May 1st, 2010. 2 ring veterans; undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather and “Sugar Shane Mosley collided in a non title Welterweight Superfight. Mosley was originally scheduled to take on Andre Berto in a WBC and WBA Welterweight Unification a few months ago but it was called off (with the entire undercard pulled) due to the tragic Haiti earthquake where Berto lost a few of his family members.

Prefight records; Mayweather 40(25)-0, Mosley 46(39)-5.

Entering the bout, Mosley was a Triple Crown World Champion who won world titles at Lightweight, Welterweight & Light Middleweight. Over the course of his 17 year career, he garnered commendable wins over Antonio Diaz, Wilfredo Rivera, John John Molina, Golden Johnson, Luis Collazo, Jesse James Leija, Phillip Holiday, Ricardo Mayorga, Antonio Margarito, Fernando Vargas (2x) & Oscar De La Hoya (2x).

On the other hand, the 4-1 betting favorite Mayweather was world champion in 5 different weight divisions; Super Featherweight, Lightweight, Light Welterweight, Welterweight & Light Middleweight. In his 14 year pro career, he had defeated a great number of notable oppositions such as Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Arturo Gatti, Jesús Chávez, Carlos Hernandez, Sharmba Mitchell, DeMarcus Corley, Gregorio Vargas, Carlos Gerena, Genaro Hernandez, Angel Manfredy, Carlos Baldomir, Diego Corrales, Oscar De La Hoya, Zab Judah & Jose Luis Castillo (2x).

However, Mosley’s UD12 win over De La Hoya in their 2nd meeting was controversial as most observers thought the Golden Boy clearly outboxed Sugar Shane to win the majority of the rounds. Oppositely, Floyd’s UD12 win over Jose Luis Castillo (their 1st meeting) was highly questionable as many felt that El Temible was the apparent winner.

Although 38 year old Mosley was somewhat past his prime at this point, he started off well in the opening round and had his best moments in the 2nd where he staggered Mayweather with a thunderous right hand followed by 2 more rights that nearly sent the 33 year old Floyd to the canvas.

However, from the 3rd frame on Money May adjusted and took control of the bout with his superior boxing skills & ring intelligence to largely dominate Sugar Shane, who had visibly slower hand speed and declined mobility despite still carrying power in both hands.

Moreover, Mosley had been inactive for about 15 months going into the fight.

Floyd’s patented right hand was especially sharp as razor; consistently finding the mark on Mosley’s chin with little to no trouble for the remaining 10 rounds en route to a lopsided UD12 win.

The 3 judges scored it 119-109 (2x) & 118-110 for Money Mayweather who remained undefeated with a perfect 41(25)-0 record.

By CompuBox Punch Stats, Mayweather connected with a staggering 46% of his power shots and 44% of total punches thrown.
