mayweatheris getting closer to taking place here
mayweather40-0 with 25 knockouts
mosley46-5 with 39 kos a 12 round
fightwithout a title but there is much more at stake than the title the wonder of this could get the biggest prize in boxing that is not a belt but it's uh a paycheck with a lot of zeros behind it if they get the fight with manny pacquiao, the winner of this could receive between 30 and 40 million dollars in a package to fight with manny pacquiao immediately after this fight.
Oddsmakers and experts favor Mayweather. Many people think that Shane Mosley is the last one to receive money. He thinks he can do it. Dave. How do you see the fight? I think Mayweather will try to set up Mosley Moses. He will have to choose one to attack him, use his exceptional speed, at some point he will make Mayweather get up and fight him. Mayweather will try to turn his back on the great defense he voted for and this will be a game of chess. match until one of these guys decides to come out of that shell, we don't know when that's going to happen, there could be a lot of strings attached because Mosley is going to try to push Mayweather out of his comfort zone, so there's a lot of I don't know when that's going to happen, but Mosley is the one.
He will have to do well in the fight. I'll tell you what, anything can happen in this world of boxing, as you well know, I see Shane Mosley, Dave, in Temple. Watch Shane come out and try to establish himself right away by trying to land some powerful punches and I think we'll know right away if he can land them. It could be a tough night for Mosley for Mayweather and a good night for Mosley. If Mayweather can do what he has always been able to do and that is defend against strong attacks because this is the first guy that tries to attack him early.
This Mosley guy is maybe a better fighter than some of the guys he's fought, but he doesn't. forget that floyd mayweather has defeated guys like juan manuel marquez in his last fight he beat ricky hatton uh oscar de la hoya zab judas sambay mitchell former world champion toro gotti demarcus corley a former two time world champion uh jose louis castle carlos famous hernández the big the late diego corrales angel manfredi gennaro hernández a hall of famer so I mean he had wins over all these guys so I mean floyd mayweather has fought some really really good fighters in his career if you look at one of the hall greats of all time. the famous sugar ray leonard, so with that being said, i mean, floyd mayweather has beaten a litany of fantastic fighters, as has shane
mosley, shane mosley in his prime certainly had all the tools, his hooks a little wide, did he?
Can you land those wide hooks? I know, but he has power, he has speed, he has a hard jab, he has good combinations, he is an excellent counterpuncher and he has great adaptability in the rings. Those are all advantages for Shane Mosley and of course at this stage, in this era, can he score? enough punches to stand out, possibly one of the best defensive fighters of all time, I don't know the answer to that, that's what the fight is about, Mosley, in my opinion, needs to stop quick, he needs to put pressure on Floyd and try to land punches powerful to take away the close rounds Mayweather has to land a lot of powerful punches because Mayweather will probably be busier and will probably land more shots so then I ask that late bird how it's scored she's one of the official judges today how it's scored In the round where one guy lands a bunch of punches and the other guy lands two or three big punches, she said if the two with three big punches really hurt a guy, stagger them, move them, she says the round goes that way, otherwise the other guy gets It's based on the buildup of hits and aggressiveness, so you know, some people score on the damage factor if you hurt the guy a lot or if you get all three or four hits in.
Strong ones that give that round to the side. I did it with De La Hoya, so I thought Hoya beat Mosley but now listening to Adelaide Bird we have the advantage, we know how he's going to score the close rounds unless Mosley can switch to Mayweather during the course of a round, That Mayweather hits him several times that we hope they do and then You have the factor. Can he put together the
full12 rounds? Will he try to steal rounds? Mayweather is a guy that very few people have taken out of that comfort zone. De La Hoya did it for several rounds of that fight, but most guys don't get to him early and Mayweather dictates the defensive stance and sets up the fight from behind. that and if it enters that area then it is very difficult to overcome another factor that is subliminal but it is a factor that I want to mention is that mosley is a very popular and very loved guy and floyd mayweather is a guy that if I don't know him, it is easy to don't like him because of his constant talk about money, the foul language, just his behavior towards him, the boastful attitude, he's an easy guy who doesn't like him, that will have a factor with the judges, uh, dave moretti and robert hoyle.
He probably has too much experience for that because they are very experienced judges, but it can be a subliminal factor in the round being so close that you can't make up your mind and although you and I sometimes give equal rounds, we do it when we think. The judges may be divided, but professional judges don't give even rounds and if they are looking for a reason, can you win one round, maybe two and that could be it? It will take one round to make the difference in a close fight almost like many people think floyd mayweather ages his youth, I should say in this case, in this case, agent who has a lot of experience and is also very, very smart in the ring, could you continue with fox mosley and make it easier? 10-9 each round, somehow I don't expect that to be the stance of this fight.
