39-year-old Mosley can make countless millions if he beats Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao Shane MosleyBy Eric Thomas: The only thing that separates the 39-year-old Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KO’s) from countless riches is a win over Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KO’s) on May 7th.

If Mosley can somehow reach back and find some of his long lost youth, he may be able to pull off a huge upset and in doing so set himself up for at least one huge money rematch where Mosley’s percentage split of the cash revenue would be much bigger than it is this time around.

But Mosley has got to find a way to beat Pacquiao and that’s going to be easier said than done. Mosley’s best chance of winning may be for him to score a knockout because when you take on a popular fighter like Pacquiao, it’s difficult to win a decision. Just ask Juan Manuel Marquez, who appeared to beat Pacquiao by a 12 round decision in 2008, but had to settle for a 12 round split decision.

Mosley may have to either knock Pacquiao out or drop him two or maybe three times in order to ensure that he gets the win. It’s really hard to see Mosley winning by a decision unless he really dominates the fight beyond question. If it’s anywhere close, you can pretty much forget about Mosley getting a win.

In an at the Manila Bulletin, Pacquiao seems to acknowledge what Mosley can gain if he beats him, saying “Mosley knows what’s in it for him if he beats me.”
Yes, Mosley will get one more fight with Pacquiao, and the huge money that goes with it. Mosley can then retire in grand style if that’s why he’s interested in.
