article imageFloyd's Legal Problems Could Lead To Pacquiao Vs. Mosley Fight

By Leo Reyes     Sep 19, 2010 in Sports
The world's most-desired boxing fight between undefeated Floyd Mayweather,Jr and Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao may not happen after all as new charges continue to build up on Mayweather following his assault on former girl friend Josie Harris in Las Vegas
The charges could lead to a jail term for Mayweather which could prevent him from facing Pacquiao next year for the world's richest fight in boxing history.
Mayweather's eventual failure to face Pacquiao next year may lead to a possible fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley.
Veteran boxing commentator Larry Merchant said that if Mayweather remains unavailable after Pacquiao’s super welterweight fight against Antonio Margarito on November 13, chances are that the Filipino would fight Mosley.
“What if, for example Pacquiao beats Margarito and Mayweather is unavailable for whatever reason, personal, legal problems... Mosley would probably be the best choice for a good fight that Pacquiao could make at the time,” Merchant said in an interview with Dog House Boxing.com.
Mosley is scheduled to face Sergio Mora in a few hours and if he wins over Mora, his chances of facing the world's most popular boxer increases.
Mosley has been chasing Pacquiao since last year when the Filipino boxer pummeled Miguel Cotto to submission in the eleventh round.
Meanwhile, Mosley said Mayweather could have avoided the problems he is facing right now if he agreed to sign up to fight Manny Pacquiao.
"He should have stayed in boxing and taken that fight with Manny Pacquiao," Mosley said in a report posted on NY Daily News.com
"When you're not fighting or getting ready to fight you start to lose focus and you start getting into trouble," he added.
