In just over a month, Sugar Shane Mosley will be going toe-to-toe with one of the best boxers of this generation, Manny Pacquiao.

Although Mosley is the clear underdog in this bout, he shouldn't be counted out that easily.

He may be pushing 40, but he does have the power to knockdown his opponents, even Manny Pacquiao.

Mosley almost shocked the world with a Floyd Mayweather second round near-knockdown last May.

He even did something Pacquiao couldn't do last fall—knock down Antonio Margarito.

In this video from Showtime's Fight Camp 360, Mosley and New York Knicks' big man Amar'e Stoudemire give each other tips on their respective sports.

Mosley offers Amar'e some advice on how to put power behind his punches. While Amar'e gives the inside tip on how to spin a basketball.

Now, isn't Mosley's advice more useful?

Especially with Amar'e always in the low-post against NBA heavyweights. I'm not advocating violence here, just saying that some boxing tips can't hurt Amar'e's game.

How exactly is spinning a basketball going to help Mosley beat Manny Pacquiao?

Maybe Amar'e is quietly rooting for another Pacman victory in May.

Whatever the reason, Amar'e needs to seriously focus on learning to bang against the big guys in the Eastern Conference.

The playoffs are about to begin.

He can focus on dating Ciara later.
