Video: Shane Mosley Wanted to Quit Against Manny Pacquiao After 9th Round
Anyone who shelled out the $55 to watch Shane Mosley run from Manny Pacquiao for 12 rounds last month knows he was only there to collect a paycheck (a fat one at that). It will probably tick you off even more knowing that Mosley wanted his corner to stop the fight after the 9th round. Check out this video from Showtime Sports:
Examiner says that exchange took place either before or after the 10th round, and it appears the ring card lady is holding up a 10, making me believe this was before the 10th. Showtime sent out this teaser to try and entice people to watch the final Pacquiao-Mosley Fight Camp 360 episode Saturday evening as a lead-in to their Glen Johnson-Carl Froch bout.
I’m sure they had the clearance from Mosley to use any material they dig up, but I’m guessing Shane will probably be ticked off that this became public. It’s not like he’ll be fighting anyone else, but this is just a blow to his already harmed reputation, not to mention his ego. Then again, at least he and Oscar De La Hoya have something else in common. I also wonder what Shane’s hot girlfriend will think of it.
