“Size Matters” –Mosley to Pacquiao

Mosley vs Pacquiao - Shane Mosley gets his hands full on Manny Pacquiao that size and age does matter. The two-weight world champion challenges the Filipino ring icon; Mosley is on Pacquiao’s heels vying for his WBO welterweight title in Las Vegas which will be this coming May 7.

As the whole world knows, Mosley has the strength and size fit for a king of the ring, and may be quite a bit intimidating to Pacquiao. Furthermore, Sugar Shane Mosley has reached the apex of kingship in boxing with his 39 KOs and a staggering record in the sport. That would be in contrast to Pacquiao who won the world’s cheers at first by flyweight and now steps down from light middleweight.

The world will also never forget how he had beaten up Antonio Margarito at the weight of 154 pounds and made monkeyshines with himself because of his size by taking charge tabs with Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto on his soaring velocity to the pound-for-pound rubrics.

For Mosley’s part, who will be giving his 55th professional comeback reveals that whatever it takes, no one, not even Pacquiao will halt him to deliver an impressive knockout body shot. “I’ve been in there with different guys and, you know, Manny PAcquiao is a great fighter, he’s a hard worker and does everything right, that a pound-for-pound champion should do.” He added.

Although with his strong build, one of the disadvantages Mosley has over Pacquiao is his age, because in boxing, the age 39 is equivalent to 60 in earth years. And with his advancing age, comes advancing body parts and declining strength as well. Now Sugar, how’s that for one giddy body shot?

Pacquiao Feels Sorry for Being Grounded from Basketball During Training

Manny Pacquiao played hoops even before his big fight against Sugar Shane Mosley on May 7 at MGM Grand. He shoots hoops one day before he departed from Manila to Los Angeles straight into his Wild Card Gym. A rule of thumb was imposed by Freddie Roach that that the Boxing champ should not be allowed to play basketball four weeks into his scheduled flight. This ultimatum took effect since he trained and sparred for his fight against Antonio Margarito. Roach confirmed this and firmly said that this rule will still be as strong as steel even after Pacquiao’s training against Sugar Shane Mosley. The prohibition starts the moment they start training in LA.

Sturdy sparring partners Shawn Porter and David Rodella will shield punch drizzles from Manny Pacquiao, along with two others who simulate Mosley’s antics. Introducing Rashad Halloway and Karim Mayfield. Mayfield is as tall as Mosley and he will be expected to bind and strengthen Pacquiao’s defenses. On the other hand, Halloway exudes the same speed as Mosley and he will assist in the Filipino champ’s training for the quick exchange faster than the blink of an eye on May 7, 2011

Pacquiao for his part admits that he might not be able to play hoops because he will be restrained by a tight schedule. But he confirmed that if he sees a window of opportunity to play when they go back to Manila, he will definitely embrace into the game. In the coming weeks, let’s wish him luck as he embarks on a more stringent phase of training on his way to championship. More of this as we watch Pacquiao vs Mosley Fight on the 7th of May. Be there and be a judge.

Statistics and Hunches, at Mosley’s Ease

Despite the pressure, Mosley still hangs on, after all, fans can sit down and argue that he was beating down Mayweather, in the first few rounds of their fight, although he was floored by Pretty Boy all throughout.
