Tim Bradley Rips Alexander, Says Mosley "Looked Shot"

By Chris LaBate

During a recent interview with Suge Green of On The Grind Boxing Radio , WBO junior welterweight Tim Bradley discussed his upcoming January 29 unification with WBC champ Devon Alexander and he gave his thoughts on Shane Mosley challenging Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title on May 7.

Bradley is a big fan of Mosley. That doesn't affect his opinion on the fight. He was very impressed with Mosley's performance against Antonio Margarito in January 2009. Bradley lost that impression when he saw Mosley fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 2010 and then Sergio Mora in September 2010. Bradley says Pacquiao will be "too much" for the 39-year-old veteran.

"I love Sugar Shane Mosley. He's one of the best fighters ever man to lace up a pair of gloves I think. But right now, at this point I think Pacman is just too much. Unless...he gotta prove me wrong. I watched Shane in his last fight and I was just like, 'What is going on? What happened to Shane Mosley man?' I don't know. He looked impressive against Margarito, then he fought against this tough kid and I was like, 'Man what happened?' And he just looked shot. Just shot," Bradley said.

The fight with Alexander has been building for the last few months with both sides takes verbal swipes at each other. Once the fight was signed, the verbal swipes continued. Bradley promised to shut Alexander down by putting in a "fight of the year" type performance.

"It's gonna be probably fight of the year. Guarantee you - there's gonna be fireworks man. I'm letting everybody know I'm coming, so whatever Devon do - I'm coming. Just know that Tim Bradley said he's coming and just watch me do my thing. Please," Bradley said.

"They call [Alexander] I guess, 'The Great.' But after I get done with him he ain't gonna be called 'great' no more, he's gonna be called average. So everybody stay tuned. Check me out and don't miss it man. Don't miss it."

[QUOTE=dblaze9;9899379]Can't wait for Bradley Vs. Alexander, but everyone thinks Mosely is past his prime because of his fight with Sergio, but Sergio beat Vernon Forrest and he is a lot better than most boxing experts even give him credit for.…
