Originally from Seattle, but living in the ACC-hoops crazy South, I still root for the M's, Seahawks, Cougs, and Super Sonics (past tense), when not trying to score a ticket to Duke-Carolina, Wake-Maryland, or flying across country for an NCAA tournament. Spent some time in the ring, I have a fondness for the sweet science and a good MMA fight.

My writing influences: Steve Kelly (Seattle Times), Bill Simmons (from my time in Providence, RI), FX Toole, Davis Miller, George Plimpton, George Vecsey, and Peter Bacho.

Likes: the rare supremely gifted athlete that actually plays hard.
Dislikes: the punk athlete.

    J Soriano,
    Send in your official prediction statement in one or two sentences on who will win Mayweather vs Mosley ASAP.

    Despite Pacquiao accomplishing a great deal as a fighter, Jackson thinks he still hasn’t he’s a top fighter, saying “Until he beats a [Floyd] Mayweather or a [Shane] Mosley, then I don’t know if he is the top fighter.” Pacquiao has the chance to fight Mosley before the Cotto fight, but Pacquiao and his team selected Cotto to fight instead of Mosley for some reason.

    It seemed like a strange choice in hindsight, because Cotto has been pulverized by Antonio Margarito a year before the Pacquiao fight, and hadn’t looked good in a subsequent fight against Clottey in 2009. Some people felt that Cotto was a shot fighter at the time he was picked by Pacquiao’s management to fight the Filipino star.

    Mosley, for his part, has beaten Cotto’s conqueror Antonio Margarito by a 9th round stoppage in early 2009. Based on that win, it would seem that Mosley should have been selected by Pacquiao’s team to fight him, but for some reason Mosley wasn’t picked.

    Pacquiao has the chance to fight Mayweather as well, but that fight didn’t happen because Pacquiao didn’t want to have blood taken from him for blood testing for drugs any closer than 24 days before his fight with Mayweather
