A potential fight that many boxing experts say has been brewing since the 90's, when Floyd Mayweather Jr. was a super featherweight and Shane Mosley was a lightweight. Back then, an up and coming Mayweather tried to get himself a fight with Mosley, who would instead move up by two weight divisions and make his mark in the sport by winning a decision over a prime Oscar De La Hoya in a welterweight classic.

Over the years, the two sides have baited each other through the media and a fight never came close to coming together. Mayweather, making his own mark and gaining a much higher position in the sport than Mosley, now views the veteran fighter as someone who doesn't bring any money to the table or does anything to warrant the two of them having to fight. Mosley has never been a mega-attracion in terms of ticket sales but he is one the top fighters and biggest names in the sport.

Mosley shot back during a recent television interview and said Mayweather returned because he lost all of his money. He told Floyd to stop running away from the fight.

"Floyd, quit running. Stop running. Stop saying that, oh, you know, I'm not a pay-per-view attraction, or this or that. I've been fighting longer than you. I've been making money longer than you. That's probably why you're coming back to the sport right now is because you need money, you lost your money, now you had to come back and get some more money. We can make money togther, alright? So let's do it," Mosley said.

[QUOTE=Iceta] Mayweather had his chance to fight Mosley after Shane dominated Collazo and he blew it. The fight can still happen but don't you think Mayweather brings a lot of this negative criticism on himself by stalling this fight. I know both guys are guilty of this to a certain extent, ...

[QUOTE=switchsouthpaw]Shane Mosley is a 1st class/grade future HOF, who just dismantled a man, that Floyd wanted no part of. [U]I'd pretty much say that is the definition of deserving[/U]. I'd also bet the house that you're views are in the minority, and that most people would like to see this ...
