Pacquiao vs Mosley Rumor

Pacquiao vs Mosley – There are rumors coming out that Pacquiao’s next opponent will be Shane Mosley. The idea is, Pacquiao vs Mayweather, but Mayweather already booked Juan Manuel Marquez and Pacquiao don’t want to wait for the result of the fight. I guess Pacquiao is in a hurry to have the most number of boxing match because he’s gonna retire this year.

After Manny Pacquiao destroyed Ricky Hatton on Saturday night, most of the post-fight talk centered on the likelihood of Pacquiao fighting the winner of the July 18 fight between Floyd Mayweather and Juan Manuel Marquez. But Shane Mosley, the top welterweight in the world, thinks he should be Pacquiao’s next opponent.

“I’m definitely campaigning for a fight with Manny Pacquiao,” Mosley said in an interview with “That would be a great fight the world wants to see. He’s definitely No. 1 pound for pound right now, I’m the No. 1 welterweight right now and I’ve been pound-for-pound before, so let’s get it on. … I’ll be ready.”

But will Pacquiao be ready for Mosley? Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, says that Pacquiao’s next fight will be whatever makes for the biggest fight for the most money. Roach added that if Mosley wants that fight, he’ll have to lose a few pounds, because Pacquiao doesn’t want to move all the way up to 147.

My own opinion is that Pacquiao vs. Mayweather needs to happen, and I’ll be a little disappointed if Pacquiao’s next opponent is anyone other than Mayweather. But it’s not Pacquiao’s fault that Mayweather vs Marquez happened first, and if Pacquiao decides he doesn’t want to wait around for the next two and a half months to see how Mayweather vs. Marquez turns out, who can blame him?

And if that’s Pacquiao’s decision, I think Mosley is probably the opponent who makes the most sense. He’s a well-known, marketable boxer who’s coming off a big win over Antonio Margarito, and his style should make for an interesting fight with Pacquiao. If the next opponent for Pacquiao isn’t Mayweather, it should be Mosley.

  1. I agree.

    But Mosely has a motive. Even if he loses to Pacquiao, no big thing to him. He, as well as the rest of the world, could always say he was past his prime and aging. Still, a fight with Pacquiao could bring him more than $10,000,000. Not bad for an old man. Pacquiao would probably see the fight as inviting. Cotto doesn’t want to fight Pacquiao. So why not go for the other welterweight champ. If he beats Mosely, he will set a world’s record of winning championships in 7 different weight classes. If he loses, he will still walk away with $15,000,000 to $20,000,000.

  2. Both Floyd Mayweather and Shane Mosley were bred to be fighters like a farmer’s prized horse. Both guys grew up with boxing gloves hanging from their crib ceilings. The debating can go on and on forever. The bottom line is neither guy is going to give you an inch – both fighters are relaxed in the ring, comfortable and fluid in such a way that it’s easy to believe boxing pumps through their veins in absence of blood. Mayweather vs Mosley im really looking forward to. Mayweather looked untouchable against the smaller Marquez and Mosley was awesome against Margarito. That fight was 18 months ago and previous to that Mosley looked ordinary against a washed up Mayorga. So is Shane still in top nick? I see Mosley starting fast using his jab to take the early rounds. Floyd usually starts slowly but will take control around round 5. The usual dropping of the shoulder and lightning counter punching will take Floyd home to a points victory and hopefully setting up the fight with Manny.

  3. This fight would be a JOKE, we want to see a real top 10 lb X lb fight Pacquiao vs Mayweather / or Sergio Martínez / or J. M. Marquez/…. if not…. Arum and Pacquiao will look like little girls

  4. Pacquiao will win no questions its just a question of how many rounds befor mosley gets but on his back side.

  5. Yes, it’s gonna be a good fight. A fight already on Mat 7. It,s a good match rather than the Pacquiao-Marquez or Pacquiao-Mayweather. We have seen Pacquiao-Marquez twice. And, Pacquiao-Mayweather should be the last before Pacquiao retires.

  6. Its plain & simple mayweather is just a big as pussy even his dad knows dat manny would whip his ass floyd is just being a lil bitch dats y he kept wanting olympic drug testing wen him an pacman were gonna fight he was just finding excuses

  7. i think pacquiao & gayweather fight wont happen.floyd obviously keeps on making excuses…a coward
