I think everyone is buying into the advetisement a bit.
No, no, no, no...Boxrec is completely wrong. Go look at their rankings in welterweight and P4P and you wont even see Mosley listed. I'm not sure why, but they probably took him off because it's been over a year since he fought. Thats why rankings from Yahoo, The Ring, Boxrec, Boxing scene, they are ALL subjective. For the most part, they tend to get it right or CLOSE to right, but it's ALWAYS subjective.
If you actually watch and follow boxing, you would know that Shane Mosley has been considered an elite P4P fighter since around 1999. He had a rough stretch between 2002 and 2004 , but he bounced back and his only loss since 2005 was Miguel Cotto, no shame in that. He completely destroyed Margarito in his last fight, and nobody has ever stopped this guy. Shane Mosley is guaranteed Hall of Famer.
I know you wanna see Floyd fight Manny, as we all do, but this fight is HARDLY a fight that should be looked down on. This is not about buying into any advertising, this fight has had Boxing fans drooling for 10 years.
