The upcoming fight of Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley on May 7, 2011 will be anticipated as one of the the best fight to happen this year.
The decision to pit up Manny Pacquiao with Shane Mosley is a bitter pill to swallow with some notable boxing writers and some desperate aficionados who wanted to pit up instead with either Juan Marquez or Andre Berto for Pacquiao.
The choice of Shane Mosley over the rest of the contenders for Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent is well expected and it doesn’t come to us as a surprise.
The one sided demolition of Manny Pacquiao on Antonio Margarito makes one to wonder who Pacquiao to fight next.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. revealed that the IRS is the reason why his son Floyd Jr. that the mega fight with Pacquiao will not happen this year.
Whatever the reason, Mayweather camp has every reason to duck Pacquiao not only this year but even next year if Pacquiao can beat Margarito handily on their Nov. 13 fight schedule, it will be doubtful then that such a mega fight will ever take place next year.
The defeat of Mosley at 38, is no surprise, his plan of an early knockout of Mayweather in the early rounds did not materialize.
