Ah, yea, because he should have. Mosley came off a huge win in early 2009 and begged to fight Pac, but was turned down so he could face Clottey, the only boxer of this decade who doesn't punch.
Mosley is shot- a one-sided demolition by Floyd and a draw with Sergio fucking Mora. (WHO??)
He's in the Top 100 greatest. Probably in the 40s or 50s I'd say. He's still very far from the top.
This is where the booze clearly started to hit you.
He's no where near Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns, Leonard, or Roberto Druan. He's just not. The fact that you're saying Pac has carved out a bigger legacy is remarkably ridiculous.
He beat Morales after losing to him, he lost both times CONVINCINGLY to Marquez (I don't give a fuck what the judges said), he beat a strong Hatton, a worthless dried out DLH, a strong but ruined Cotto, and a Margarito who everyone except those who talk to trees knew was too fucking slow and mismatch from the start.
This is not bigger, or better, than the legendary wars that the Four Kings, or Chavez or Arguello or Pryor or any of the above, were in. In fact, it's markedly less.
This Mosley fight is a sham, just like the Margo fight was. If this is the course he wants to take, fine, but real boxing fans should shun this travesty of a "fight."
