it is bs that mosley has to keep fighting because a judge decided to give his money to mosleys x wife wife . why give it to the x wife was she a champ did she get punched tens of thousands of times in the face and body she never lost brain cells in the ring .she was even awarded one of his championship belts .joe lewis had to keep fighting because he owed the goverment money mosley has to keep fighting bcause the courts gave away his money to his x wife

Of course big respect to these guys, but my natural reaction is to say…………ahh bollocks who cares?

Actually, I think Paulie broke his right hand or wrist in his fight with Cano.

Ray Ray, if Paulie’s hands have healed well and stay uninjured during the fight, he’ll beat Shane Mosley.

Doesn’t really make sence me. Disagree with 1 sided fight against Alvarez, old man Mosley gave Alvarez way more trouble than he bargained 4…If he fights like that again I give him a chance of beating paulie. Paulie couldnt punch the froth off a cappachino. This is a lose lose situation 4 paulie. If he loses he’s a joke, if hecwins he gets bashed by madiana. 60% paulie 40% Mosley…..I’l still watch this

Mick, my mistake in refering to the IBF. It will in fact be a WBA title fight and even though the WBA has basically the same rules regarding championship bouts as the IBF, the WBA ranks Mosley #14 as a welterweight so Malignaggi can fight him, as long as he still fights the mandatory contender within 9 months of winning his belt over Senchenko last year.

I like the fight but I have to AGREE that it is a lack of fairness to those contenders who deserve the shot vs Paulie.

The wrost PPV I ever saw was Mosley vs Mora. I saw it at the theatre luckily so it was $15 instea of $50. There are so many better matches that could have been on but Golden Boy often provides junk and then you wonder why you have to wait so long to see another fight in the theatres… I understand this is a decent matchup in name value to Showime but yes, it should not be a titlefight opportunity for Mosley.

SREDMOND I agree, with all due respect who wants to watch washed up fighters shadows of their former serfs, Sugar Shane prime example he is going down the RRJ road, They are lucky to have made millions and still have their faculty’s, conning the casual viewer if you ask me.

At some point the public will wake up and take a stand with the obvious MONOPOLY Golden Boy has at Showtime. Every date is given to Golden Boy and they have carte Blanche to put on whomever they want, whenever they want. Canelo V. Josesito Lopez, now this, sprinkle in another Hopkins fight (he did lose his last bout) and countless similar under cards building up the same handful of fighters show after show, while robbing the public the opportunity of seeing any real sampling of up and coming contenders outside of the Golden Boy stable. I don’t blame GBP for this, it’s smart business on their part, but Showtime should be taken to task. There are scores of fighters outside the GBP stable that the public would love to see, yet for whatever reason, the powers that be continue to enable Golden Boy by allowing them to deliver substandard programming time and time again, while rejecting much higher quality cards from other promoters.

Malignaggi might just win this one. Shane used to be the man but he has lost in 3 of 4 of his last bouts with one being a draw. Loses coming to top opponents. I would say Shane has a better chance of winning than Malignaggi has of scoring a stoppage.

The only way this fight could gain any credence would be for the winner to fight the victor of Devon Alexander/Kell Brook’s forth coming IBF title fight!

BOOOOORING… Mark my word… You will see Paulie running around in circles tagging mosley, and mosley trying to catch him with a big right. Paulie slips every punch and Mosley just uses veteran tactics to make it past the 6th round on his feet. Paulie by unanimous decision.

Posted January 16, 2013 5:49 pm 


Just my insight

I am going on to say Mosely will beat Paulie..lets print this here, so after it happens we can look back and say yep..I was right….

Quote: First off, how is that that the International Boxing Federation are going to allow Mosley, who isn’t ranked int the top 15 by any of the sanctioning bodies, to fight for a World title? What’s it gotta do with the IBF, if it’s a WBA title fight?

Malinaggi is a top lad but is no more that a bar of soap in a boxing ring, elusive and hard to nail but throws very little that does anything. This fight is boring to talk about and will be boring to watch.

“how is that that the International Boxing Federation are going to allow Mosley…” Hard to say, Bill, I’m wondering myself. IBF rules state that a champion is required to defend his title every nine months against a leading, available contender. But in the interim, the champion can fight other opponents who are rated in the top 15 in his weight class, as “set forth in the ratings of the IBF/USBA…” As you stated, Mosley is not even rated in the top 15 either by the IBF or the USBA. Additionally, what does Schaefer or GBP have to do with anything? Schaefer says he will “let” Mosley have another title shot? If the fight does happen, it breaks a lot of rules and someone should sue both the IBF and Golden Boy. Meanwhile, I hope Paulie decides to fight a real contender. I’ve always had faith in you as a champion Paulie. Now. Act like one.

Malignaggi by decision.

SREDMOND

Mosley is beyond WASHED UP, it is clear he is fighting off of his name and cannot pull the trigger anymore.. Malignaggi is not going to beat him senseless but he should be able to embarass what used to be Sugar Shane… Guys like Mosely unfortunately need that serious KO or TKO loss to send them on their way…I see Shane becoming a more durable version of RJJ fighting in Poland and other obscure venues as circus entertainment for more relevant and younger foes… SAD

Should be a fun fight. I’ll watch it.

Paulie wins easy, Mosley way past it, honestly I don’t want to watch Mosely again retire and stay retired.

If Mosley doesn’t beat Paulie. It will the most enbarrasing fight ever for Mosley.

Yeah I got to agree with most on here. Mosley does not deserve a shot, this is not a sport that says what have you done in the sport, that is at the end of your career for the HOF, this is what have you done for me now. All Mosley has done is lose. He definitely does not deserve a shot

Geesuz. Mosley really needs to hang em up. How old is the guy now? The guy hasn’t been relevant since 2001. That was ELEVEN years ago. His win rate is about 50% since then.

Its not about who he has fought, it is about who has he beat. I am all for guys getting another shot, just earn it. There are too many fighters out there busting their asses only to get passed up because this guy has a name. Mosley should stay retired, he isn’t the fighter he once was. Hasn’t had a good performance in a long time.

Yea, how did Mosley get this title shot?! I mean who has Shane fought in the last four years? Certainly no one I’ve heard of. Here’s the list: Mayweather, Mora, Pacquiao and Alvarez… sounds like a bunch of nobodies to me. I say if you’re losing to fighters of this caliber, don’t even talk about another title shot, you might as well pack it in.

Posted January 15, 2013 10:06 pm 


UJelly?

I’d be surprised if Mosley could take this one. He’s historically struggled against anyone that gives him too much movement (e.g. the second De La Hoya fight, Mora, etc) and Malignaggi will give him plenty whilst firing shots back (albeit light ones, but enough to win rounds). I figure Paulie by pretty wide UD.

Even an old dog can bite. It’s hard to see Malignaggi winning this one. He doesn’t have the firepower to stop Mosley coming into range, and even at 50% power Shane will smoke Malignaggi over 12 grusome rounds.

I guess they are setting Mosely up with a title, so Khan can take it off him when he moves up in weight. What a stack of s

why is Mosley embarassing him, boxing and his record??? He already did it by fighting alvarez and now this light fisted bum???
He is going down the same road as Roy Jones

Borincano

Paulie is going to get stopped. I got beat by a 140 pounder, but got the nod. Mosely has been resting his body and given the chance will beat Paulie. Does he deserve a title chance, hell no.
