Mosley's Trainer: Shane Not Fooled By Pacquiao's Size

By Mark Vester

Trainer Naazim Richardson is not underestimating the size of Manny Pacquiao. Richardson's fighter, former three division champion Shane Mosley, faces Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Since Pacquiao's made the move to 147-pounds, several of his opponents have underestimated his size and power. Because Pacquiao began his career at 106-pounds, opponents immediately view him as the "smaller man."

Richardson respects Pacquiao's physical qualities, and regards him as a solid welterweigh. He disagrees with anyone who calls considers him a small welterweight.

"They constantly talk about Pacquiao being a little guy. I totally disagree. I've said it a 1000 times and a I'll say it a 1000 more times. Pacquiao being a little welterweight is like calling Mike Tyson a little heavyweight. He's a solid welterweight," Richardson said.

"If Shane didn't have an amateur career, he probably would have been a champion at 106, 108 and 112, but he was fighting in the amateurs then. Shane is another guy from the small weight class who came up to 154 and won a title."