I think Moises will win, there will be the final part early and then they will settle into something and you look at Mosley historically. four of the five guys who beat him were just bigger guys, they lost twice to Winky Wright and also to Vernon Forrest, who he just hadn't had a good fight against and then of course there was a very close loss to Miguel Cotto, but also against the Wild. type of fighter i did the fight when he fought ricardo mayorga and he was on his way to losing that fight and he caught mayorga in the last round of the fight to retire him but he was on his way to losing that fight but mayorga and winky right guys very difficult to fight with mayorga a wild man who throws punches from all directions uh, like see mod from years ago, but even wilder and winky wright with that tight defense almost impossible to hit and an excellent boxer who couldn't understand him in both fights and the same with vernon forrest, so all three fighters had unique characteristics that are different from floyd mayweather extraordinary mayweather like leonardo dicaprio with a hat pulled down over his cap, but we know that with giulio we know that they are don't fool us i will tell you that The stars are up here is michael buffer ladies and gentlemen at this time we would like to honor america and with dedication to all the men and women who now serve in the armed forces of the united states and put themselves in the path of harm every day, please welcome here to sing the national anthem grammy award winning recording superstar chris brown oh say can you see in the first light of dawn who has brought us stripes and illuminated us through the dangerous struggle For the walls that we saw so bravely and rack is regular, the bombs that exploded in the air gave proof during the night that a flag was still there, oh, say, that starry banner of escape or the land of the free in the house of the brain chris brown with his performance of the national anthem of the united states of america mosley and mayweather are both from the USA that's all we'll have for the anthems tonight david, let's take a look at the end of the tape it's on the metric system for countries that have the metric system and countries that do not I will tell you that Mosley is an inch taller, weighs a pound more, is five years older and has a two-inch advantage in reach and the rules, not be standing, count eight, there are no three rules of knocking down the fighter could not be saved by the bell at all. only the referee can stop the fight, but the doctors have a lot to say in case of accidental fouls, we go to the scorecard after the fourth round and if there are any accidental fouls, Dave and I will explain the rule to them as it becomes relevant.
The course of our fight in the development of our fight, so right now we are moments away from the fighters starting to make their individual paths. It will be Shane Mosley first and the crowd will first get to see it on the big screens here at the mgm grand as shane mosby begins to climb 39 knockouts from just the great california wins over oscar de la hoya twice phil holliday francisco vargas louis coloso and ricardo mayorga up richardson with him jimmy glenn durian gustavo in sugar who has a lot of fans, he lives in southern california and has a lot of support on the hollywood set, they love him, future member of the hall of fame, with great fantastic men, bridgette jimmy glenn, this guy is a great boxing hall of famer when he retires, he's already done enough to do that. this will put an exclamation point on his career and give him a multi-million dollar payday to retire against manny pacquiao no matter what happens in the fight it's been a career for this man sugar shane mosley very rarely dave I have seen the entire movie. crowd standing in an arena for the presentation of the fighters, this is one of the few that is there really excited about this fight that has all the brilliance of any world I have tried to fight and that I have covered and done eight hundred and eighty and three world wrestlers ahead I don't know when there will be a statistician again to help us prepare dobo hikoshima tamikotel gary todd and dan raphael we appreciate your contributions and of course the guys at brenner's reichel and the entire staff at steve brenner always appreciate all your help in that sense the game is dominating and that's what I do and I do your number one job yeah the guy said let's go he said no no I'm not going to do it let's make him wait but let's see how long. he does this by now there should be a Nevada commission inspector there to force him to make a move soon, he wants to delay a couple of minutes if possible to make him wait because they can see it on the monitors. inside and see that he's not coming out of his dressing room we're not going out here all our things all our things are ruined you started my video yet, did you start the video but the video is fine, yeah the circuit started again?
He is insisting on some circus act. They said your videos. You know they're standing in the ring like that. Remember many sports positions because this fight is actually a production. I guess this is the circus act. Hey while he makes his introductions? Mayweather makes his entrance and the crowd sees him and reacts, he's coming in with Roger Mayweather, his trainer, Raphael Garcia, this is his office, he loves it, he lives in Las Vegas, he's a Michigan native, but he's been here for several years. now and he wanted to put on the circus that he has so far, so now we are approaching as hosts for tonight along with dave von temple and here is michael bush, ladies and gentlemen of the mgm grand in las vegas, nevada, united states, promotions by Mayweather and Golden Boy Promotions is proud to present the main event of the night, 12 rounds of boxing in the welterweight division, unlimited talk and text sponsored for 60 per month.

