Mosley back in the mix?

By Dennis Principe

As Miguel Cotto has been apparently adamant in fighting Manny Pacquiao at 145lbs, the Filipino boxing sensation is now looking at the possibility of accepting the challenge of Shane Mosley. Pacquiao’s lawyer Jeng Gacal said the Filipino boxer is now considering the option of battling Mosley at a catchweight of 143. In one of his few guest appearances with the daily morning “Sports Chat” Mosley once said he is willing to meet Pacquiao halfway, possibly at a catch weight of 144. Cotto meanwhile remains steadfast with his preferred weight. Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach previously told “Sports Chat” that he prefers to have Cotto as Pacquiao’s next opponent and that a bout with Mosley may only be possible if the American agrees to move down to 143. Only recently though Mosley decided to look for another opponent as Pacquiao’s camp kept on ignoring Mosley’s public challenge. Cotto is the holder of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight belt while Mosley currently owns the World Boxing Association (WBA) strap.
