Now it's time to wish a Happy New Year!
BTW, Pac opened as a 9-1 favorite: http://fighthype.com/pages/content9076.html
By the time 24/7 runs their fight hype, it should get much closer like 4-1. They do a great job of fooling people who aren't big boxing fans into thinking the fights are worthwhile. As Javier says:
Yeah, that's how it goes though. Sometimes I think many Boxing fans, myself included, get too upset over matchmaking when it's not always the fight we all wanna see. Obviously in this case it's Mayweather vs Pacquiao, and we all know why, or have our own versions of "why" that isn't happening right now.
Still, even though it seems like this is a pointless fight that Pacquiao will dominate, Mosley knows his back is against the ropes and this is his likely to be his last big payday. We also have seen crazier things happen over the years, so it's not outside the realm of possibility to think Shane comes out hard and makes a fight out of it. If Shane found a way to hurt Manny or even catch him and knock him out, it wouldn't be the biggest upset ever (which is still Douglas over Tyson). Can Shane outbox Manny? Maybe 10 years ago, but I have some serious doubts about that happening today. Really, it seems like his only shot in this is that one big punch, but it only takes one, and that's part of what makes this sport exciting.
