Floyd Mayweather Jr. entered the ring, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, in his usual creative fashion, to the O'Jays performing "For the Love of Money."
It seemed like Money Mayweather was a bit too cocky entering the fight, being seriously shook in the first two rounds. Mayweather said that Shane fought like a warrior, and stunned him in the second round. But, Floyd was able to shake it off and regain his composure.
Sugar Shane Mosley was extremely aggressive in the first two rounds, even giving a devastating right hand to the side of Floyd's head causing his knees to buckle, until Floyd began to implement some real pressure. Once Mayweather hit Mosley with a few clean hits, Sugar Shane was never the same.
Mayweather was feeling out Mosley for the first couple of rounds, and once he figured him out, it was all Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the rest of the way. With Two ringside judges scoring the fight 119-109 in favor of Mayweather, and a third at 118-110 Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather Jr. clearly dominated this fight.
Despite a scare in the second round, when it looked like Mayweather almost got knocked off his feet, Floyd managed to remain in control of the fight, showing who the better fighter truly is. "I did what the fans came here to see, A toe-to-toe battle," Mayweather said. "That's not my style but I wanted to give them that kind of fight. I knew I could do it."
Once the fight was over, spectators began yelling, "Pacquiao," and during a postfight interview in the ring, Mayweather was asked about that possibility. Mayweather said, "If he wants to fight it's not that hard to find me."
Everyone knows that the boxers appeared to have had an agreement several months ago, but fell apart because of Mayweather's insistence that Pacquiao agree to a blooding-testing regime that Manny opposed. This issue appears to still remain an obstacle in the way of one of the most exciting fights in the history of boxing. "If Manny Pacquiao can take a blood and urine test then we have a fight," Mayweather said. "If not, no fight."
The Mayweather-Mosley fight was exciting for about the first five rounds, until it was clear that Floyd Mayweather Jr. had mastered his game plan, showing no sign of losing his dominance. Now we must all hope that Mayweather and Pacquiao come to some kind of agreement, so that we can witness boxing history.
