Floyd Mayweather Cruises To Unanimous Decision Over Shane Mosley

New, 10 comments

It started out with a bang as Mosley came out firing putting Floyd Mayweather in unfamilar territory.  However, after surviving Mosley's initial flurry in the first couple of rounds, it was all Floyd Mayweather as he cruised to a unanimous decision victory.  The judges saw the fight as 119-109, 119-109, 118-110.  This performance by Mayweather has to without a doubt set up the megafight with Manny Pacquiao next.  There's absolutely nothing left for him to do beside make that fight happen.  The interesting thing will be how many PPV buys the Mayweather/Mosley fight did.  I'm sure it'll surpass the 700,000+ PPV buys done by Pacquiao's last fight.  In fact, I'd say the Mayweather/Mosley fight did well over a million PPV's buys.  I talked to a lot of people that normally don't order boxing PPV's, yet they were interested in this fight.  If this PPV dwarfs the numbers that Pacquiao put up in his last fight, that'll give Mayweatehr more leverage to get things done on his terms.  I'll say this, the Mayweather/Pac-Man fight HAS to happen.  Give me your thoughts on the Mayweather/Mosley fight.  Was this Mosley last big fight?
