Mosley Focused on "Landing A lot" of Shots in Every Round

By Chris LaBate

Former three division champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley is going to put everything on the line in every single round of his upcoming fight with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. To slow down Pacquiao's high workrate, Mosley plans to land, and land big, in every round.

“You have to land a lot of punches. You have to land a high percentage and more every round. It’s like when I fought Margarito - before he was throwing like 1,000 punches but when I fought him he only threw 500. It’s all the angles and the way you move and how you turn him to where you make him not throw as many punches," Mosley said.

Among the small percentage of experts who give Mosley a decent shot to win, believe that he needs to knock Pacquiao out early.

Mosley disagrees.

“No, I don’t buy into that. I’ve knocked people out early and I’ve knocked people out late so I don’t buy into that,” Mosley said.

The fight takes place on May 7 on Showtime Pay-Per-View.

It seems like these guys still underestimate Pacquiao's chin as a welterweight. One shot won't do it. None of these welterweights punch hard enough to beat him landing one big punch.

[QUOTE=_Hisoka;10463368]Mosley's best bet is to attack Pacquiao in between his guard, Pacquiao leaves a pretty big gap down the middle. I'd start off by attacking the body.[/QUOTE] agreed...pac ia venerable down the middle.. I dont think pac is gonna be…
