The wait for the Pacquiao vs. Mosley bout has been long awaited and the results were not as good as the previous fights of Manny Pacquiao. Why? It's true what Pacquiao said, "Mosley did not want to fight". After the knockdown of Mosley on the 3rd round, he was too cautious that he hardly engaged Manny Pacquiao in real good boxing. He admitted that the punches were the hardest he received in his entire boxing career!
Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley are good friends that made the fight uneventful. It was the only bout you could notice that Pacquiao would make the sign of the cross before the start of each round. Maybe he did not want to hurt Mosley and their frequent 'touch-gloves' seemed to be the sign! The fall of Manny on the 10th round was not a knockdown because Mosley stepped on his foot causing him to fall!
It was only after that, that Manny got real aggressive and showed again his trademark of 'slapping his gloves'. Had the referee not made the mistake of calling it a knockdown, it might have been a lesser fight than it was. Obviously, Shane Mosley was just fighting for survival from a knockout or TKO. He had to preserve his record of not having lost in a fight due to a KO or TKO! This would make one wonder if he really deserves to be a Hall of Famer for that record.
