Mosley: If Margarito Was Able To Hit Pacquiao, So Will I!

By Chris LaBate

"Sugar" Shane Mosley is confident that he's going to catch Manny Pacquiao in their May 7 meeting at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mosley is not denying that he's not the fighter that he once was, but he still believes that his speed is good enough to catch Pacquiao on the chin.

"I certainly think that I'm faster than Margarito. Margarito was able to land some shots. He is two or three times slower than I am. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to land some shots on Manny Pacquiao," Mosley said. "I'm going to start training on March 7, which is going to give me two months to prepare for the fight, so I'll be ready."

Mosley did not look good in his two recent fights, a twelve round decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last May and a twelve round draw last September with Sergio Mora. Styles make fights, says Mosley.

"Styles make fights. Mayweather is a very defensive fighter. Mora is a much bigger guy. He's really a middleweight who came down to 154. He was running and being defensive. Pacquiao is going to come to fight and I do well against fighters like that. I expect an exciting fight," Mosley said.
