Mayweather – Mosley Fight

When it comes to the May 1 Mayweather - Mosley fight, a bet on big underdog Shane Mosley would pay out nearly $300 for every $100 bet or $30 for every $10 at Sports Interaction (see website here).  Mayweather was now at -455.

"With everybody riding the Floyd Mayweather Jr. bandwagon heading into this fight, Mosley's value continues to increase," says Don Shapiro of

At one time the two fighters were nearly dead even, but that was short lived once the betting action came rolling in.

One thing going for Mosley, POWER. 

Julius Stecker of East Side Boxing:

Now I am not hear saying Shane Mosley will knock out Floyd. That is the hardest task in boxing. But Shane Mosley will present something that Floyd has never seen in terms of power. And while Mosley doesn't have great devastating one punch power, he does punch hard with both hands, to the body and to the head. And his power is relentless for all 12 rounds. He is probably the 1st opponent with an opportunity to hurt Floyd. I am not saying he will, but I am just saying he has the ability to do it. Floyd's shoulder roll defense usually nullifies his opponents attack, but Mosley ability to punch with both hands will prove pivotal.

The Mayweather - Mosley fight will cap off an amazing day May 1 that also features the most wagered on single day event of the year, the Kentucky Derby.
