Shane Mosley: I Could End The Pacquiao Fight Quick

By Lem Satterfield

Three-division, five-time titlist, Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 knockouts) is feeling confident as the media tour plays out for his May 7 clash with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mosley believes in his own power and the ability to knock Pacquiao out with the right shot. He predicts the opportunity to the land that shot will be there because of Pacquiao's high punch output.

"I don't think that it's going to go the distance. I could end it quick. I'm not a betting man. I don't like to bet. But I'm definitely sure that I won't be on the losing end of the stick," said Mosley. "I think that it should be somewhat even, because there's two fighters, and we're even. We're two, similar types of fighters. We like to battle, and we like to get into great fights. He's a little smaller than me, but he throws punches probably a little more rapidly than I do. My punches are a little bit heavier."

Mosley is soaking up the atmosphere of the media tour as he enters the twilight of his illustrious career. He doesn't expect much of a feeling out process. He expects Pacquiao to attack early and a fight to break out from the very start.

"It's not like when I have to chase a guy around the ring, trying to get shots off. I mean, this guy is going to be right there with me. I mean, he's going to move a little bit here and there," said Mosley. "But mostly, he's going to punch with me and we're going to exchange. That's what fight fans want to see. Fight fans want to see people exchanging and people fighting."

I agree, he can end it quick. He's one mistake away from ending the fight À la hatton. Having said that, Mosley has a granite chin and beastly power, but all the power in the world won't help him if…

Just go to the body. You're not gonna meet him punch for punch, you were chosen as an opponent because you can't meet him punch for punch. But Manny's body is soft. Margarito spent his first what? 5 or 6…

Mosley will hug at the first sight of danger, just like he did when he fought Margarito. He´s a coward. Mora made him look terrible.
