Manny Pacquiao Picks Shane Mosley For Next Fight

If you had Shane Mosley in your “Who will Manny fight next?” office pool, then you are a winner. And you are also a nerd for getting an office pool going for something like this. Now try doing some actual work for once.

Top Rank dwindled the options down to three fighters and Manny Pacquiao has settled on Shane Mosley. The fight will be on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and can be seen on pay-per-view. Pacquiao will defend his welterweight title and the fight will be at the 147-pound welterweight limit.

Shane Mosley, 39, is 2-2-1 in his last five bouts. Also considered were Juan Manuel Marquez and Andre Berto. Shane Mosley was likely chosen because he represented the smallest risk against the biggest reward.
