Floyd Mayweather, Jr., 41-0, 25 KO’s, continued his dominance over the sport of boxing with an easy unanimous decision over former welterweight champion, “Sugar” Shane Mosley, 46-6, 39 KO’s, by the scores of 119-109 (twice) and 118-110. Mosley looked all of his 38-years and showed all the signs of a fighter well beyond his prime. He could see the openings, but couldn’t release the punches.
The only bright spot for him was when he landed a right hand in round two that buckled the knees of Mayweather, Jr., but other than that, it was a one sided “Money” show. After the second round, Mosley fans at Hogate’s, a popular night spot on the Waterfront in Southwest, D.C., were silenced and lost hope that Shane could pull off the upset as he repeatedly took big blows from Mayweather.
