In Rusty’s Corner

I’ll take the two our of three winners last weekend and look ahead to one big fight on May 1, in Las Vegas 포켓몬 실버 다운로드.

For those of you who may be unable to read, be punch-drunk, or just inebriated, I refer to the upcoming fight between undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr 엠바카데로 델파이 xe 다운로드. and tough Shane Mosley. The fight takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Most of the folks who saw Shane in his prime considered him the fastest puncher around, now at 38, he has found some power and looks even stronger than before 인스톨팩토리 다운로드. This could have been a classic about five years ago, and, it still can be.

Mayweather, 33, 40-0 (25) relies on two things speed and fighting older and slower fighters 다운로드. Both figures exist against Mosley, 38, 46-5, (39).

Shane seems to have found himself again and he is not going to be an easy mark for Mayweather, who holds the speed advantage 다운로드. Shane holds the edge in height and reach and he has the power to hurt Mayweather if he lands early.

This fight means a lot more to Mayweather with the hopes of a major money fight with Pac Man still looming, and I hear that Floyd loves the green so much; some people think he’s Irish.

Anyhow, I see Mosley coming out strong and hard and Mayweather playing a lot of hit and run early. After winning the early stanzas, I see Mayweather using his hands and feet a lot more, and take a unanimous decision.

It should be a great fight, at least early on.
