Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) will be on the ring again this coming May 7, 2011 to defend his honor, boxing title and his domination as pound for pound king of the world against the American boxer, “Sugar” Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs).
Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum made the arrangements to make this fight to happen. Arum believes that Pacquiao vs. Mosley is much better compared to other options that line up prior to the decision day of the fight such as options like Pacquiao-Marquez trilogy and Pacquiao-Chavez match up.
Honestly, I was expecting that Pacquiao will be fighting against the undefeated welterweight boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. but the latter faces different legal issues that really hampered him to think about anything about boxing and make the dream match materialized. Maybe later this year or next it will happen but Mayweather really need to fix his problems first so that he could focus on fighting the people’s champ.
Now, with the announcement of Mosley-Pacquiao match, mixed opinions spread and a lot of them thinks that Mosley is too old for Manny to keep up with his speed and power. However, he said that he won’t go easy with the champ and even his opponent is saying that this fight will be quite difficult compared to other matches he successfully won.
CBS/Showtime will be the one to handle in televising the fight instead of HBO. They will also produce a 24/7 – like sports documentary for the match to promote it several weeks before the fight night. The boxing event will be happening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The 24/7-like series will be the called as “FIGHT CAMP 360°: Pacquiao vs. Mosley” which premiere date will be on April 2, 2011. You might want to check the complete schedule at WATCHPACQUIAO.COM.
