Manny Pacman Pacquiao will fight Sugar Shane Mosley in his next fight. The fight will be at the MGM on May 7 in Las Vegas. Manny Pacquiao wants to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr., but Mayweather is in no rush to fight Pacquiao. The second negotiations between the two fighters are off. This fight with Mosley is a choice for Pacquiao because he cannot have the fight with Mayweather Jr. that he really wants.
Sugar Shane Mosley is an excellent boxer who is past his prime. Mosley will be closing on 40 yrs. Old by the time he meets Pacquiao in May.

Manny Pacquiao comes into this fight as the best pound for pound fighter in the world. He has taking on all comers and has come out victorious. Manny has won his past thirteen fights by dominating the competition. He fought the best fighters in the world and he beat them all. The only fighter left that can challenge Manny Pacquiao is Floyd Mayweather Jr. Some people will say Mayweather is ducking Manny because he is scared. Others will tell you this is the fight business. Sometimes egos are so large in the fight business you can’t get past it. I believe it is a little of both. Mayweather Jr. is an undefeated fighter who has gone through the competition like a knife through butter. Pacquiao might be too much to handle for Mayweather Jr. and he may be searching for a weakness. Regardless, this fight won’t happen at least until Pacquiao steps into the ring against Sugar Shane Mosley.
