fade jab to his power left hand that was really it....any who wow lol
I choose to remember the fighter
that was Sugar
from 1993 through 2001.
After that, many believe he lost 5 fights straight, with an NC sandwiched in-between. Yes, I realize who he was fighting. That is his main claim to fame since 2002. He was considered done before Margarito. It was an awesome performance v a mind fucked opponent.
Let's not rehash the rest of the way. It was a cash-in. Who can blame him? I can.
