Fight Hub TV caught up with Showtime announcer Al Bernstein to discuss Saturday's bout between Manny Pacquiao and "Sugar" Shane Mosley. Bernstein does a nice job of selling the fight, which is his job, but also makes cogent points about why this fight will be competitive. Check out the video:
One of the key quotes from the video is Al sharing Shane's views on why he deserves to fight Manny after a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. couldn't be made:
"Mosley said 'If I fought Berto I'd be the favorite.' Which, now we know he would after what happened. Even though I think Berto is a fine young fighter. 'If I fought Juan Manuel Marquez tomorrow, I'd be the favorite in that fight.' Which he would. 'So why not me?' So, there you go."
Bernstein will call the action Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view along with Gus Johnson and Antonio Tarver.
