Mosley: You Will See the Man Who Knocked Margarito Out!

By Salvador Rodriguez

Shane Mosley (46-7-1, 39KOs) is not offended by those who believe that he has no chance to defeat Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs), on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mosley promised to arrive as the same man who knocked out Antonio Margarito in 2009, and not the boxer who lost lopsided decisions to Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"They are going to see the Mosley who defeated Margarito, not the one who lost to Pacquiao or Mayweather, who are also the best in the world. I am very excited about this match. I want to be world champion and I will accomplish this. Age does not matter if you prepare well," Mosley said.

Canelo expects a tough fight from his 40-year-old opponent.

"I know that my opponent is dangerous, but I will not fail. I will show everyone that Canelo will be a champion for a while," said Canelo.

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya sees big things for the winner.

"I think a plus for this fight is that the winner of Canelo and Mosley could end up facing the winner of Mayweather and Cotto. We are starting this mini-tournament at 154 pounds and it's very interesting," stated De La Hoya.

If Mayweather and Mosley win, that rematch better not get made. Mosley won't win though.
