"Sugar" Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao arrived at the MGM Grand to a big fan reaction prior to their Showtime pay-per-view bout Saturday night. Showtime has released some bonus footage of the fighter arrival for their Fight Camp 360 series. Check the video:
As pointed out by Bad Left Hook, the chanting Mosley guys seem a little bit like classic plants, put there to create a better atmosphere and more equal crowd reaction. While Shane Mosley is a genuinely likable guy, he is also nowhere near the star that Manny Pacquiao is.
Still, this was a very good turnout for the fighters just showing up and walking into the venue. We'll have much more on the event in the next few days as we head toward the weigh-ins Friday, the fight Saturday and the fallout on Sunday. The pay-per-view starts at 9:00 p.m. ET on Saturday and we will have live results and round-by-round coverage of the event.
