Mayweather survives a rough 2nd round and defeats Mosley


LAS VEGAS – Floyd Mayweather won a unanimous decision over Shane Mosley in their 12-round welterweightmayweather fight results championship Saturday night in front of 15,117 fans at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

An aggressive effort by Mosley in the 2nd round stunned Mayweather as much as it did the crowd who witnessed Mayweather almost buckle to the canvas from a few hard shots.

 After surviving that barrage, Mayweather, who is considered one of the world’s best pound-for-pound fighters, regrouped and responded by taking control of the fight.

Mayweather did appear to hurt Mosley in the 7th and 8th rounds but, like Mayweather, Mosley refused to go to the canvas.

From that point on Mayweather basically went through the motions, outscoring his opponent well enough to cakewalk to another victory. Mosley, 38 years old, was fighting for the first time in almost a year and a half and looked his age towards the end of the fight.

Judge Robert Hoyle scored the bout 118-110 while judges Adalaide Byrd and Dave Moretti each scored it 119-109.

Mayweather complemented Mosley after the fight saying:

“He’s a hell of a fighter, what more can I say. He’s a future Hall of Famer.”

When asked about the drug testing that was responsible for killing the negotiations for a Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao fight, Mayweather said he remains ready to fight when Manny agrees to Olympic-style drug testing, the same testing Mosley agreed to for this fight.

The sellout crowd included Muhammad Ali, Will Smith, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mike Tyson, Jay-Z and Paris Hilton.

NFL Mid-Week Hottest News


The Seattle Seahawks started cleaning house this week after their underachieving 2-5 start. Falling victim to the axe edgerrin-jameswas running back Edgerrin James along with defensive backs Travis Fisher and C.J. Wallace.

After a successful run in Indianapolis and a trip to last year’s Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals, James suddenly finds himself in the unemployment line just months after signing with the Seahawks.

In St. Louis, Rams’ return specialist Danny Amendola was limited to riding a stationary bicycle during the team’s practice on Tuesday while he still tries to clear the cobwebs from a vicious hit by Detroit Lions Zack Follett during Sunday’s 17-10 victory in Detroit.

Amendola said he “He didn’t remember leaving the field” and rookie head coach Steve Spagnuola also commented on Amendola’s condition, “He cleared [his head] within two days. Usually if it takes a little bit longer, then you get a concern. He still has some symptoms so they’re not taking any chances.”

Here’s the hit here:

 

In legal news, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell approached Congress, asking them to intervene and protect the league from state laws that are hampering the league from suspending players who fail drug tests, like the Starcaps case currently being battled in the courts.

“You don’t want to have 435 members of Congress writing a law that would have in any way some immediate conduct and effect on your players,” Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., told Goodell. “You don’t want us to get involved in this. You can’t tell what members of Congress will ultimately do once you open up this Pandora’s Box.”

Yeah, like actually enforcing the rules and testing all the obvious steroid abusers in the league and suspending them for several games or even seasons at a time.

Watch what you wish for Mr. Goodell and if you have any doubts, give MLB Commissioner Selig a quick text so he can talk a little sense into you.
