Boxing betting fans everywhere absolutely cannot wait for the Saturday night fight between “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao, as these two are amongst the best fighters in the world. We have our Mosley vs. Pacquiao picks all set to go for the big time brawl at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night!

Pacquiao is largely considered the best pound for pound boxer in the entire world right now, and at 53-3-2 with 38 KOs, it’s really hard to argue with that point. The last time that Pac-Man was beaten was in 2005 by Erik Morales right here at the MGM Grand. Since that point, he has captured and retained the WBC Super Featherweight International Title, the Super Featherweight World Title, the WBC Lightweight World Title, the IBO and “The Ring” Light Welterweight World Titles, the WBO Welterweight World Title, the WBC Diamond Belt, and the WBC Super Welterweight World Title. The WBO Welterweight World Title is what is on the line in this event.

Needless to say though, no one is expecting Pacquiao to really struggle with this fight. He has had to go the full 12 rounds against each of his last three opponents since knocking out Ricky Hatton in the second round in May 2009, almost two years ago to the date of this fight with Mosley. However, he beat Miguel Angel Cotto on TKO and took care of both Joshua Clottey and Antonio Margarito without much in the way of a hassle with a unanimous decision.

This very well could be the last fight of Shane Mosley’s career. Since taking care of Margarito in January 2009, Mosley hasn’t won a match. In fairness, he has fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Sergio Mora in that stretch, fights which certainly haven’t been all that easy. Mayweather Jr. beat Mosley by unanimous decision right here at the MGM Grand last year, which wasn’t a huge surprise, but the split decision draw against Mora was more of a shock.

Mosley, at 39 years old, clearly isn’t the same boxer that he once was. In fact, since starting his career at 38-0 through 2001, he has been beaten six times and had a draw and a no contest. Now, with arguably the best boxer on the face of the earth waiting in the opposite ring corner, we really don’t see how this fight is going to end up being all that close. Mosley has never been knocked out in his career, and he has never had a fight not go the distance that didn’t end in his victory, but this might be the exception to the rule, as this is probably the hardest fight of his career.
