Unbeaten boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over WBA welterweight champion Shane Mosley (46-6, 39 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Not many connects in round one, but Mosley rocked Mayweather with some hard shots in round two. It was all Mayweather after that. Floyd boxed well in round three and four as Mosley was unable to catch him. A lot of feinting but not much fighting in round five – advantage Floyd. Mosley was unable to deal with Floyd’s speed as Floyd picked him apart. Knowing he’s down on the cards, Mosley tried to force exchanges, but Floyd’s counters did more damage. Floyd was able to hit Mosley at will down the stretch as Shane was just unable to figure him out. Scores were 119-109, 119-109, 118-110. After the fight, Mayweather said he would not fight Pacquiao unless Pacquiao agrees to blood testing. It is believed Mosley’s WBA belt will be vacated as Floyd was not fighting for the WBA title. This leaves little known Vyacheslav Senchenko as WBA champion.
