Pacman’s next test of legacy comes in the form of black American fighter SUGAR Shane Mosley. Groups note that Manny Pacquiao has never fought a black American fighter and Sugar Shane Mosley is known as a Mexican Assassin, picking apart his Latin foe’s. Although race and certain culture matchup’s help sell big fights, a lot of us are glad to have a fight to watch with all the waiting around for a fight with Floyd. I certainly hope a drug test won’t get in the way of this boxing match from happening as both of these fighters have had their names associated with the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs. One thing is for sure May 7th we will see a classic southpaw-orthodox boxing thriller. Thats another reason to live for many enthusiasts and fight aficionado’s. Theres been talks of him retiring but he never stopped. The Filipino? Some go as far to say that he is the greatest to ever do it. Nonetheless, he never ceases to amaze the stadium’s he packs with lightning speed and razor sharp blows. Mosley, 49-6 ,is 39 years old and showed signs of jet lag in his second to last outing against Floyd Mayweather and his last he was unable to dispose of the snake. He fought a 12 round draw with the younger Sergio Mora.
Styles makes fights. Mosley knocked Margarito out in the 9th round. Margarito took Manny’s beating for a dozen rounds.Pacquiao knocked out Cotto in round 12. Mosley dropped a 12 round decision to Cotto. Both of these guys have speed, skill,experience, heart and a legacy to cement. We will see who puts it all on the line and fights from the warrior within. This isn’t about race or the color of anybody’s skin. We all bleed red. Stay tuned to REGIMENBOXING for more os Sugar Shane Mosley vs. Manny Pacquiao
