My Boy Can Whup Your Boy

While it is a standard part of pre-fight hype for fighters to mouth off about each other, the Floyd Mayweather-Shane Mosley fight scheduled for May 1 in Las Vegas just offered a fascinating side show. The daddy lions were roaring about their boys.

Both Jack Mosley and Floyd Mayweather Sr. have had their ups and downs, as father and managers, with their sons. However, nothing is stopping them from grabbing themselves some limelight, most recently as two ends of a single conference call promoting their sons trying to beat the living daylights out of each other.

I know when Shane fights he fights the way I've trained him to fight... we've already laid the tracks across our brains how to fight him, ....It's not going to be a surprise to me when Shane wins because we've already had the strategies for years.  – Jack Mosley

First of all, I heard Jack. He is crazy ... Shane's going to get his ass whooped. ... Floyd's faster than Shane, much faster, much slicker, more clever, smarter. You understand? – Floyd Mayweather Sr.

Fight On!
