Mosley's Cutman on The Foot Injury During Pacquiao Fight

Sugar Shane Mosley, who took a 12-round shellacking Saturday night in Las Vegas from a less than stellar Manny Pacquiao, wasn’t concerned about the good fight, he was preoccupied during the bout with alleviating the pain in his “bad foot.”

How a 39-year-old, 60 pro bout veteran could do this, I am unclear. It certainly wasn't Mosley's first time at the big rodeo but it may have been his last.

Let Jimmy Glenn, octogenarian Times Square saloon owner and expert cutman who worked Mosley’s corner, explain all this shoe business.

“Naaz (trainer Naazim Richardson) told Shane at least twice not to wear some new boxing shoes somebody had given him,” Glenn told me. “A fighter should know not to wear any shoes he has not worn a couple of times before. Boxing shoes need to be broken in to be comfortable.

“I heard Naaz tell Shane, ‘Do not wear those shoes.’

“But Shane wore them and then had problems with his right foot. Something happened in the third round when Pacquiao knocked Shane down,” Glenn said.

“These shoes he never tried before, he had a problem with the insole and his right foot started hurting like mad from the fourth round on. Skin came off on his foot and Shane was bleeding in the shoe.”

The courtly Glenn, himself an ex-pro fighter and a sparring partner to heavyweight champ Floyd Patterson, said the bottom of Mosley’s right, his sole, had to be sterilized in the dressing room after Pacman took a decision that was a shutout on two of the three cards.

“I cleaned up his foot, me and Shane’s father (Jack),” Glenn said.

Glenn said the discomfort made a big difference in the outcome.

“I was very surprised at how Shane fought. I thought he’d use the jab, work off that and then set Pacquiao up, maybe for a KO. Pacquiao was not running at Shane but Shane couldn’t do nothing.”

I asked Glenn if he recalls Richardson talking about halting the bout halfway through, after the sixth round.

“I don’t know nothing about that. Pacman, I thought he was good but I felt Shane would’ve beaten him if he did not get those shoes.

“They talk about (Zab) Judah, (Tim) Bradley, (Juan Manuel) Marquez, they won’t beat Pacquiao.

“It will take a good fighter to beat Manny. I do see him as beatable and I think Floyd Mayweather’s got too much skill and is too savvy for Pacquiao.”

For decades, Glenn operated the old Times Square Gym, two streets down from his popular watering hole on West 44thStreet, Jimmy’s Corner.

Glenn’s cozy bar is filled with boxing items including photos of the host with boxing greats such as Muhammad Ali, matchmaker Teddy Brenner and Marvelous Marvin Hagler.

If you go there, wear some comfortable shoes.
