Pacquiao and Mosley showing respect

Many are excited to watch the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley on live streaming via Showtime pay-per-view or live at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Manny Pacquiao, a congressman in the Philippines, chose from Juan Manuel Marquez, Andre Berto, and Shane Mosley in December for his next opponent. Pacquiao finally settled for Shane Mosley because he believes that the American professional boxer is the most famous among the three and can give good income to the both of them and the promoters.

Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao both respect each other. They are educated boxers who know how to promote a fight without trash-talking or throwing mud to each other. Manny Pacquiao has always been this way. Even when he already got the limelight of the sport, he remains humble and god-fearing. He prays in the ring corner before and after the fight. Shane Mosley, who is an educated person, likes how Pacquiao treats him and share the same humbleness Manny gave to him. Even if he knows Pacquiao will be his opponent this May 7 for the WBO Welterweight Belt, he doesn’t sling mud at him.

The Mosley vs Pacquiao promotional tour has ended. Media people and casual boxing fans liked the way both boxers showed respect to each other. In a sport that has its dark-side, boxing, has always been looked upon as brutal. Promoting the fight will always include trash-talking, teasing, annoying and mocking the opponent – well, that was before. Now that the Pacquiao-Mosley promotion has done it on opposite style, boxing fans believed that the next big fights will no longer include the bad part of the sport. Let the boxers show it in the ring rather than bad-mouthing his opponent outside the ring.

Mosley to KO Pacquiao

Sugar Shane Mosley believes that his last two fights were not impressive because of the type of opponents he faced. In May 2010, he fought Floyd Mayweather Jr, wobbled him in the 2nd round of their fight but just couldn’t finish him. Floyd battled on and continued with his shoulder roll defense outclassing Mosley in the later rounds. In September 2010, hungry to get back in the ring, Mosley fought Sergio Mora. In the first few rounds, Mora got him with big punches but most of the rounds Mosley won it by points. They fight ended in a controversial draw which many believed to be won by Shane Mosley.

The Pacquiao-Mosley fight is promoted by Top Rank Promotions in association with MP Promotions, SSM Promotions, Tecate, Showtime and MGM Grand. Head promoter Bob Arum believes that the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley on May 7 will be very entertaining. “Styles make fights” as what many promoters and boxers say. Both Manny and Shane Mosley are warriors and loves to throw a lot of punches. They believed that throwing a lot of punches can overwhelm the enemy and possibly score a KO in any round.

Shane Mosley, a warrior by heart won his first 33 fights as a professional. Most of those where via KO. He believes he still has the power and speed to win against Pacquiao. Shane Mosley knows that he is already old and his endurance will surely not reach the 12th round. He will try his best to throw accurate punches to Pacquiao in the early rounds and finish him as soon as possible.

Mosley vs Pacquiao live stream is available via Showtime PPV for only $54.95. The tickets to the Pacquiao-Mosley fight venue is already sold-out so the only option now to watch the fight is through pay-per-view.
