Mosley wants to fight Pacquiao

Shane Mosley offers a perfect scenario, Mosley calls for fight that whoever wins will get to face the winner of the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Juan Manuel Marquez showdown. The powerhouse showdown has been recently postponed and tentatively rescheduled to September. This means more time to over think it over.

"Yeah, that is the perfect scenario. That’s the way it is supposed to happen in real boxing," said Mosley, the 38-year-old WBA welterweight champion from California, told as he continued to beg for a fight with Pacquiao.

Mosley has practically swallowed everything in seeking the fight with Pacquiao, announcing that he’s agreeable to a catchweight under 147 lb (the welterweight limit), put his belt on the line, and settle for 40 percent of the earnings.

While, Miguel Cotto, WBO welterweight champion, is Top Rank president Bob Arum's choice to be Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent on Nov. 14, is quite hesitant, saying he can only fight Pacquiao at 145 lb. Pacquiao should get no less than 65 percent of everything if ever he agrees tp fight Cotto, who just came off with a victory over Josh Clottey.

Mosley is saying that he’s better than Cotto, and even Pacquiao. Which may be true enough, as experts think Mosley can give the reigning pound-for-pound champion a tougher fight than Cotto on the ring.

Pacquiao has been wanting to fight with Mayweather, and if the fight with Cotto pushes through, and he wins, then the undefeated Champion and former-pound-for-pound king will definitely be next in line.