I'll let you fight inside, tying up in this fight, that's what Mayweather will certainly do on the inside he hasn't opened up offensively yet at all floyd mayweather why he's a great defensive fighter come in and shane is fast himself this is a tough thing on the inside penny bayless has to get to work right away and kenny told me that this type of fight was expected to be a lot of inside stuff and not only would it be mayweather who would hold, but it will be mosley as he tries to get in to try to get in knowing that mayweather can have set a trap, so if he doesn't score, he can tie it, Dave, you're looking over here, but that last punch that Mayweather went through showed hand speed, considerable, tremendous hand speed, and he shook him and pushed him down even though his hands hit the canvas it was a push down instead of any kind of floyd on here at the beginning mayweather in the red on the left of the screen like looking towards you now and off to the left is shane Mosley's hand speed is considerable from most and both from most and from Mayweather but Mayweather catches my attention, David almost throws good hard and hard blows, good hand speed from both of them and the chess game is there , we have quick strikes, some bursts of action and we have had ties when mosley takes his chance is that he doesn't like it, he ties and mayweather in the same way if he doesn't like what's available inside, he's tying 35 seconds ago, In my opinion, no one has won, this round shot to the belly goes there by Shane Ducks. here comes the bell to end the first round of this fight there's Dave, I think we're going to end up looking at that as a split, right, everything's fine, everything's fine, I just took the bucket on the side here, so let's all. because you need to calm down, you also control with your hands, there is a good shot from Mosey, but Mayweather follows him and then this is where he falls after they tangle, so Shane, who had not taken down, was lucky to have passed him and was . slipping because if Mosey had uh actually Mayweather had touched Mosley, that would have been scored or taken down, here we go, two floyds stand right in front of him, there's not much movement on his feet, dave, which means he has a lot. of confidence in his uh, you know his skill and hand speed, he thinks he can get Moisés into his kill zone and that's what he wants to do is get him in, look at me with that, look at Mayweather with the shoulder roller , the great defense technicians and everything off the shoulder again Mosley comes in and can't connect anything that's Floyd's defense that's the best punch of the fight did he get hurt but his legs looked good?
You know, this guy is in excellent condition, so he could dabble in that. blow, he is not down like before, he is a different Mayweather because of what Moisés now forced him to do. I have to say, the way Mayweather is reacting for the first time, it's a great round for him, but you know, the surprising thing is that it's as close as it was the first round. and we couldn't make up our mind this is still just a 10-9 round and it's clearly close for Mosley, he's staggering twice with several right hands. I can't wait to see reruns of this, you're right, he's getting Moses. and that's no doubt about it, that's what we do, okay, you gotta go over the shoulder, look where Mayweather's left hand is not a good idea against Shane Mosley, who drills him there, one of the few guys who got to the top that way. then they hit him and bend him almost to the ground if we see that later in the fight he could go down, but that was a great sequence for Shane and Shane still has enough, I mean when you see an aged fight, it's like he goes back to Holyfield , can do it.
I can't go down anymore Shane at 38 he can still go down because he saw that opening and he took advantage of it and jumped right on him, his first fighter fast enough to get over that low left hand like that and it really hurt Mayweather floyd mayweather said hey , you gotta start boxing your box, you know Mosey would love to drag him into a fight, it would be perfect for him, let's see what happens with Mayweather's left hand below, lands Amanda, the only one is Mayweather, I'm boxing, he knows no. he wants to be cornered so he's cornered he has to fight, grab him and make him walk on his heels shane hasn't really done anything this round after one minute and 15 seconds they weren't going to leave Hungary to go to Mosley's. power zone here and give him a right hand to go all it takes is a series of punches for Mosley to come back in this round, but Floyd is out of the boxing by this point, Rosie is not doing enough in this third round of the fight.
Look at that left hand lowered and able to fly because he is so fast in his that you have extraordinary speed. There are 35 seconds left in this round. Mosley hasn't done enough this time to win this round with a stiff jab. trying to do it right, trying to trick mayweather and see if he can land a right hand, he grabs it, so mayweather got rocked in the second round it actually gave him adrenaline, he came out like he was a little distracted from the circus and all the festivities and now he's in a fight so Dave we're not too close to call in the second round definitely Mosley that's Floyd's yeah we have a close fight so far I hope you know about the judges and when it starts that crossing, we said.
