Mayweather vs Mosley
Boxing Examiner | Michael Marley
When's the last time a fight between two top American boxers turn into a seventh grade hissyfest?
It seems to be all one-sided, I must say, as "Gossip Girl" Floyd Mayweather keeps taking one infantile cheap shot after another at Sugar Shane Mosley.
First, the undefeated Mayweather made some nasty cracks about Mosley's divorce of last year from wife, Jin.
Mayweather could've lost his "Man Card" and access to the "Man Cave" right then and there.
But, recently, Mayweather has stepped up his strictly from the sandbox digs at Gentleman Shane.
Nah, nah, nah, nah...Floyd says Mosley "went out character" and is thus showing fear by getting his skin inked up at age 38.
What's more, "Gossip Girl" says cattily now that he knows that Mosley got plastic surgery revamp his bashed in boxer's nose.
Is this the best material Mayweather and his camp can come up with?
I don't recall Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns or Marvelous Marvin Hagler ever stooping so low with such trivial remarks.
I do remember Hearns hurling a rubber chicken at Leonard's head at one press conference but that was just luring him into a fight stuff, no more and no less.
"Hitman" Hearns did not compare any Leonard family members to plastic poultry or anything like that.
Sure, an exasperated Larry Holmes once said the long dead Rocky Marciano "couldn't carry" his jockstrap but Holmes felt provoked and at least that thoughtless comment was an athletic comparison. Holmes spoke out of a wounded ego and right after the heat of ring battle.
