First of all it’s a damn shame that Andre Berto and Shane Mosley bout for January 30th is off. I was really looking forward to this one. Not only do each have a welterweight title, but both have similar styles.
I don’t know what it is with boxing and postponing fights. The slightest mishap throws everything out of whack. I realize that Berto has had some family issues in Haiti but if you pick a date you’re responsible to be there. Shane Mosley is a guy who will fight anyone. All boxing fans know this. He fought Vernon Forrest, Winky Wright twice, De La Hoya twice, Antonio Margarito, Miguel Cotto, etc. Hell, he will probably take on Paul Williams for that matter.
We all know the unfortunate outcome of the Pacquiao-Mayweather bout. No Deal. So it is on Floyd to man up and take on Mosley. People have been criticizing him of ducking Shane and taking on smaller dudes. I hear Floyd was interested in Nate Campbell to replace Manny for March 13th? Come on. Campbell is a great veteran boxer, but is way undersized! Taking on Marquez was okay. Yet, Nate Campbell is a stretch. Right now, I could care less of any fights coming up. Boxing should be ashamed of themselves.
