Mosley vs Mora on PPV!!!!

dogofwar2010-12-12 15:58:45 +0000 #1
The fast-fading, 38 year old, former champion, Sugar Shane Mosley, is going to fight on. He's close to inking a deal to fight Sergio Mora on September 18th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Both fighters are promoted by Golden Boy, so it's an easy bout to make. The fight would take place on PPV and be a part of a Mexican Independence Day showcase.

Apparently, Mosley is turning down the opportunity to fight Sergio Martinez because he's not up to the challenge at this point in his career. A fight with Andre Berto was considered, but it likely won't happen because Golden Boy doesn't want to give Berto a 50/50 split.

Tell us readers: would you pay money to see Mora v. Mosley?

Haha once I read the title I thought you were endorsing this fight and I came in with straight ****ing ammo.

This thread reminds me of how ****ty boxing has become.

Pacquiao vs. Mayweather is the only fight I am interested in seeing at this point. I'd actually pay money to see that fight which I haven't done for boxing in like 6 years.

I actually want to see all the Super Six fights plus Bute against any and all of them. I want to see just about every match up the 140 lb division has. And I really want to see Haye against either Klitschko, so boxing as a lot for me right know.

Plus, I'd watch this fight, just not on PPV.

There have been worse PPV's. It seems like over the last 7 years or so almost anyone can make a PPV. Latino fighters/promtors seem to exploit PPV's more than anyone.I dont blame Shane for trying to make a few $ for himself before expiring for boxing. His name alone should amount to something. There was a time when I watched pretty much every PPV out there. Now I hardly see 1 in every 10.

5 years ago HBO would have aired this fight in a second. The fall of HBO's boxing is a big cause of this. If I'm not mistaken, Goldenboy , which Shane is affiliated with, has agreements with HBO. (Maybe Dog'o can correct me). Not only has HBO's network quality gone seriously downhill in terms of movies and miniseries produced, their boxing is at an all time low. Showtime is far better than HBO in many ways, something no one would have dreamed possible 5 years ago. Better miniseries, boxing and now MMA. Hearing Mauro Renallo try and sell the Super Six during a Strikeforce card was very smart IMO. Why try and kill off boxing with MMA when you can have both, smart strategy by the gods of Showtime.
