    Anybody up for this fight? Does Mosley have a puncher's chance? Would it kill Manny to fight someone who isn't coming off a career-changing loss?

    Yup

    Mexi-asians Will Rejoice!

    and yup.

    I don't think anyone's giving Mosley a chance. I love watching Pacquiao's fights, but he hasn't had a fight in years where the outcome wasn't a foregone conclusion.

    This should be Pacmans win all the way. The only worry I have is if Mosley connects with a punch or two like he did with Mayweather, Pac tends to add more flurry of punches of his own instead of backing off and dancing around as he recovers like Mayweather did. So if Pac gets hit and attacks, he could get hit a few more times and that's how he'd get hurt or even lose. Pac has taken punches from Cotto though that didn't seem to bother him in the match so who knows if Mosley can punch as hard or as fast before Pac beats the crap out of him.

    My prediction, Pac in 8 via KO or TKO.

    Shane Mosley is one of my favorite fighters, but the best I can hope for in this fight is that he doesn't get hurt, gets a huge payday, and retires.

    Pac should be able to control the fight with just his output. Sugar Shane got a hell of a chin so I see this fight going the distance. Pac by UD.

    Shane is more of a slugger now and no longer the "Power Boxer" he was in his prime at Lightweight.

    Too bad this matchup could not happen when both are in their primes. Mosley (circa 1999) and Pac (circa 2010) at 135 lbs. would have been epic.

    Boring fight. Mosley running away for most of it.

    RIP Boxing indeed. Mosley's girlfriend is a cutie pie though.

    This was the only entertaining part of the fight.

    That's his 2nd whack fight ever since becoming famous.

    He couldn't hit the 39 year old Mosley at will because he doesn't know how to cut off the ring.

    What Mosley did to neutralize his offense was very similar to what Juan Marquez, someone he fought before "improving", did. Only difference is Shane was too old to throw counters.

    Is anyone actually surprised at the results of this fight? Mosley is way past his prime and never stood a chance.

    Pacquiao's going home with the title but Mosley's going home with Bella Gonzales... I guess everybody wins. I guess there's nothing else but to give us that Mayweather fight now?
