The hype started today with a brawl in Time Square. Of course it appears to be a big deal, and it may appear even to be bigger than Pacquiao - Clottey fight that will happen on March 13th. It is a fact however, that Floyd-Mosley fight will not happen without Pacquiao giving the boxing world yet again an exciting fight, now with Clottey. Pacquiao chose a low reward/high risk opponent that can't be undone by Floyd Mayweather Jr.  when he was considering to fight Hatton's brother or Manalaggi.

The only reason to watch the hype is if Mosley can dominate and win the fight.  However, Floyd-Mosley is just a johnny come lately match up only next to Hopkins-Jones Jr. in 2010. Mosley is 38 with a 15 month lay-off. Of course it's expected to out sell Pacquiao just because people are willing to buy hypes like the unremarkable Mayweather-Marquez match up.
