Mosley looked good on the preview of Pac/Mosley 360....Flashing his mercurial smile... getting in and out of expensive exotic cars,.. sporting the most elegant and distingushed attire money can buy... and he was smartly accessorized with a watch that gleamed so brightly it could blind you if it caught the right angle of the sun.... all this while gliding on shoes that would make an alligator turn lime-green with envy... but why does he still have a gut after signing a contract more than five months before the fight??... if that wasn't alarming enough Shane finds time to make quotes on the internet on a daily basis.. even Nazim doesn't look his interviewers square in the eye anymore like he did before Shanes' fights with Margarito and Floyd..... all they talk about is hitting the Mega Lottery... they preach landing the Mother-of-all Haymakers before Manny even breaks a sweat..... is Something is amiss??... Doesn't he know he'll be fighting the best conditioned 144lb man on the planet??? a guy whose PopEye-like fore arms and knuckles are bigger this his... hands that have the capacity to land with lightning speed .... impacting like solid lead pipes flung out of a catapult... Time is running out... it's the midnight hour and I still havent found any reason to give Shane a fighting chance... his chances have seeped away like the slowly flowing sands of Time......... years ago.... I hope he at least makes it entertaining. 50$ U.S..... is not that easy to come by these days.

the Roast says:

I'm with you B-Sug. I'd like to say Shane has a chance but I just don't see it. It's just a matter of can he go the distance.

Big Daddy says:

I think the BobFather is putting his best foot forward with the undercard in hopes of impressing CBS.. maybe he finally learned his lesson after milking the Versus Network dry. He killed Boxing on that network and MMA was more than happy to pick up the slack.

brownsugar says:

So right BigDaddy,.. I'm looking forward to seeing what Pavlik has to offer... as well as the other "A" list contenders.

Big Daddy says:

Que Onda B-Suge? Kinda sux that we only get solid undercards when the Headliner is weak or in this case making a splash w/ the TV BigWigs. Oh how I yearn for yesterday's Revenge of the Rematches. Anyways, getting ready to watch Segura-Calderon.. then head out for some Fun w/ the Bop Gun in the City by the Bay!

sounds like a winner
