A week ago I read an article in the Las Vegas Sun talking about the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Jr./Sugar Shane Mosley fight. Obviously there’s a ton riding on this fight — possibly $30 million for Floyd should he win and agree to fight Manny Pacquiao. According to the article, Mayweather feels like he has a mental advantage in the fight because Shane got a new tattoo recently:
“I think he’s kind of out of character,” Mayweather said. “We all know that’s not the real Shane Mosley. The guy waits until he’s 38 to get tattoos? Come on.”
Obviously I was wondering what the big deal was with Mosley getting a new tattoo that caused Mayweather to treat it like it were Mike Tyson’s face ink. Well, thanks to a story at The Sweet Science, I finally saw a picture of Mosley’s tattoo that had caused all the drama. Here it is:
It definitely has a trendy/tribal feel to it and doesn’t seem to go along with who Shane Mosley is, so I see Floyd’s point. Mayweather will have his chance to make his point in the ring on May 1st. He better not screw this one up otherwise it would go down as one of boxing’s biggest blunders.
