Friday Random Stuff

Today's edition of Friday Random Stuff is about the big Floyd Mayweather v. Shane Mosley fight this weekend. Mayweather is considered to be the best, or second best fighter in the world with Manny Pacquiao. Shane Mosley is one of the best welterweights in the world. Both have beaten Oscar De La Hoya, Mosley twice. Mayweather is undefeated. Mosley has lost 5 times, to 3 fighters, the late Vernon Forest twice, Winky Wright twice and Miguel Cotto. Mosley's last fight however, was a destruction of then welterweight champion Antonio Margarito. Mayweather retired for a year and a half, before returning in September and destroying the great, if not undersized for welterweight, Juan Manuel Marquez. I'm a huge boxing fan, and I can not wait for this fight. Big fights like this happen once in a decade. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer has predicted this fight will not only break the PPV buy record, but smash it. He's predicted 4 million buys. The record is the De La Hoya-Mayweather fight at 2.15 mill. It's going to be an epic encounter. If you are a casual fan, or just interested, I suggest you check out the great Queensbury Rules blog. Tim Starks and company do a great job. I comment over there, so feel free to jump in. You can watch the fight at selected movie theaters. Check out this site, which has a full listing.

My prediction is Mayweather by decision. I don't think Mosley is going to be able to touch him. Shane struggled against good defensive fighters, and Mayweather is the best around on defense. Marquez barely touched him. In fact, it was a compubox low. Mayweather and Mosley have both said they want the KO, but Floyd isn't known for his KOs. He stopped Ricky Hatton, and that's his last big one. I hope you check it out. Here's a great hype video by HBO.

Enjoy your weekend everybody.
