Mayweather Defeats Mosley via UD

Shane Mosley says he is confident of causing an upset and inflicting a first defeat on Floyd Mayweather when they meet in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Mosley, 38, is the underdog for the non-title welterweight encounter, but is still predicting a knockout.

"I'll go for a knockout, but I'll be shocked to see him laying there on his back like that," said Mosley.

"The key is going to be speed and power. I'm in the best shape of my life and I'm not worried about ring rust."

Mosley, who has 46 wins from 52 fights, has not fought since a ninth-round stoppage of Antonio Margarito in January 2009, but far from being worried about his long sabbatical, he is drawing inspiration from that shock win.

"They were picking Margarito to win by a landslide, and people were worried about my health and saying he was going to retire me," added Mosley, whose WBA welterweight title is not up for grabs.

"I'm saying to you guys again, that isn't going to happen. He's not going to beat me.

"When the fight starts, I'm going to go out there, I'm going to throw some traps here and there, touch him here and there, see what's going on. I'll probably be able to tell from the first bell what kind of fight it's going to be."

While Mayweather, 33, has won most of his 40 bouts with relative ease, some observers have pointed to his split decision win over Oscar de la Hoya in May 2007 as providing the blueprint to defeating him.

De la Hoya troubled Mayweather in the first half of the fight with a stiff left jab, a shot that Mosley agreed could be key at the MGM Grand.

"It's been proven," added Mosley, a three-weight world champion. "Not just Oscar, but other fighters. Some of the southpaws fought him pretty good with their left hands. So maybe it's not a jab, maybe it's just a left hand.

"But that's just one strategy. I can't just base my fight on throwing a jab. You have to be ready for a bunch of different things, because you're fighting a special fighter."

Mayweather, who was set to fight Philippine superstar Manny Pacquiao before a row over pre-fight blood-testing derailed negotiations, said his defence would be his key weapon.

"It's that defence, you can't break through that defence," said five-weight world champion Mayweather. "It's not cool to take punches. If I was in a bunch of wars, I probably wouldn't be here giving you guys interviews right now.

"All I did was constantly beat whoever they put in front of me, I'm never going to get my just due. All these fighters they put in front of me, they've all been cake walks for me.

"I'm Floyd Mayweather - all the rest of them are just fighters."

sugar gonna lose... badly

How can you say that unless you really don't know anything about Shane Mosley. This guy is a warrior and has been in there with the best. Who has Floyd beaten? In my opinion this is Floyd's first real test. I would like to see Floyd win just to see him fight Manny and finally put the debate to rest. This will be an interesting fight Saturday night.

Will we ever get to see Money vs Pac Man?

you hope after this fight it may happen but it will either be down to money (like real money not the boxer) or it will never happen due to the drug testing before and after fights.

I hope we see it but I don't know it might be the fights thats to good to never happen.

Pacqauio would kill mayweather

it would be to close to call imo, I would predict full distance if it happened.

You're not seriously comparing Gatti and Mosley are you?

Pacqauio wouldn't be able to keep up with mayweathers speed

Manny is quicker than Mayweather. What are you talking about? What about power? Floyd beat him there to?

at this stage of their careers, yeah i am.

but who knows who would win, manny decides to take a bloodtest or mayweather says no drug testing then we'll find out.

I too look for a good, close fight that could go to either one.

Floyd has the best defense in the game, but I don't know how the defense will hold up against the speed and the power with which Manny throws. If Mayweather sits in the corner and does that little standing to the side with his left glove on his chin Manny might put him in the third row. You could pull that off against Zab Judah, but not Manny Pacquiao.

Wait, Mayweather isn't pussing out of this fight? Well.. That's a pleasant surprise.

More like being cornered on a wall.

I worry about Shane physical condition. Being 38 and fighting arguably the best defensive fighter of all time in FLoyd, I don't think he can go the distance without losing gas. Bro Nazim ought to have the strategy to beat Mayweather the question is can Shane execute it.

I'm rooting for Shane but my money is on UD/SD FLoyd.

yeah it seems like mayweather is just playing with him now just waiting for the perfect highlight reel punch. it's ridiculous how fast mayweather is...

look at them in the corners. mayweather is not even breathing hard... the guy is a genetic freak.

so mayweather won... handily. didn't see that coming :rolleyes: he's the best people.