You, that step, step, we work on that Shane, we got it ready, but I don't want you to doubt yourself, stay behind your speed, stop looking at a hurdy-gurdy, it'll close, it'll get closer, stop looking to hurt it, stay behind your speed, that's the difference, we discussed this son, yes, hey, you have to understand it, the main thing you have to do is keep working with that stick that is your teeth, much more confidence, well, they took away the play after Mosley had been dominant in the second round in the third round mayweather outworked mosey and hit hard eight to one in the third round third round here we go let's see if shane moser can bounce back mayweather continues after being in a bunch of problems in the second round, he certainly changed it in the third round to Floyd and Floyd catches him with a left hook.
Those types of blows don't hurt too much but they certainly attract the attention of the judges and it is Floyd's aggressiveness now that will be able to rack up points here unless moses comes back to land some power shots again well mayweather started to come up with the left hook he is able to get there quickly shane misses a lot and the reason for that is floyd mayweather's quickness on red that's your left target coming up short but look for the right hand to come behind soon those are positioning punches for floyd meanwhile mosey isn't doing enough again as they say he attacks but nothing lands well, It's such a tempting target when you look at where Mayweather's left hand has been most of the time. time in their fight from the bottom with the trap set and Mosley, when he misses it, then the left hook is there for Mayweather and he can score with it.
Floyd is so fast that you don't stop because the guy stops him. interesting fight you know, mayweather stepped it up after he got hurt and we're seeing more and that right hand coming from him when he gets mosey to come to him. mosey just isn't busy enough right now and all the plays are being taken away and This is what the judges are going to score in this round in favor of Mayweather because here, yes, Mayweather, he has to raise the bar a little. Notice that his left hand is down and with Floyd's speed, he's going to get nailed with that right hand.
Freud it's just a matter of time, he's not someone who's going to play you like Mayweather with his left hand down low, well you know Freud is doing what he needs to do, he's boxing and Shane needs to use power punches and he's not successful. Now that's Mayweather's round and a good round for Floyd. Look at it, counterpunch, hand speed, that's it. He outscored Moses 16-2 with about 10 seconds left in the round, so the dominant hand and some of those right hands were really strong. Shots and good body work also some quality power, don't worry about it, keep doing what you're doing for that, so again in the first round, put that club there baby, take the handles, don't hesitate , is correct and in that round Mayweather lands. eight of 15 power shots, when a guy goes over 50 percent in a power shot department, based on these stats, he could be about to get his opponent in real trouble, so we'll follow that and see if that changes, well, let's look. that as we move into the fifth round, colonel bob sheridan with dave tempo the mgm grand guard arena las vegas nevada sugar shane mosley has been taking on a task in the later rounds after having a tremendous second round, but he hasn't done much since then he has to pick up his own pace and apparently he is trying to do it that day, but this guy is such a good defensive fighter that it is difficult, surely Shane can't wait here, he has to get off.
Brother Naseem told him that between rounds that you have to know that you have to put pressure on this guy, he is trying to do it, but it is very difficult with this guy because he is so good defensively that he can back away from a situation. You're going to hit Mayweather, he can back off making a big mistake waiting for this. boy he needs to be on top first, it's hard to do that with a guy as fast as floyd mayweather but that's what you have to do, you have to try to do it even if you don't succeed, keep going, don't wait because you will. getting beaten to death by this good guy, he tapped Mayweather with his gloves twice in this round, you know, for half of this round, now floyd just started boxing, mayweather comes in and they counter him in the third round when mayweather had to stand up and fight along with the fourth round because Moisés wouldn't let him adapt to the way he likes to fight, he may be about to adapt to the way he likes to fight now, well that's right as he's going through the third and fourth round and here in the fifth round, mosey is just having a tough time with floyd, floyd is out of boxing, there you go, he comes up with the jam, he's short and mayweather looks be backing away, but then he can throw a shot with his right hand and throw the kind of punch that no other fighter can deliver, you know?
Mosley comes in, closes the kill zone but doesn't attack, look here, here now, that time he attacked, it's the first time in the round he's done it, he has to do more of that charge, he won't want to box this . boy he's going to make this a fight no matter what because he can't win the fight boxing this guy with double jab, stronger right hand, walking on his heels, but like i said, mayweather goes with floyd, he can't settle with this. Moses had to change like that, that big shot is coming down the road, okay, here we go, round number six scheduled for the 12th, as you know, Mayweather won three, four and five, Mosley won the second round, the first round could have been either way, I'll tell you.
This is if Mayweather won the first round according to some of the judge's scorecards. Moises is in serious trouble not being able to do anything about his fight unless he stops this guy and the way he's boxing now doesn't seem likely to happen at least. It's not as likely as it seemed in the second round, he caught him once and he caught him a second time, that's how he's going to attack, but he has to keep doing it and the question is, at 38, Dave, is he physically capable of do it well. I saw on a stool between the last rounds, your answer at that moment would be no, if Mayweather keeps the fast base on him.
