Sulaiman: Shane Mosley Has No Legs, No Chance To Win

By James Blears

Not slim, but none….are Shane Mosely’s chances of defeating Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, according to WBC President Jose Sulaiman.

Sulaiman says Shane’s just too old to defeat rampant Pacquiao, and the competitive element isn’t going to be there in this fight for that long. He suggested: “Mosely can give Pacquiao two, three or perhaps four good rounds. But after that, you need the reaction of the body. Shane is thirty nine years old. He’s lost his legs. I don’t think he’s got any possibility of defeating Manny Pacquiao.

“But I also want to say that Sugar Shane Mosely WAS a great fighter. He defeated so many in his time, including Oscar De La Hoya twice. But now it’s a different story, and we must realize that age has a tremendous impact on the body and also the mind, in boxing.

“It’s my opinion that Mosley definitely shouldn’t have taken this fight!”

[QUOTE=marikudo;10479468]The rematch will have the same result even if his trainer is Steward. You can't teach old dogs new tricks.[/QUOTE] I don't believe so. Although I can see why people would think so. Even though his last fights have been…
