Evidence that Pacquiao is not taking Mosley for granted is his efforts while doing the mitts with his trainer Freddie Roach.

During a mitts session with his 4-time trainer of the year in-front of the media a couple of days ago, Pacquiao was asking Freddie for a few more rounds. “Are you tired?” Manny asked Freddie who had a hard time slowing down his ward. Freddie had to give in to Pacquiao's request even if he is feeling tired already.

Mosley looks razor-sharp at his training camp in Big Bear, California a high-altitude location, 2 hours away from Los Angeles. This has been the best training camp of Shane Mosley so far and it’s like training for Oscar de la Hoya – whom Mosley got the distinction of winning twice. At his age of 39, Sugar is tagged as “old” or “at the twilight of his career” because he only won 2 of his last five fights.

Mosley's coach is positive of win

Coach Naazim Richardson, the trainer of 3-division world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley, is confident to pull an upset on the Pacquiao vs Mosley upcoming battle.

“We’re in it to win it!” stated Richardson, who was very impressive when Mosley and Margarito fought each other in January 2009.

Richardson continued to train Shane Mosley for his Mayweather and Mora fights but both fights were unimposing. Actually, Mosley, a Pomona native, is showing degradation in his 5 previous fights by winning only 2.

“This is a marathon, its’ not a sprint. It’s not about who runs out the fastest. It’s gonna be who’s gonna finish up the proper way,” said Richardson in the first episode of Fight camp 360. He sounds positive that Mosley will win against Filipino Manny Pacquiao who is seemingly-unstoppable at this time of his career. Pacquiao is on a 13 winning streak with notable KO defeat against prime fighters including Oscar de la Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto.

Despite being the huge underdog coming into the Pacquiao-Mosley fight, trainer Richardson believes that his guy is going to pull the biggest upset in the history of boxing. They are already embarrassed of their last performances but they are very much hungry for a win. They are very thankful that the number 1 boxer in the planet gave them a chance - and they will not waste it.

Currently training in Big Bear, California, about an hour and a half ride from Los Angeles, Mosley and Richardson is confident that they are 100% for the upcoming showdown. They are sure to give a heartbreaker to the great number of Pacquiao fans and give something to enjoy to the Mosley fans – quoting that “they will shock the world”. Every day they think and train for Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, an eight-division world champion. This gave them a lot of sureness to think that they will win the fight.

Shane insisted that Pacquiao has not fought anybody similar to his skills. He is stronger, faster, bigger and most of all, he is clever. Even at his age of 39, Mosley believes that his wide experience, durability and power packed in both hands will be his main weapon.

In Hollywood, California, Manny Pacquiao is also preparing for the upcoming fight. He does not want to take Shane Mosley lightly. He knows what he is capable of and he doesn’t want to dismay the large fan base he has. He trains with Freddie inside the Wild Card Boxing Gym, together with strength and conditioning Coach Alex Ariza.

On May 7, Pacquiao and Mosley will fight for the WBO (World Boxing Organization) Welterweight Belt inside the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Long-time boxing promoter warns Pacquiao of upset win

Rex Wakee Salud, a Cebu-based promoter and a good friend of Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, believes that “Sugar” Shane Mosley may be able to pull an upset on May 7 at the MGM Grand Arena. Salud, who has been a boxing promoter for 30 years said that even if Mosley is nearing his 40, you can’t discount him because he can still fight.

Shane, a heavy 7-1 underdog of the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight, is a 3-division world champion. He can punch in both hands and he is the fastest, strongest, and most clever opponent Pacquiao will face.

Salud is a bit worried on Pacquiao. Mosley might be able to pull an upset when they fight. Seeing the 2 upsets last week, and almost an upset the other week were some of the fights that can make you think that even underdogs are still in it to win it. The fight between Morales and Maidana a couple of weeks ago, made the casual boxing fans awe to the performance of the returning Erik Morales, who was the underdog. Many expected that Maidana will blow out the fight but only won it via majority decision. This past week, the favorite Juan Manuel Lopez loses to Orlando Salido via knockout and underdog Victor Ortiz won against undefeated Andre Berto. These are the 3 new examples why you shouldn’t take Shane Mosley lightly.

It’s a good thing that Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao are not taking Shane lightly. They expressed that this has been the best training camp so far. Roach said that Pacquiao will be the first to hand Mosley his KO loss. But when you ask Pacquiao, he would humbly say he will do everything to give the people a good fight.