Now Mayweather isn't boxing well, now Shane is attacking him and when he attacks and then gets out of there, he's fine, so let him. This guy boxes you on the inside, stay on the outside and then attacks when you go after him, he's going to totally attack, boy here's his back and hands flying so he's waiting again. He is no good, you can't reach him like this. You have to throw a lot of punches. I'm going to do a real assault on his mind right now, Floyd wants to drag him back into a boxing match and then land his right hand there, it just bounced off his head, it wasn't bad, but he did it, it's the sixth round, it's scheduled for 12.
Until now, Mayweather boxedWith Mosley, even though Mosley is having a decent sixth round, he still seems to have a little gas because he's hanging his left hand. Floyd can make him jump and he's nervous, you know, when he attacks him, he passes out and jumps. the jab is faster there's shane with the wide shot and the body that doesn't hurt two quick hands in that's just incredible and that's the difference in the fight right now mosley won't be able to win as long as floyd mayweather can continue to do it This is because that Moses, you're right, he was on the attack and Freud just showed his exceptional speed by being able to counter this guy back and then to the right, so now he's clearly boxing him in this round and this is going to be a Mayweather round In a round where Mosey probably won the first minute, 20 seconds and 30 seconds of the round, but ending an easy round for the judges to score because of Floyd's hard punches, Landon's hard punches and right hands, no one has been down.
Mayweather was shaking in the second round, but held on and came back to take every round since then, including the sixth round. I read in the paper today that and Moses people said if we don't plan, a doesn't work, we'll go to plan b and plan c, you better do it quickly, now it's time for the audible floyd mayweather senior who is suffering. from lung disease and here's classic Mayweather going through Mosley only the fast speed doesn't look like you can get by and then he does, he also cut him off with three left hands and another sequence right now the emoji looks like gas, that floyd looks like was in a company, we are going to the second half of the fight and so far, with the exception of the second round, it has been all Floyd Mayweather's extraordinary speed, his boxing skills, his defensive skills, he better go to this plan c quickly because Whatever he's done up to this point, with the exception of that momentary thrill in the second round, it's been all Floyd Mayweather jab, you've got to do more than that, you've got to load up on powerful shots, catch his son again and the question is, you know?
Now I'm in the seventh round and I'm a 38 year old fighter, although his body is in tremendous shape, he's still a 38 year old guy who's been in some wars in tremendous shape, which is different from a 33 year old guy who He has never been hurt and he really has. I had a lot of tough fights and you're asking the 38 year old to bounce back not only to stay elite but he has to come from behind and dominate the second half of the fight, no one won the first minute of this round so that for Shane he absolutely has to take this or he's really getting out of the fight, you know, right now his hand speed has slowed down considerably, he's not going to get rid of Mayweather, he's just taking him to school on this moment, Mayweather can throw the shot from the outside as Mosley approaches.
For him that instinctive knowledge of when to let go of that right hand and that's why Mosley starts to come in and try to punch, but when he comes in and starts to punch, the right hand has already gotten there, Mayweather Floyd is able to counter his shots. he can't land his right hand, he's not throwing enough, he seems worried with his arm, he looks exhausted to me right now, even there, his right hand didn't have the power head three rounds ago, he landed it but didn't hurt Floyd. mayweather at all this is going to be frustrating exquisite sense of timing while he's watching this give me something like this i have the same speed i have more power mosley i can't do anything with him total demand right now you're not at floyd mayweather's speed, Which is a pretty high bar to clear and start looking like a guy who's been out for over a year and makes it to round number eight here at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Colonel Bob showed off along with dave bontempo shane mosley 46-5 39 knockouts one last knockout mayweather has had fights but mayweather was out boxing almost every round in this fight we are in the 8th now they tried to hit moses with very cold water on his head in the middle rounds to see if he could get some kind of second wind here, keep it clean, let's keep it clean, keep it clean right now and just fight this guy and his feet are right next to him, he becomes a bigger fighter in terms of reach only by the way he moves his shoulder and head against the textbook to throw a lead right against the right, but he can do it and escape and it is absolutely clear to me at this stage that something really dramatic is going to be necessary if no one is going to come back in. this fight look at that sly right hand again that right hand directs the left jab just touch it just touch that's all he has to do and then look for the hook right hand which is an extraordinary round without much landing but he can certainly resist you he can't look for brakes on the brake, he will fight with the brake, he will dismiss Shane every time, yes, he will take you off the break, he will catch you clean, very good, you will have to sit down and force the exchange with this guy. change your level man, walk around that stick and fire shane, you have to get out of here, this is it, well, mosley was complaining, it's his turn in boxing, protect yourself at all times in the good routine Boy, you don't go to work and then the barking.
