Roach: Mosley Won't Last, Pacquiao is Knocking Him Out!

By Chris LaBate

Trainer Freddie Roach is confident that WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is going to become the first man to knock Shane Mosley out on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Roach expects some danger in the early rounds, and then for Pacquiao to pick up the pace and break Mosley down for a late round stoppage. Mosley has only been down in one fight, which came against the late Vernon Forrest in 2002.

"Shane is a tough guy. He has a good chin and he's dangerous. He is faster than [Antonio] Margarito and he's a much better boxer, but I don't think he's going to last the distance. I think my guy will knock him out," Roach said.

[QUOTE=Bateman;10101537]That's what he said about Clottey and Margarito, didn't KO 'em.[/QUOTE] Should've had the TKO against Margs though. A bit troubling that the ref, ring doctor, and worst yet his own corner, let him take that kind of punishment :nonono:

[QUOTE=Bateman;10101537]That's what he said about Clottey and Margarito, didn't KO 'em.[/QUOTE] So when Pacquiao wins overwhelmingly and dominatingly...it is actually against the boxer and the trainer that he didn't win with a resounding KO. Geez.... WIth Margarito, Pacquiao could have…

I usually roll with Freddie Roach's predictions but not this one. No way Shane Mosley lets Manny Pacquiao stop him.

[QUOTE=JonoYoungP4P;10098051]smh, you said that against clottey n tony[/QUOTE] He should have gotten the stoppage against Margarito and it's hard to stop somebody who just covers up, isn't it?