Shane Mosley only won 2 of his last five fights. The last one, against the less known Sergio Mora, ended in a draw.

In recent interviews, Naazim Richardson, the trainer of Shane Mosley said that they will pull a Buster Douglas (vs Mike Tyson) on May 7. This will be the new greatest upset in the history of boxing.

Even though Salud believes in Manny’s skills, he still advised him to be very careful in every round especially in the first few rounds.

Prediction: Pacquiao will be the first to KO Mosley

According to many sources, they believed that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao of the Philippines will be the first to win a knockout against “Sugar” Shane Mosley of America - I'm with them.... But here's the point.

Mosley who won his first 38 fights and most of them by KO was one of the best welterweights of his era. His winning streak only ended when he fought Vernon Forrest. 6 months later, he asked for a Vernon Forrest rematch and he lost again. After his first of two wins against Oscar dela Hoya in September 2003, he fought Winky Wright twice and lost twice.

Shane Mosley has been notable for his fights against Antonio Margarito, Luis Collazo, Fernando Vargas and Ricardo Mayorga among many others. Even with his 6 defeats, he only lost to only four different boxers including Miguel Cotto in November 2007 and Floyd Mayweather Jr in May 2010. No one has ever won against Mosley in a KO. The question is, will Pacquiao be able to KO Mosley in May?

Pacquiao is currently hailed as the best in the sport today, if not all time. He is the pound-for-pound number 1 and the only boxer to win eight different championship belts in eight different weight divisions.

I personally believed that Pacquiao will KO the 39 year old Mosley when they collide atop the ring inside the MGM Grand Arena in front of 17,000 fans watching live and millions of people watching the Showtime PPV. Pacman is just too fast and too strong vs Mosley. He has the proper trainings and conditionings that can possibly KO Shane even in the first few rounds of their fight. But my prediction is this - Shane Mosley will be kayoed in the 9th or 10th round of the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight.

Pacman does not want to do what he did to Ricky Hatton a few years back. He wants to give the people the biggest bang for their buck by pretending he can’t finish Shane early on. He will try his best to keep away from the strong hooks of the Pomona native until the late rounds where Mosley is expected to tire out. Shane is just too old for Manny, he will turn 40 years old on September 7, 2011 and his endurance to reach the 12th round is already in question. Pacman knows Mosley will be easily kayoed in the later rounds so this will be the time he will give Shane his barrage of punches and put him on the canvass.

What is your own prediction?

Even as heavy favorite, Pacman still trains as hard

Probably part of hyping the upcoming fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley, Pacquiao’s camp is telling everyone that they are not taking “Sugar” Shane Mosley lightly. He has been a 3-division world champion and you can expect new things coming out from his arsenal.

Everyone at Pacquiao’s camp is saying that Sugar is still "sweet" and if he can hit Pacquiao’s button in the early rounds with a solid blow, it will be a kiss on the canvass for Pacquiao. Shane can punch both right and left with more power compared to Pacquiao’s previous opponent, Antonio Margarito. Shane won against Margarito in January 2009 in a murderous 9th round KO compared it Pacquiao who finished the whole 12 rounds and winning only in scores.

Pacquiao is now in Hollywood, California training at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym. He is preparing heavily because he does not want to get kayoed but an old boxer. No one knows how Mosley is training right now. They are very discreet even to the Showtimes crew members who produce the Fight Camp 360 reality series.

Pacman trains everyday and does not attend to calls if it’s not important. During the early days of their training in Hollywood, they are closing their doors to the public because they don’t want any distractions on Pacman and hinder him from becoming 100% coming into the fight.

Manny, a congressman in the Philippines, has a lot in mind now. He needs to attend to his people in Sarangani (a province in the Philippines) and he needs to prepare hard for his upcoming fight with the Pomona native. He is ready to spar 12 rounds with his “Mosley clones” so they can get the job right in the early rounds. Round by round they are discussing right and wrong to Pacquiao's attacks so Manny will be the first boxer to KO Mosley.

Mosley has had a wonderful career until Vernon Forrest and Winky Wright both stopped him twice. But Shane Mosley achieved a feat of being the only boxer who won against a young Oscar dela Hoya twice and he won his first 39 fights as a Professional Boxer, mostly by KO.

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight will be on May 7 at the MGM Grand Arena in Sin City. Tickets are still available on this link. Book now to avoid rush buying.