It started between the two guys, okay, we're getting to the ninth round, here we go, but on my score sheet, Dave, I have Mayweather winning by at least four rounds, we don't know how they scored the first round, we know. Mosley won the second round, so Mayweather is leading by at least four rounds on our results sheet. We're down to four odds left, so it's a must for most if he wants to get back into this fight and it just doesn't look like he can. he has the hand speed and he can't land the big right hand, it only happened once and that was in the second round, yes, I think he has come in and should knock out territory now, and that's what you know, against the best fighter of the world, that's a herculean task Mosley made a statement in the second round and it's been all Mayweather after that, now Mosley has kind of a second wind because if you notice he's on his toes, he's bouncing, he's punching, if he can continue fighting this way, it's okay. but no matter what he does, mayweather never panics, you see how quickly he avoids the shots and again he gets on his toes bouncing, he has the second victory that he has adrenaline for, but he can't land the shot that mayweather did have in the On the verge of panicking in the second round, that shows you what a great fighter he is, when you could be in that kind of trouble, don't go down because of conditioning and then just hang in there and don't get hurt the rest of the round. come back and get into your game and started boxing with Roger Mayweather yelled at him in the corner between the second and third round telling him that you better start boxing once he started boxing he started to take control with his right hand coming in Kenny Bayless.
The way to do a great job refereeing this fight is not especially easy. He tries to let the fighters fight while their hands are free. He worries about heads coming together. The heads have not been affected. Morsi's hand speed just isn't there. Mayweather Mayweather's speed is extraordinary. It's going to be very frustrating for Shane Mosley in this fight because he can't do anything with him at this stage trying to stop him and he just can't do it. Moses has been the one fighting. opponents and they're doing it from there, I don't think so, that's the main winner extending with the jab, the right hand catches the shoulder, that's the big problem against Mayweather and then he's there and he lands the right hand. the shoulder, he gets the jaw, he gains that offset over and over again, how is it possible that a guy who is giving up two inches of reach can turn his left shoulder forward and then reach with his right hand and is giving up two inches because He swings back and forth and then comes into action and has extraordinary skill and quickness to be able to do that at this level.
Lloyd Mayweather is an extraordinary talent as has Shane Mosley throughout his career, but tonight he belongs to Floyd Mayweather and me. Suppose if a guy can execute the way he's executing it and can do what he says he can do to get away with the kind of character he is, get away with it, Jane tries everything she can do, but can't understand this. The guy is too quick on his feet, too quick with his hands, his defensive shoulder turns as Dave talks about calling out Mayweather's replay and what he does, he doesn't bet or go into bursts so you can't catch him coming into the half. from a combination he lands one comes back another comes back with both on top and hits him in the belly he does so many little things that reminds me you know about boxing I said you should describe Ricardo López a great minimum weight fighter who had the time for approximately 12 years with floyd mayweather, he's so skilled, but it's hard to even give yourself a chance to pick him up when you learn one thing, he's doing something, there you go, with the movement of your head, dodge the bait and then back to punching territory , now a lot of guys who dodge the hook will come back and reload.
Mayweather ducks the hook, lunges forward and throws a sneaky right hand for the hook. Whatever is there for him, it's one of the things that makes him so special is that he does it consistently, you just can't get him to slow down to take a look at the two fighters, as we can see them from near. You know, Floyd looks like he's just having fun and Moses really does. Being working right now, isn't he just getting nailed to the body again trying to get something, so he gets a counter right hand from floyd mayweather? They failed Shane two or three times and he didn't get off until he passed, so that's the age he sees, but he can't take it off.
It is also fatigue at this stage. You have to give me something. You're not moving your hands you dropped your hand speed you're going to have to hit with it instead of continuing to wait for a spot you're in there looking for a perfect shot there's nothing move your hands man step forward and come back tell me I'm coming to move my hands, I'm going to step up and come back, say it, it is and there's a little bit of desperation coming from brother Naseem Richardson, the problem is the fact is he's fatigued, he's 38 years old and he's been getting a lot Floyd's punishment and quality punishment numbers tell us something about the last round Mayweather 19 of 52 in his landed punches and of those 19 probably a dozen of them were good quality shots, maybe a six or seven on the meter. power again. doing a great job of keeping this fight clean because this could get smoothed out quickly, especially if Floyd started taking a few shots here and there, but that hasn't happened, Kenny has had this under complete control at all times and it's been a pretty clean fight. a very clean fighter, yeah, when you don't look too much at the referee, he's doing a good job, he just goes in there and gave his one harsh warning to Mosey and that was it, well, first they got through the first minute, both guys.
