Floyd Mayweather is that good
Well friends, I don't like the guy, but there's no denying Floyd Mayweather's considerable talents. I don't say this lightly, but Mayweather is one of the all-time great boxers in ring history. Last night he dominated Shane Mosley for his 41st consecutive win. Mosley is several years past his prime, but he's still a good fighter. Mayweather made him look like a palooka. Mosley had a brief window in round two where he almost made the fight interesting, but Mayweather tied him up and the round soon came to an end. Take away that snippet of action and Mayweather pitched a shutout. By the midway point of the fight Mosely looked lost. Mayweather probably could've knocked him out, but as we all know, Mayweather closes the show on his terms. Of course, there's only one fight left: Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao. This fight should've taken place by now. In fact, this column should be about the rematch. As a sport, boxing is not doing well. There is no buzz about boxing. This MMA crap isn't helping matters. Yes, I know, the fan base for each sport is different. But boxing is bordering on becoming irrelevant. That's why Mayweather-Pacquiao must be made. And soon. Only Pacquiao can make Mayweather look mortal.
