I like Shane Mosley, he is one of the nicest athletes I have ever met. Always has a smile on his face and never turns anyone down for an interview or picture.
With that being said as a fighter I lost a lot of respect for him during the Manny Pacquiao fight.
No one was thrilled that he got the shot against Pacquiao, but most of us figured that he would go out on his shield, but instead he cowered and ran in fear for the majority of time he was in the ring.
For people paying $55 on PPV and all the people who paid for flights, hotels and tickets to the fight it was an embarrassment.
Video footage has come out of Shane trying to quit on his stool even though he wasn’t visibly hurt. It is definitely another slap in the face of fans who were hoping for a competitive fight. He wanted to pack it in and collect his check, truly pathetic.
Thank goodness for Naazim Richardson who basically told Mosley to “stop complaining” and forced him to finish fight. If Mosley ever gets another big money fight, trust me I won’t be watching, I already know the outcome.
I bet his girlfriend Bella Gonzalez dreams of Manny Pacquiao or Clubber Lang.
