The time has come for Pacquiao and Mosley to face each other in the square ring at MGM Grand on Saturday 7 May, Sunday in some part of the world. After months of endless hype, finally we will see one of the greatest fights in boxing history.
Who will you pick then?
The oddsmakers in the gambling town of Las Vegas made PacMan a 6-1 favorite to beat Mosley and defend his WBO welterweight title but Sugar Shane dismissed any suggestions that he is past his prime and was in decline but not to mention that he is 39 years old already. Although some critics would say that there could be surprises in the early rounds and in fact, Mosley has said that it’s going to get very interesting, very quick. Whether Mosley is not in a decline and not too old to fight Pacquiao, we must understand that having slow reflexes against Pacquiao is a big problem knowing that he has a lightning fast hands and very quick to evade counter punch. And before you knew it, he is already long been gone and out of reach. I don’t know if Mosley can keep up with that which brings to another question.
But there are more on what boxing gloves Manny are wearing on the fight night than the fight itself. He will use a pair of yellow boxing gloves that symbolizes hope to end poverty. Which Manny have said, that his biggest fight is how to end poverty in the Philippines.
Nonetheless, whatever is the outcome of the fight tomorrow; Pacquiao is guaranteed to earn $20 (whooping) million price money and remember that’s not to include the share of the pay per view that could possibly even reach up to $1.5 million sales.
And one more thing though, Pacquiao VS Mosley is not the only important sport to watch tomorrow. The Rossoneri is trying to take the Scudetto for the first time since 2004 with even just a draw against Roma.
