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.
