May 7th, 2011. The legendary Manny Pacquiao takes on “Sugar” Shane Mosley in the 2nd defense of his WBO Welterweight Championship in a mega fight billed as “The Undaunted”. At this time, the fighting congressman from the Philippines was rated the No. 1 Best P4P Fighter in the World.

Prefight records; Pacquiao 52(38)-3-2, Mosley 46(39)-9.

For nearly 6 years, Pacquiao had been unbeaten; going 15(10)-0 between September 2005 to November 2010 where he triumphed mostly against top oppositions.

On the other hand, the 6-1 betting underdog Mosley who was somewhat past his best at this juncture had a record of 2(2)-2-1 in his last 5 outings between September 2007 to September 2010.

Entering the bout, Mosley who won world titles at Lightweight, Welterweight & Light Middleweight had amassed victories over top rated fighters such as John Brown, Antonio Diaz, Shannan Taylor, Golden Johnson, Jesse James Leija, John John Molina, Luis Collazo, Wilfredo Rivera, Ricardo Mayorga, Philip Holiday, Antonio Margarito, Fernando Vargas (2x) & Oscar De La Hoya (2x).

On the other hand, Pacquiao who is the only 8 division World Champion in history had notable victories over David Diaz, Hector Velazquez, Jorge Solis, Oscar Larios, Fahprakorb Rakkiatgym, Nedal Hussein, Lehlo Ledwaba, Miguel Cotto, Jorge Eliecer Julio, Chatchai Sasakul, Ricky Hatton, Oscar De La Hoya, Medgoen Singsurat, Antonio Margarito, Joshua Clottey, Marco Antonio Barrera (2x) & Erik Morales (2x).

He was world champion at Flyweight, Super Bantamweight, Featherweight, Super Featherweight, Lightweight, Super Lightweight, Welterweight & Light Middleweight.

Both fighters fought at a measured pace in the opening round but from the 2nd stanza on, Pacquiao opened up with his combinations to take control of the fight. He floored Mosley in the 3rd with a pinpoint left hand.

It was only the 3rd time in Mosley’s career that he had tasted the canvas; he suffered the first 2 knockdowns of his career nearly a decade ago against “The Viper” Vernon Forrest where he lost his WBC Welterweight Crown.

From that moment on, the 39 year old Mosley who was once the No. 1 P4P Best Fighter in the World looked every bit his age; unable to return fire and utterly overwhelmed by the speed and volume punching of Pacquiao.

In the 10th, Pacquiao went down from a push (not shown) which Bayless erroneously ruled a knockdown. He would later apologized to Freddie Roach for that mistake. However, none of the judges included the knockdown in their scoring as replays clearly indicated Manny was shoved down to the mat.

This was the 2nd time in the career of the Filipino legend in which he was wrongly ruled to have been knocked down. It occurred for the 1st time back in December 2003, when he lost his balance as Barrera accidentally stepped on his foot while he was throwing a punch but referee Laurence Cole called it knockdown by mistake.

In the 4th, Pacquiao suffered from a cramp in his left leg that bothered him through the entire fight which he explained as the reason why he could not go for the knockout despite having hurt Mosley in the previous round. Roach stated that his fighter had had such problems in training camps but this was the 1st time that it happened during a fight.

After 12 rounds, Pacquiao retained his WBO Welterweight Title via a lopsided UD12 with scores of 120-108, 120-107 & 119-108.

By CompuBox Punchstats, Pacquiao outlanded Mosley by a staggering 158 total punches.

Even though Sugar Shane was largely dominated and arguably won none of the rounds, he displayed tremendous courage and to his credit managed to land a couple of right hands (particularly in the 1st half) despite being overwhelmed by the sensational speed and volume punching of the Filipino ATG.

“I just fought the best fighter in the world. He has exceptional power. I’ve never been hit like that before.”
– Shane Mosley

Despite his successful title defense against Sugar Shane, Pacquiao was not completely happy with his performance.

“It’s good, but I’m not really 100% satisfied because he’s moving around and he didn’t want to fight toe-to-toe with me.”
– Manny Pacquiao
