Pacquiao not looking for a KO versus Mosley

The upcoming fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley is fast approaching. Twelve days to go before the clash on Saturday, May 7 at the MGM Grand Arena in the Sin City.

Pacquiao, 52 wins (38 KOs) - 3 losses - 2 draws, is not looking for a knockout in his fight against Shane Mosley, 46 wins (39 KOs) - 6 losses - 1 draw.

"I never get in the ring to look for a knockout. If you look for the knockout, you never know what will happen. I just come in there to win," Pacquiao told

Manny, a congressman in the Philippines, believes that a knockout win will come naturally. If he wins by knockout, it will be a big bonus for him and for his great number of fans.

Pacquiao wants to be the first to win a KO against Shane Mosley, who lost 6 times already, but never in a stoppage. But he does not really expect to stop Mosley when they fight. “Pacquiao knows that Shane does not have the word ‘quit’ in his dictionary,” said Pacquiao’s long-time friend and adviser Michael Koncz. "If there's a stoppage, it will probably be by a referee decision".

Everytime Pacquiao goes up the ring he only thinks of winning and giving a good fight to the many boxing fans watching all over the world. He prepares for a 12-round fight and not thinks that he can KO any opponent every time he’s out there to do his job.

Mosley on the other hand believes on Pacquiao’s capabilities and even tagged him as ‘killer’ inside the ring. Shane, a 3-division world champion, is a clever boxer who knows how to deal the punching styles of Pacquiao. Mosley believes his age is a non-factor in the fight. He is well-conditioned for a 12 round fight and even predicted he will KO Pacquiao in the middle rounds.

“I respect Shane’s boxing abilities and I never take any fighter for granted,” said Pacquiao who knows Shane is the underdog of this fight. “He is strong and fast and he has the knockout power that is packed in both his hands,” Pacquiao added.

Mosley’s trainer Naazim Richardson also insists that they will pull a Buster Douglas (vs Mike Tyson), the biggest upset in boxing’s history, on May 7.

Pacquiao’s last KO was won was against Ricky Hatton in May 2009. In November 2009, Pacquiao won against Miguel Cotto via TKO or Referee intervention. His last two fights were won via unanimous decision.
