Mayweather vs Mosley
Mississippi Fight Sports Examiner | Brad Cooney
Floyd Mayweather Jr has had an earl full of hateful and down right mean comments made about him for quite awhile now. Most of his detractors criticize him for cherry picking smaller opponents. It is true that Floyd has indeed fought a lot of smaller guys, but that does not take away from his skills in the ring.
Yes, he is the one who demanded that Manny Pacquiao undergo mandatory random blood testing. A demand that flushed the big mega fight between the two down the drain. It just poured more fuel on the fire making his critics hate him even more. Again though, at the end of the day Floyd is undefeated. If anyone thinks that Floyd Mayweather Jr is losing sleep because the majority of Pacquiao fans dislike him, they are sorely mistaken.
With that said, he does have an opportunity to silence his critics. Well, does anyone think that his critics will ever be silent? Probably not, but if he beats Shane Mosley his critics will have no choice but to respect his fight game more.
Mississippians that this writer has spoken with favor a Mayweather victory over Mosley. I spoke with James Clearwater of Byram, Mississippi who is a bigtime Mayweather fan. I ran into James at the Last Call Bar & Grill, a local Jackson, MS sports bar. Clearwater is tired of reading about Floyd's critics, ' Everyone likes to talk smack about Floyd. The only reason Pacquiao is the pound for pound king is because Floyd retired. They can talk all they want, but when the day does come when Floyd and Manny fight, there is going to be a lot of Filipino's the next day that will be running with their tails tucked between their legs."
Mayweather vs. Mosley is an interesting match up. Mosley is no joke and he will force the action. Mayweather has his work cut out for him, but he's never been afraid to work hard. He comes into his fights in great shape, and from all reports he is having a strong training camp.

Floyd is a guy that likes to talk. He is not shy about waving his money around, and he is not a guy that lets his critics bother him. He will show up ready to fight against Shane Mosley and with a victory he will force those who doubt him to rethink some things.
