Why is Shane Mosley so highly rated?
He was a beast at LW but ever since he moved up to WW, he's been mediocre.
His best win is Oscar De La Hoya (13 years ago). Good win and somehow catapulted him to P4P #1.
Then loses to Vernon Forrest x2. Beats shot Vargas 2x. Loses to Winky x2. Shoulda lost to the Oscar rematch. Beats mid-tier guys like Collazo (good win IMO), Estrada, etc.
Then lets Cotto squeak by him then looks like ass vs shot Mayorga.
Then has his best win since Oscar, an already beaten fighter in Margarito. Shane is really lucky Margarito came in mentally fucked from what happened in the locker room.
Then it's all downhill from there. He was already gonna be used as a stepping stone for Berto, had a full training camp, then Floyd steps in, has another training camp and looks like ass. Has a TERRIBLE fight vs Sergio fkn Mora, looks like ass vs Pac and Canelo.
I don't see how this guy is so great above LW. He lost every single top fight he had. Oh, and he's a proven cheater.
