Trainer Naazim Richardson doesn't expect his boxer, Shane Mosley, to drop Manny Pacquiao for the full count. Richardson expects a series of knockdowns until Pacquiao is unable to continue. The fight takes place on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Richardson told The Philippine Star that he agrees with the opinion of his boxer. Mosley predicts an early night if the boxers start slugging it out in the opening round.
Richardson admits that a knockout of Pacquiao won't come easy. Mosley will have to mentally prepare himself to lay on the damage in every single round.
“If you knock him (Pacquiao) down, he’s gonna get up. Manny Pacquiao is the kind of guy that I firmly believe that if Shane Mosley knocks him down two times every round, then every round he gets back up. So my Shane must be mentally prepared to keep knocking him back down,” said Richardson.
