Knockout Funny: Shane Mosley Says He’ll KO Manny Pacquiao

There are a lot of funny guys in the world today. There’s Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell just to name a few. Depending on your sense of humor, everyone has their own favorite comedian. Mine happens to be Sugar Shane Mosley.

I don’t know what it is about Manny Pacquiao, but for some reason all of his opponents instantly turn into comedians when they sign the contract to fight him. You won’t believe how hilarious Mosley’s latest one-liner is.

“Pacquiao’s defense is not as good as Floyd Mayweather’s defense. I think I can probably win a decision, but I’m pretty much looking to try and go in there knock Pacquiao out,” said Mosley.


That may be the funniest thing I’ve heard a fighter say since Antonio Margarito said he was going to do the same thing! Everyone knows Mosley isn’t going to try to knockout Manny Pacquiao. Deep down, I have to believe Mosley is smarter than that. If he tries to KO Manny, he might as well dig his own grave.

Floyd Mayweather may have a better defense than Pacquiao, but that’s all Money May has! Pacman has a much better offense with way more power, faster hands and a killer instinct.

If Mosley wants to win this fight he better keep telling jokes and MAYBE Pacquiao will start laughing so hard that he losses concentration. That’s the only way Sugar Shane can win.

  2. Terrible article. Shane can Ko Manny check his knoock out percentage, the man went 38-0 with 35 kos’, will he is another story. In regards to mayweather only have defense, maybe you should watch when he offensively dismantled Gatti. Your views are very slanted. Articles like this kill boxing, let the best fight the best and let the cards fall where they may.

    • Even mayweather can’t stand a chance with pacquiao, mayweather will run as scared as fried chicken and all he do is to defense his face like clottey did… mayweather knows he doesn’t have a chance in pacquiao that’s way his running… pacquiao will retire soon as the best boxer ever lived.

  3. Well, don’t count the old man Mosley out yet! He may be old but experienced. I watched his fight with Mayweather and I still believe he can still do what we think impossible for him to do with Manny Pacquiao. If he wants to really go for a knockout, he should do it in one of the first 5 rounds. Otherwise,in the sixth or seventh round he will (not would) be the one to go to dreamland with a loud “thug” like Sir Hatton. Why? Because by the sixth round with the relentless style of Pacquiao, Sir Old Mosley will be panting like an old dog!

      If you watch the Mosley vs. Mayweather fight closely, you’ll notice that Mosley is seriously winded from round 4 and on. That is the main reason why he probably won’t last versus Pacquiao.

      Mayweather is a pace fighter, he doesn’t mind winning a decision over a course of 10 or 12 rounds.
      Pacquiao, by nature, is a relentless fighter who outworks his opponent with his punch volume.

      Both seem to get stronger as the fight goes on, but Pacquiao punch output is considerably higher.

    Aside from the opponents being proved wrong, the funniest out of all are the HATERS.

      Well said my friend! Well said! All of them keep yappin their mouths off whuile not in the dance floor. But when the time comes and the couple come to meet, why do I always see Manny leading the dance and seeing his partners stumble?

      I’d love to see old Mo kiss the canvass just like Hatton and kiss the night to Lala land.

    • What if Mosley really didn’t trained hard enough to last for twelve round against Mayweather Jr. and this time against Pacquiao all the African American haters will help Mosley in training him even through their own small way such as motivation, for they hated Pacquiao so much they want him out of the picture for good,isn’t it a distinct possibility?Why would they allow Floyd to be destoyed by their own kind if it is possible not to?and still remain as an elite contender and maintained Mayweather Jr.’s invincibility for not having any lost in his fight record.There is power even it’s coming from negativity,which Pacquiao’s camp knew about that’s why they don’t take any fight so lightly.

    they keep saying that they will knock manny out,,,but in the end,, Manny knock their a§§e§§ out or breakin up their faces like chorizo..bwahahahahahaaha:D
    same thing is gonna happen to MOSLEY…im so tired hearing this crap!!!
    By the way,,,i just read this from the other side;;;;
    Bob Arum is correct,,,JMM should fight Berto & if he wins then a 3rd fight with Manny is on…I think thats right,,,JMM should fight Berto & prove that he can do better at 147lbs. coz Manny will put him to rest permanently!

      Definitely! JMM should take out Berto first in order to have a third shot at Manny. He must prove himself worthy first.

      Manny went up in weight categories to prove him self first. Why the heck should all of them funny guys call him out with no basis of experience on Manny’s current weight class?

  8. Mosley just wants a good retirement check. He knows that Pacquiao will send him to dreamland. But it is still worth it as he will be sent by the best in the world.

