You didn’t ask for it, but you’re gonna get it.
The Manilla Bulletin reports that Pacquiao-Mosley is a done deal, save for a few contractual touchups. The date is May 7, the site is the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.
Freddie Roach says Mosley won’t be easy, and Larry Merchant told us a few days ago that Temm Pacquiao considered Mosley the stiffest test of the final three in consideration, the other two being Juan Manuel Marquez and Andre Berto. Mosley has looked close to shot recently, and is 2-2-1 in his last five. We tend to trust Roach explicitly, so we’ll try our best to totally respect his stance.
At age 39, with excessive mileage on the tires–the guy has been fighting for 31 years!–can Mosley give Manny a run for his money? Or is this just a run for some money, the last big adios payday?
