Shane Mosley's Camp Ready To Challenge Manny Pacquiao's Hand Wraps

It looks like we're getting our first taste of controversy for Saturday's Showtime Boxing pay-per-view event between "Sugar" Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao. Freddie Roach, Pacquiao's trainer, has heard that the Mosley camp will complain about Pacquiao's hand wraps. From ABS-CBN News:

The boxing coach reportedly heard rumors that Mosley's trainer, Naazim Richardson, intend to complain about Pacquiao's hand wraps.

"All I hear about is that they're going to complain about the hand wraps," said Roach.

"That's what Naazim's an expert at and try to get at Manny's head. I won't let that happen. I won't allow that argument," he added.

Of course, Mosley's camp nailed Antonio Margarito for loading his hand wraps in their now famous clash. Is it possible that the camp has seen something in how Roach wraps Manny's hands or is it just simple headgames? SB Nation's Bad Left Hook expands:

Freddie and Naazim are both master trainers in and out of the ring. They're great spokesmen for their fighters, get the best of their fighters, and understand the mental game. Maybe Freddie really heard the rumors. Maybe he didn't. Maybe he just expects it. Maybe he doesn't. I put nothing past either of them. They're smart, smart guys.