  9. Mosley is still competitive within six rounds. Possibly he can knock Pacquiao out if he can catch him with a good shot. The big question is how he can catch a faster and smarter Pacquiao. The best for Mosley to do is train hard for 12 rounds show.If Mosley finish all the way up to 12 rounds, it is good enough for the paying fans.

  11. I’ve watched the video of Pacquiao vs marquez many times. The only rounds pacquaio had won i think only the Ist & 2nd round when he KO JMM, after that, all the way to I2, JMM sent marquez to school. Video don’t lie!

    • You should’ve been one of the judges then and maybe JMM might’ve won by a split decision. Look, the only way for JMM to win against MP is to have 3 judges come from Mexico, pick Joe Cortez as the referee (hispanic), and tie Manny’s left hand to his side. If Manny knocks JMM down 3 times with his right, Joe can rule all three as a slip. If JMM is knocked out as Manny is capable of doing that now against Juan, then Joe can make up a call and disqualify Manny. All these criteria will guarantee a win for JMM and will finally avenge all the humiliation Mexico received from one small Filipino.

  12. Why is everyone laughing at the big black guy? Age can be timeless… Myself, I enjoy the challenge of a young punk, they like to think we’re over the hill, so let them think that way… Lets get it on, Punk…I’m just an old Man, punk..

  13. The haters of Manny Pacquiao say that he is overrated, over-hyped fighter. Now if Manny fights an old man they say he’s choosing an easy fight.

  14. If the same Mosley that showed up against Mayweather shows up against Pacquiao, it may be lights out for Shane.

    If you watch Mayweather vs. Mosley, Shane looked exhausted from round 4 and on. It would appear that Mosley just doesn’t have it anymore, especially judging from his fight with Mora. That was just a terrible performance against a C class figher, at best!

    Pacquiao is a man of compassion. But if he chooses to not show any on fight night and tries to 1-up Mayweather, he will definitely put Mosley out for the first time in Shane’s career. It’s all hype at this point. Of course Mosley is going to come out and say he’s gonna knock Pacquiao out. This is a requirement these days in order to sell a fight that everyone knows shouldn’t have been made in the first place.

    I like Mosley, but he’s in WAY over his head this time!

  15. Shane Mosley is better than Marquez and Berto combined.

    Marquez is scared of going to welterweight except when his retirement is assured like getting retired by Pac with an $8Million insurance.

    Berto was too scared of Mosley when he opted to skip his contracted schedule. Berto has never fought a class A fighter.

    Marquez should be the stepping stone of Berto in a welter clash, anyway Marquez can’t beat anyone at welterweight.

      I respect your opinion, but the fact is that Marquez is more talented than Mosley and Berto. Not combined obviously, that just doesn’t make sense.

      If you watch Marquez fight, you’ll notice the man has pin point accuracy and doesn’t fold under pressure. He can take a punch and give right back. He is one of the best Mexican fighters in history as well as one of the best and most accurate counter punchers in the game.
      The reason he couldn’t hang with Mayweather is because he was up 2 weight classes from his own division.

      Pacquiao had a very hard time with Marquez when they fought at lightweight due to the facts that I just stated. If you don’t believe me, go back and watch both fights.
      Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge Pacquiao fan, but I’m a boxing fan first. And as a boxing fan I can tell you that Pacquiao was hurt more in those 2 fights than Marquez was.

      Marquez is the best 135 pound fighter out there and he should stick to that weight. Any higher and he is just too sluggish slow.

      Berto was never scared of Mosley. He pulled out because he lost 8 family members due to the Haiti earthquake. Let’s speak logic here. Berto was in no mental condition to fight Mosley at that point. And if you know boxing, you know that it is FAR more mental than it is physical.

      Although I do agree that Berto has never faced a class A fighter. Closest to it would be Quintana, who actually beat Paul Williams legitimately, and Luis Collazo, who at one point in his career was considered to be a top 10 pound for pound welterweight.
      I actually believe that had Berto fought Mosley, Berto would have came away with the decision and quite possibly could have stopped Mosley. Berto has that killer instinct and would be looking for an impressive victory. So if he was given the opportunity, you better believe he would have take full advantage of it.

      I also agree with you that Marquez would only be willing to move up to 147 to fight Pacquiao for his retirement check. He knows he’s not as effective at 147 as he is at 135, as do Roach and Pacquiao.
      The best Marquez can do is 140, and that would still be a little risky for Marquez due to the talent and depth of that division.

      We may not agree on this subject, but you do make a couple valid points.

      Thanks and have a Happy Holidays!

