Shane Mosley will be fighting on the undercard of Saturday night's HBO boxing event that sees Floyd Mayweather, Jr. face Miguel Cotto. The good people at Fight Hub TV caught up with Shane and asked him what he thought would happen in the Mayweather vs. Cotto bout. Shane has been in the ring with both men (losing to both) so he has a bit of experience to draw on.
Here's the video:
I think that the main event is gonna be a great fight because Cotto...Cotto is a phenomenal fighter. He's very deceptive, where you think that his jab isn't coming but it really is. And it's fast. He lands a lot of shots on guys that you would think that he wouldn't. Because he is deceptively fast. Mayweather has a tremendous defense where he's moving, ducking and he's very sharp. It's gonna be a good fight. I would go with Mayweather. But the first four or five rounds we're gonna see what happens. I mean, if Mayweather misses a step in his training camp or if he misses a step like, right before the fight. There could be serious problems for Mayweather. Serious problems! Because Cotto is right there with him. Neck-and-neck. And it's not an easy fight for Mayweather. If Mayweather is sharp, you know? I give it to Mayweather. But if he misses a step, Cotto's gonna be right there. And he's a natural 154 pounder where Mayweather is not.
