Canelo Alvarez-Shane Mosley..Who Do Ya Like?

AlvarezCintron Espinosa11Canelo Alvarez, the 21 year-old Mexican, will take on the toughest test of his career, in Shane Mosley, on the undercard of the May 5 Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto fight in Las Vegas. Or..maybe you don't think so. You saw how Mosley looked in his last outing, a UD12 loss to Manny Pacquiao last May. He showed some defensive chops, in steering clear of punishment, but drew scorn for what many termed a mail-it-in performance. He is 40, turns 41 in September, and past his prime. Could he prove the world wrong, and give the 39-0 Canelo, the WBC junior middleweight champion, a tutorial? Or is the 46-7-1 Mosley just a name now, just a scalp to add to the resume? What do you think, TSS Universe?

whats wrong with shane mosley? did jin take all of his $? one of two things is going to happen. shane is going to run out of gas and take punishment on the way UD loss from a guy that wouldn't be expected to make it out of the first half of the fight with him 10 years ago, OR and probably more likely get outboxed by a younger and fresher fighter who, if his team has any sense, will follow the gameplan cotto used in his fight with him. either way, shane should stop or at least change his name to "nutrasweet"

Yes, Jin took all of Shane's cash. She was his wife and manager. Money gone. Shane will take his lumps for the paycheck. It is the way it has always been. The young lions kill the old lions. No different than when Oscar beat down Chavez. At least its just an undercard fight.

First of all I'd like to say **** Jin!!!!seriously I mean that ****...Now about the fight I think Alvarez is the truth and will the first guy to stop Shane Mosley....after this fight I want him to fight Cotto or Chavez jr I think a win over one of those two guys would make him a mega super star.

C'mon the Roast! Don't be hatin' on my Asian girl, Jin! All is fair in love and war. Besides Sugar Shane Mosley's dad, Sugar Pops Jack warned his Sugarman son ahead of time. Hard-headed arse Shane was all horny and jive and wouldn't listen and told his dad to fudge off. Then the Sugarman fired PSJ's arse. And "Dats da way luv goes." Hehehehehe!

This was no Jack-and-Jill jive about going up da hill to get a pail of water. It was all about Pops Sugar Jack trying to save son Sugar Shane's arse. Dude was even hollering: "Come back, SHANE! Come back, SHANE! But the Sugarman was horny than a ___ ____! And saying, "I luv Jin, Sugar Pops! Sorry!

NOW DON'T feel sorry for Sugar Shane now. That is what his arse get. Now da sucka has a great and power genie up in his corner trying to work that magic. I don't know! Maybe with the red-headed hype, Genie Naazim can halt a tragic. Or maybe Genie Naazim just won't show. NYET! He will be there. And it is gonna be a _____ ____ _____ _____! Holla!

the Roast says:

All true Radam, all true.

the Roast says:

I think Shane can win this fight if he goes for broke early. He might as well blow his load early and go right after the kid. We really don't know if Canelo has a good chin or not. Cotto's bro rocked him in the first round of that fight but I can't recall him being tagged on the chin. Canelo's best win was over a faded/never that good Cintron so Mosley is a good test for him. This fight does make the card better. I don't know if I will buy either of the PPVs but I won't buy both. Pac-Ram Bradley is a better fight than Floyd-Cotto to me but two interesting fights are better than one.
