Mosley threatened to beat up Pacquiao

It was eight years ago when Shane "Sugar" Mosley fought Oscar "the golden boy" De La Hoya at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas Nevada for his second victory over the former world champion. Mosley won four time at the MGM Grand Arena over De La Hoya, Jose Luis Cruz, Fernando Vargas, and Luis Collazo, and in May of last year, exactly 368 days, he returned to MGM
only to beat by Floyd Mayweather.

Most of people and the boxing fans said that Mosley will not return or to continue boxing anymore. But after four months of his defeat to Floyd Mayweather, he returned with a come back fight against Sergio Mora at the Staples Center with a draw. And on Sunday May 8, Mosley will return again to MGM Grand Arena for to fight the 8th division world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao.

Mosley who will turn to 40 in September may he'll be the oldest World Boxing Organization welterweight champion if that he beats Manny Pacquiao.

When Mosley arrived in Las Vegas and came in at MGM lobby for  his press appearance, the 39 year-old said that if he beats Manny Pacquiao there would be a rematch because boxing fans won't believe it. And that was be the best victory for him in this time.

According to Shane Mosley, Manny would be more easier opponent than to Floyd Mayweather. He believes that Manny's style is nothing to him for he throws more punches at any time than Mayweather's style for he doesn't throw a lot of punches but push that punch in the right time.

Mosley has never been knock down in his 54 fights (46 wins-6 loss-1 draw with 39 knockouts) but in the previous days Freddie Roach the trainer of Manny predicted that he'll be going to knock out by the pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.

According to Manny, he did not underestimate Mosley because he has a good hand and foot speed, power and experience. "It is unfair to him", said Manny in an interview in Reuters.

After 30 minutes when Manny left, Mosley came in and said to media that "don't count me out for I will beat Pacquiao and become victorious and champion that night."
