Floyd Mayweather: Win Vs. Mosley to Enhance My Legacy
WBA welterweight champion Shane Mosley‘s “great accomplishments” will not be enough to inflict the first defeat on Floyd Mayweather Jr.‘s boxing career. Mayweather made the claim as their non-title match on May 1 approaches. “Like I have always said before … there is no remedy on how to beat Floyd Mayweather,” the flamboyant 33-year-old undefeated said.
Mosley’s WBA title is not on the line, but Mayweather is not at all worried, saying that he no longer needs any title at this stage in his career. “I did not want to fight for the WBA title…at this point, it’s all about enhancing my legacy.”
Mayweather, who retired briefly in 2007 before coming back last year with a unanimous decision win over Juan Manuel Marquez, said he is confident of winning against Mosley because “when Shane punches, a lot of times he closes his eyes.”
The Mayweather-Mosley fight at the MGM Grand Arena on May 1 became possible after negotiations between Mayweather and seven-division champion Manny Pacquiao hit a dead end.