Mosley to make good use of Pacquiao's weaknesses

Less than a month to go before the Pacquiao vs Mosley mega-fight will happen at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In a recent interview by on Sugar Shane, the Pomona native believes that he can exploit Pacquiao’s weaknesses when they fight on May 7.

Every day, Shane becomes more and more confident as the fight draws near. He is currently training in Big Bear, California with his Coach Naazim Richardson.

"We all have flaws, but are we able to capitalize on those flaws? With Pacquiao, he throws so many punches; he fights with so much fury. But I think I will be able to exploit them. I think it's my speed, the power, even my size, will make it easy to get to those spots." according to Mosley in his interview.

Manny Pacquiao is expected by many to win the fight. He has been on a 13-win streak and Mosley is no different from the recent fighters Manny faced in terms of power and speed.

Sugar Shane is an entertaining boxer because he throws a lot of punches just to get inside the defense of his opponent and throw his own flurry. Pacquiao also do the same thing, which is vert entertaining to watch for a boxing match. “We all know that Pacquiao has flaws”, said Mosley. He will capitalize on those errors and subject Manny to hard fight and possibly pull an upset and get the WBO Welterweight Belt.

Mosley, in most of his professional boxing career, has been fighting as a Welterweight and Lightweight and has won most of his fight in those divisions. He is 3-division champion and definitely knows how to fight in a championship match against a hard-hitting opponent. Shane is the only boxer to defeat Oscar dela Hoya twice.

Pacman’s weakest spot is his chin and mid-section based on his previous fights several years ago. If Pacquiao throws combinations, Shane Mosley will also throw his own leaving both of their defenses vulnerable to a KO punch. Mosley is a more accurate puncher compared to Antonio Margarito and he has the ring intelligence comparable to Manny. He loves to fight fire with fire. On May 7, let’s see if Shane can exploit the weaknesses of Pacquiao and win.

Pacquiao vs Mosley is promoted by Top Rank Promotions. Watch the online live streaming for $54.95 via Showtime pay-per-view.

Pacquiao seriously trains for the Mosley fight

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao recently ended his high-altitude training in Baguio, Philippines and then went to Hollywood, California to train at the Wild Card Gym owned by his celebrated trainer, Freddie Roach. It’s about a month to go before Manny takes on “Sugar” Shane Mosley, a native of Pomona, California who has been a 3-division world champion.

Pacquiao is not taking Sugar Shane lightly. He believes Mosley is very hungry to get a win because his last two fights were not impressive. Currently, Pacman is hailed as the number 1 boxer in the world, pound for pound, and many are expecting he will win. But on the contrary, Team Mosley believes they will be able to pull an upset on May 7.

The Pacquiao-Mosley fight is for the WBO (World Boxing Organization) Welterweight Belt, currently held by Manny. The fight will be held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Manny Pacquiao is now having a closed-door session with Freddie Roach, Alex Ariza and Buboy Fernandez. There are only several people close to Pacquiao who are allowed to get inside the Wild Card Gym as well as the crew of CBS / Showtime who are producing the Fight Camp 360 episodes. Those people who don't have any official business to Pacquiao are advised to stay out. This way they will be able to take Pacquiao out of distractions and focus on his upcoming Mosley fight.

Pacquiao is serious in training. He trains every day and works hard to improve his speed and power. He wants to be the first boxer to KO Mosley. He sometimes spar with Amir Khan, who is scheduled to be in the Khan vs McCloskey fight on April 16.

Shane Mosley, on the other hand, is also not taking Manny Pacquiao lightly. He now trains with Coach Naazim Richardson in Big Bear, California. Mosley’s training camp is all blood, sweat and tears just to get the limelight of the sport once again. Mosley is the only boxer who defeated Oscar dela Hoya twice and his first 30 or so fights in his professional career were all won impressively.

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight is expected to be very entertaining in the first few rounds. Shane Mosley is predicted to tire in the later rounds because Pacquiao is just way too powerful and fast for him. Predictions from boxing enthusiasts are spread all over the internet and many continue to believe that Mosley has a very low possibility of winning the fight.The last boxer who has won against Pacquiao is Erik Morales, who will be in the Morales vs Maidana fight on April 9.

Mosley’s only way to win is by knocking Pacquiao out. But since Pacquiao is religiously serious in training and conditioning, Mosley’s power will not be enough.