Now let's see who wants to win this round and winning the round is no longer enough. He has to take it down. He's going to kill him. He's almost fine. He definitely has to knock him out based on our score. And here's another round that apparently. just sailing pretty even, but freud just boxed and landed a lot more punches than his shane mosley overhead with less than a minute left in the 11th round and, while it was a decent fight, all that has made me is simply go up. Floyd Mayweather's level shows how extraordinary he really is when he gets hit by a right hand, but the power is not there like he was in the second round and he comes back handsome.
I think he doesn't have a backhand when you throw the right hand with a backhand coming back but he couldn't land it mainly on you. It would have been historic if Mosley had been able to follow up what he did in the second round, but it wasn't meant to be because this talented Floyd Mayweather Jr. is something very, very special. in the world of boxing he is absolutely sensational, he was interesting for two rounds and then he continued to be interesting in three and four, but what changed mayweather was shaken in the second round mayweather was down he has no choice but to let it fly, don't wait, he I just have to go after this guy and try to get a big buff.
He has it turned. He has to throw it, even though he didn't have it in position. You have the right idea. Trying to spin it again, push it to the side and throw the. right hand, but look this guy's hands are too fast, it's easy to point out what to do, but there's no way Mayweather from the outside could score and get there first, a big right hand landed by floyd, so with moses trying to put him in position to land the big shot that ends up hitting him floyd mayweather mayweather won the first minute of the round because of that, a punch that landed with everything shane tried to do to set it up, he couldn't hit it, lady, look at this, no. shots of mayweather watching an extraordinarily talented fighter and floyd mayweatherjunior has really been given a box of lessons he is undefeated and apparently negotiations on the healing will begin on monday to fight manny pacquiao manny takes the drug test we want to see the fight I know you are you watching that fight it should have happened uh at least ago One year you want to have it while it's hot it makes you feel better I'm here for a blood test who are you fighting?
I'm fighting life still the anticipation The crowd is anticipating if he can do it, he can do it and with every tick of the clock no, he can't, no, he can't, and look who hits the shots again even though Mosley seems to have gotten a second and a third victory in a couple of years. times in this fight he is more exhausted than his floyd his punches are firm but freud is still landing more shots than he is going to win in this round also with 15 seconds left within 10 seconds making a statement at the end i get a 119 to 110 in favor of floyd mayweather we will see how the judges have it an extraordinary effort from this man shane mosley now uh based on this what he is doing he is 38 years old but otherwise but based on this and the way floyd handled it in the welterweight division i mean mayweather clearly the class and of course manny pacquiao a different style fighter who is as busy as this guy and maybe it's a heavy apartment, the speculations are when he had to overcome something like he did against De la Hoya and like he did in the second round here and Floyd showed me how tough he is tonight they also touched him and hit him. hard and wobbly in the second round and he didn't go down, he wouldn't go down, his conditioning kept him up and that's why they do all those crunches and that's why they work so hard.
Did you never know that Michael Buffer is moving into place to give us the official interpretation of the judges I expected it to be anticlimactic since I expected a unanimous victory for Floyd Mayweather Jr because I thought he was extraordinary tonight great fight robert hoyle adelaide bird and dave moretti already They turned in their score sheets and I hope for a senior shutout for Floyd Mayweather the only clear round he mostly won was the second round and the one that made it really exciting because he almost dropped Floyd Mayweather's michael buffer from the MGM Grand let's get to the scorecards adelaide bird and dave moretti scored the bell at 119 109 robert hoyle 118-110 all for the winner by unanimous decision no holds barred floyd it was not a close fight it was all floyd mayweather was interesting for about four rounds and then the class started to show the The Agent Frederick couldn't stay with him.
Mayweather was absolutely extraordinary and from the fourth round on it was really a matter of appreciating Mayweather and all the great things he does in the ring. His ability to swing back and forth put his shoulder up. Mosley entered. he thought he would charge him mayweather would set the trap he overpowers him with the jab good right hand he got to mayweather there mayweather tied him up that was the dangerous moment of this fight because mayweather mosey would come back and nail him again he was having a lot of success here it was the ground for send a message, but the message was returned in the next round, but even though they nailed us with that shot, you'll see how skillful he was at grabbing that, um, okay, it's larry with uh mayweather.
Turn from a defensive wizard into an offensive force I wanted to give the fans, you know what they wanted, they wanted to see, they want to see an all-out tow battle, the fans didn't want to see me moving, the fans wanted to see me move forward, so you know, That's what we did tonight, but first I must thank God because without God this victory would not be possible. What did you see in Shane Mosley that made you think you could fight that fight? I'm just going over the game playing with my dad, you know my dad and my uncle Roger were at home, you know, watching videos of Shane mostly, you know, I don't watch tapes, uh, I didn't face any opponents, so my ultimate goal was, you know, uh box early didn't start pressing. the uh attack later in the fight, what could it do especially?
