Mosley Gives Up the Idea of Fighting Pacquiao

The WBA (World Boxing Association) welterweight super champion Shane Mosley has given up the idea of fighting against the pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is currently arranging his fight against Paul Williams, Joshua Clottey, Kermit Cintron, or Andre Berto, the World Boxing Council welterweight champion.

This is an excerpt of what he have said from the Yahoo news:
“Shane's legacy is intact, and it's not dependent on a Pacquiao yes or no,” said Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer as quoted by a Los Angeles Times sports blog. The LA Times article by Lance Pugmire noted that Schaefer revealed this latest development to The Times. Mosley, who even offered a 40-60 split to face Pacquiao, reportedly told Schaefer to stop negotiating for such bout. “Shane says he'll be the last man standing, anyway,” related Schaefer.
Maybe next time, Shane will have a chance to prove his might later. For the meantime, Pacquiao vs Cotto is tentatively schedule this coming November 14 and everybody should watch out for this clash of great fighters soon.
