Cunningham: Mosley Can Defeat Pacquiao if He Listens

By Lem Satterfield

IBF cruiserweight champion, Steve Cunningham is trained by Naazim Richardson, the same man who works with three-division, five-time titlist Sugar Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 knockouts) and former undisputed middleweight king Bernard Hopkins (51-5-2, 32 KOs).

The 39-year-old Mosley has a May 7 HBO pay-per-view showdown with WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao, which takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The 34-year-old Cunningham (23-2, 12 KOs) believes that if Mosley follows the direction of Richardson, that he will be victorious against Pacquiao.

"[Working with Richardson] is everything positive. He'll break down your good parts and your bad, and let you see what you're doing wrong so you can correct it. He'll break your opponent down and let you know what you need to do. The game plan is solid. If you stick to the game plan with him - you win," Cunningham told FanHouse.
