It’s official. Boxing’s biggest superstar (and six-time, undefeated world champion) Floyd “Money” Mayweather made his upcoming fight with welterweight mega-star and five-time world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley official today when he signed the contract that pits the two fighters against each other for a 12-round battle on Saturday, May 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The bout will, of course, be televised live on HBO Pay-Per-View.

OK, it isn’t Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, which is the fight we really wanted to see. But it is going to draw a ton of attention because these are two of the biggest names in boxing—and both future Hall of Famers. Floyd is 40-0 with 25 KOs. Shane is 46-5 with 39 KOs. These are two outstanding fighters. And this has the makings of a classic battle.

Floyd’s record speaks for itself. He’s at the pinnacle of his career, having unretired to fight (and beat) Juan Manuel Marquez back in September 2009. Shane just seems to be getting better with age. At 38-years-old, he has won seven of his past eight fights dating back to 2005, defeating the likes of Fernando Vargas (twice), Luis Collazo, Ricardo Mayorga, and Antonio Margarito. That’s impressive, but none of those fighters is Floyd Mayweather.

    Both Floyd Mayweather and Shane Mosley were bred to be fighters like a farmer’s prized horse. Both guys grew up with boxing gloves hanging from their crib ceilings. The debating can go on and on forever. The bottom line is neither guy is going to give you an inch – both fighters are relaxed in the ring, comfortable and fluid in such a way that it’s easy to believe boxing pumps through their veins in absence of blood. Mayweather vs Mosley im really looking forward to. Mayweather looked untouchable against the smaller Marquez and Mosley was awesome against Margarito. That fight was 18 months ago and previous to that Mosley looked ordinary against a washed up Mayorga. So is Shane still in top nick? I see Mosley starting fast using his jab to take the early rounds. Floyd usually starts slowly but will take control around round 5. The usual dropping of the shoulder and lightning counter punching will take Floyd home to a points victory and hopefully setting up the fight with Manny.
