Evidence of Pacquiao not taking Mosley lightly

Even with his busy time schedule, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, still make it to a point that he impresses everyone around him for his upcoming fight against “Sugar” Shane Mosley. 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.

Pacman believes in Shane’s ability to knock anyone out. “He is the bigger, taller boxer. He is fast and strong and he has power in both his hands,” explained Pacquiao who is having the best training camp so far in his entire boxing career.

Mosley won only 2 of his last five fights and the other 1 was a controversial draw. Many believe that Shane has already left his prime years because of his last two fights. Pacquiao won his last 13 fights and most of them are knockouts against popular boxers including Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton and Oscar de la Hoya.

Pacquiao’s goal is to be the first pugilist to win against Mosley by stoppage. Mosley’s goal is to win against the pound-for-pound king so he will be the one to seat in his throne.

Manny is showing a good performance in his 12 round sparring against David Rodela, Ray Beltran and a couple other boxers. He says he is ready for a 12-round action but he can’t promise to win via stoppage. The humble Pacquiao only promised that he will give the people a good fight and strive to win against the three-division world champion.

Pacman is not new to breaking the improbable. Evidence is that he has won eight championships in eight different divisions, he is the first active boxer to become a congressman and he is the first Filipino to endorse Nike products - and the long-list continues.

Team Pacquiao will fly to Las Vegas this Monday afternoon and finish the training camp there. Manny will be advised to slow down a bit to avoid any physical discomfort when he fights Shane in the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight.

On May 7, the Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley fight will be available live on pay-per-view. They will fight in-front of the 17,000 sell-out crowd in the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
