Video: Weigh in of Pacquiao vs Mosley

Shane Mosley, at one point of his career was the top pound-for-pound – but that was last 2002. This time he will be up against Manny Pacquiao, the rated number one pound-for-pound fighter right now. Hours ago, the weigh in of Pacquiao vs Mosley inside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, materialized. Manny Pacquiao, the Filipino Congressman, tipped the scales at 145 pounds and American Sugar Shane Mosley weighed-in at 147 pounds.

The weight limit for the weight in was 147 lbs because the fight will be settled at the welterweight division. Manny Pacquiao is going to defend his WBO Welterweight Crown against the Pomona native; the same belt he got from Miguel Cotto, a common opponent of Pacquiao and Mosley, in November 2009.

A jam-packed crowd inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena welcomed Pacquiao and Mosley to see how they both weighted and at the same time looked at how conditioned their body is. It is definitely a sold-out event, about half of the arena opened up. Thousands of people had a hard time getting inside the jam-packed event. Some of them are just waiting at the casino and waited for the event to finish.

Pacquiao debuted in 106 pounds. He was a world champion at 112 lbs, 115 lbs, 122 lbs working all the way up to 154 lbs when he fought Antonio Margarito in November last year. This time, he will be back at 147 pounds to settle the score with Shane Mosley who is believed to be one of the toughest opponents in the weight class.

Sugar Shane Mosley for the last eight to ten years has been campaigning in the welterweight and middleweight divisions. He is 39 years old; Manny Pacquiao is 32 years old.

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight is one of the most discussed bouts in recent years. This is because of Shane’s last two performances that were anything less than impressive while Manny Pacquiao is on a 13th winning streak and hasn’t lost since the 2005 fight against Erik Morales.

Please see the weigh-in video below and share it to your friends. The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight is promoted by Top Rank Promotions in association with MP Promotions, SSM Promotions, Tecate, MGM Grand Arena and Showtime.