Do you think you could blow up his armor? I think we should have pressed the attack much earlier and then we could have gotten the knockout, but Shane Moses is a tough customer and um, he's a great fighter, what more can I say? It seemed if not to hurt you, then to daze you a little in the second round. Were you ok? That comes with the territory in boxing. You know, only the strong survive. I mean, um. This, of course, this is a contact sport, I mean, sometimes you will get hit with big blows, you have to hold on and keep fighting hard like a warrior, do you feel different fighting this type of fight than normal?
Well, I was you. I know I'm happy that Shane and I got the chance to fight. You know it's part of history. He is a future hall of famer. I'm a future hall of famer and you know we had to get fans from all over the world. this fight they deserve it it was a pretty one sided fight so let's move on to the next matter at hand do you think you can come to an agreement to fight the fight that everyone wants to see with manny pacquiao um i mean yes if manny pacquiao wants to fight, I mean, it's not hard to find me, I mean, we tried, we were going to make this fight happen, a couple of months ago we couldn't make the fight happen, so we kept going, it's the problem of the blood tests are a theme so strong in your mind that if he doesn't bend to your will like Shane Mosley did, does that mean there's no other way to do the fight?
I take it from Mosley, he was mostly a warrior because you know, you know, most of the time he had problems in the past, but he's a strong man, he did what I asked him, he took the blood in the analysis urine, all I want to do is be on a level playing field, so if every athlete in the sport of boxing is clean, take the test, I'm willing to take the test, it's Pacquiao's position that he will do what the commission says. The commission has indicated that they could be flexible and maybe change some of their rules but not necessarily quite what you want, does that essentially mean that they are going to disagree and the fight can't be done?
I mean, like I said before, if Manny Pacquiao takes the damn urine test, we can make the fight happen for all the fans and if he doesn't have any fight? Are you satisfied that you finally fought one of the toughest guys out there? Since you fought De La Hoya, you fought two smaller fighters with big followings who made a lot of money, but you have been heavily criticized by me, among others, for not fighting the biggest and strongest of them all, so how satisfactory is for you now after this type of situation where everyone is entitled to their own opinion, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, anything I want to do is I could keep going out and fighting the best they have if it's Shane Mosley , I will fight more if it is Pacquiao, then I will fight Pacquiao, the only thing I am saying is that Floyd Mayweather wants to fight these. fighters on a level playing field that's all I ask I just want to be treated fairly so you think everyone is taking performance enhancing drugs I never said that I said I don't want to I want to be on a level playing field that's all I ask for thank you , congratulations on an exceptional fight, so that's the story pretty clear, either Pacquiao does the blood test or there's no fight, it neutralized pretty much everything you could do.
Why do you know? I think after when I caught him with the big right hand, he might start to carry too much, I played into his hands and um, I couldn't, I tried to bounce, move so I could take it off, but it was just too tight, I started to get tight and I couldn't throw a lot of big hits so shane you've been a pro wrestler for 18 years why are you tight in a fight like this? I think like I said when I hit him with the big right hand. hand I said, okay, I'm going to knock him out, I'm going to get that knockout, uh, sooner or later and he started to be able to avoid the punches, so okay, after a few rounds, you can certainly see that you have to go to plan b, yes, was it too good?
Did he just surprise you by standing with his arm outstretched, challenging you and hitting you? No, it did surprise me. I figured he was going to try to do something like that if he could. once he tried to find my rhythm but I just couldn't uh I couldn't adjust and he adjusted and that's why I wanted to fight virtually you begged for this type of fight what are your feelings now after losing so decisively? Well, I'm happy that I took the fight and I'm happy that he gave me the fight, he gave me the opportunity, uh, he showed that he is a true champion and, you know, now you guys can have the opportunity to see him as a man well if the man takes a blood test you can see him marry pacquiao go ahead will we see you in the ring again with the boxing team?
Well, you know I had to come home and you know, watch the tape and see what happened, what was happening, um. but we'll see, you know, I'm just trying to take it easy, you know what happens and I'll take it from there when I get home. I know, thank you, you've had a great career, Shane, thank you, I appreciate it. That good guy, I love him and I hope he doesn't fight anymore Dave, he's got nothing to prove in five years, he can go to cannastone there, nice guy and he poured everything into this and just ran into Mayweather's wall, but he's good to have had the fight with you
