In the first round of the Showtime pay-per-view bout between Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KO) and "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KO) circled, feeling each other out for the first thirty seconds, flicking jabs and trying to find the appropriate range. Mosley landed a jab but Manny responded with a nice one-two combination. Manny seemed willing to go to the body early while Shane was looking for hooks and the jab but Shane landed a hard right to the body. Pacquiao quickly landed one of his own in return. A sharp right hand by Mosley landed with thirty seconds left in the round.
The round came to a close with neither man really laying claim to the card making it 10-10 on the SB Nation scorecard.