    Mosley…. was hired to get pacman look good. He would do everything Bob wants him to… jump through hoops… jump through hoops. Throw jokes once in a while…. thats his role. But His role does not say anything of him winning. He is the jokester in this latest charade of Bob “the greed” Arum. Sounds like the Grinch…. Merry Christmas.

  17. I believe Mayweather has great defense.
    But Manny has the better defence……COUNTER ATTACKS!!!
    A good example is the Margarito fight.
    He kept Tony at bay with his storming COUNTER ATTACKS.

  18. Pacquiao still the number one pound for pound boxer in the world! until now they finding ways to beat him but still they have no answer… even mayweather is really scared to fight him… who’s next! Mosley!????… Hope after this he will retire and serve his people in sarangani philippines & be president someday!=)

  19. hilarious! but in fairness to mosley he can fight competetively in 2 rounds, if his prediction doesn’t happen in 2 rounds, then he’s in big trouble & might suffer worse fate than what margarito experienced. But if he’s in his best shape/condition, who knows, he might hurt pac inside 5 rounds, but i doubt it if he could knock him down/out cause through the years specially since pac moved up in weight he bacame stronger, always in vg condition… happy ;>

  23. Mr. Manny Pacquiao will be fighting a black fighter who is quick and strong with power to knock people out. His name is Mr. Shane Mosley. Every writers, trainers, promoters, boxers and fans are saying that Mr. Manny Pacquiao will have a hard time, get knocked out or even get school with someone like a black fighter who is quick to the punch. Well, we will see if these theories are true or not. The world awaits of this big fight. I will tell you this right now. Who ever Mr. Manny Pacquiao fights on the ring, they better be preferred, train hard and have their A game. Because if you are inside the ring with Mr. Manny pacquiao and you are not focus and doesn’t have a mean bone in your body, You will get the worst beating of your life. This MAN is totally different when he gets in the ring. He looks like a kid in a candy store when he walks into the ring. He smile, he laughs and he gives everyone the atmost respect. But the minute the bell rings, he turns into this type of ANIMAL that you never seen before. He is fast, he will throw 3-4-5 punches and then backs-up and move into an angle and throws another 4-5-6-7-8 punches with blinding speed and power. And then you realized that you are in for a long night and in your mind, this small Pilipino from the Philippines is kicking your ass… Your thoughts all of a sudden went from focus to fear to shell shock. Wow!!! What the hell are you in for. You realized after you get out of the ring and right to the hospital and get out of the hospital after a week or so that the fighter who you just fought and lost to named PACMAN IS ONE BAD ASS PILIPINO… Mr. Shane Mosley, Mr. Manny Pacquiao, Merry Christmas and God Bless to you both. May the best man be victorious….

  24. Is that Manny Pacquiao in the picture? He should not be laughing that way. If Mayweather, Sr. sees this picture of Pacman, he will think his son is much prettier than Pacman. My suggestion to Pacman – smile and grin, don’t laugh to death. No good, man! Pacman looks so funny when he laughs that way. Anyway, Mosley is right, guys. Mayweather’s defense is extraordinary. Mayweather’s style of defending himself is very similar to my style of defending myself when I was 7 years old. You know, modesty aside, I was naughty when I was a young boy. I kissed girls. My late father was so proud of me. But when I started to kiss old women, my late father was so mad that he used to hit me with stick everytime he saw me kissing our 70-year old spinster neighbor. To avoid hit on the face and body, I learned how to use my shoulder and criss-crossed my arms to parry the stick. I mastered that technique of self-defense. And it’s good – – because I married a temperamental woman. When we have fights, natural for a normal couple, she batters me with her slippers. That “Mayweather” self-defense of mine always saves me from scratches and blackeye. Unfortunately, because my religion does not tolerate a man beating a woman; I never learned the art of offense. So, I am extremely defensive and zero offensive. Even my breath and smell of my body are not offensive. Really zero offensive.

    Well, speaking of Mosley, o, yes, he can knock out Pacquiao. Why not? Though he is old, he still packs a devastating punch, my friends. The only question is – can he hit Pacquiao with a really big punch once before he gets hit 1-2-3-4-5 combinations of left and right powerful punches of Pacman that sent Hatton to dreamland?

  25. hahahah! Shane please take a look again how the way you fought FloydJr. As you can see, it seems you are afraid to get hit by a not-so-hard puncher FloydJr. You’re so awkward! I thought you’re relentless but you’re not. It’s a huge opportunity for you when you caught Floyd one time in a very near knockdown but you did nothing! you don’t have follow-up punch. I really don’t think you will not do it again against the Pacman. I am so sure you’ll be more wiser on how you will fight the Pacman…Use the ring and surely you’ll get a bunch of booze.
