A fight such as Mayweather vs. Pacquiao would have been epic in every sense of the word. However, due to circumstances beyond the masses control, that fight will only go down in our dreams. Maybe in the near future, those two can collide, until then, dream on.
As I was browsing the net, I come across an article that tickled my fancy; Money Mayweather vs. Sugar Shane Mosley? Mayweather & his camp keep business rolling per usual, proving one monkey don’t stop the show. These two could see each other in the ring as early as May 1st, no later than May 8th, according to sources.
Check it out:
Floyd Mayweather could face the WBC’s welterweight (147 pounds) super champion, Shane Mosley, on May 1 or May 8, Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, told FanHouse Monday evening.
“I’ve had conversations with Team Mayweather, and I’ll be working in the coming hours and days toward a way that we can get this fight done. The fact is, in the sport of boxing, you may have maybe two or three true Super Fights, and this is one of those two Super Fights — two Americans at the height of the sport’s pound-for-pound list,” said Schaefer.
“It would be a throw-back fight to the days when you had Sugar Ray Leonard against Thomas Hearns,” said Schaefer. “This is truly at that level — an event and a fight which will truly capture not just the boxing fans, but the general public. And I think that all of us involved in the sport of boxing feel that it’s the medicine that is needed.”
The 32-year-old, five-time champion, Mayweather (40-0, 25 knockouts), and the 38-year-old Mosley (46-5, 39 KOs) could meet as a result of two, lucrative pay days that fell out.
Mayweather’s scheduled March 13 megabout with Manny Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs) unraveled as a result of a drug-testing controversy, and Mosley’s Jan. 30 matchup with Andre Berto (25-0, 19 KOs) will not take place as a result of Berto’s pulling out of the fight.
If this goes down for sure, trust I’ll be sitting ringside by way of my couch ready to take on any & all bets!
