After last night's Manny Pacquiao boxing victory over "Sugar" Shane Mosley, Slaughterhouse's Royce Da 5'9 and Joe Budden have shared their reactions and what the future holds for Pac Man.
While giving props to Pacquiao for the win, Royce questioned if the boxing champion could defeat undefeated fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
"Dear Shane.. A N*gga that wins daily is about to court you're newly famous girlfriend.. Don't look at me I don't want her...," Royce tweeted Sunday (May 8).
"Lemme ask a question.. Be honest (You won't) you really think PacMan can beat Floyd after that performance?" (Royce Da 5'9's Twitter)
Budden promised to lay off boxing until Pacquiao and Mayweather finally face off.
"Any day u wanna STOP sapping him Mosley, any day now... Smh," he tweeted Sunday (May 6).
"I'm off boxing until Mayweather & PAC fight... Word." (Joe Budden's Twitter)
Last night's fight took place in Mayweather's hometown Las Vegas, Nevada.
Even with 6-to-1 odds favoring Manny Pacquiao, fans had been optimistically reminded that styles make fights. Unfortunately, not this one. Actually, it would be more accurate to note that Shane Mosley, now almost 40, doesn't have much style left. Or speed. Or power. Or, most disappointingly, the willingness to engage. "I wasn't going to take risks," said Mosley, moments after losing a unanimous and lopsided decision. (Fox Sports)
Last May, Mayweather defeated Sugar Shane to earn his 41st consecutive boxing match.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. put on a virtuoso display of boxing skill in an unanimous decision over Sugar Shane Mosley on Saturday night, keeping his perfect record intact. Mayweather gave a masterful effort in his most dangerous fight in several years against the 38-year-old Mosley, who put Mayweather on his heels with several rocking punches in the second round. Mayweather regained his composure and thoroughly outboxed the veteran champion. Mosley didn't have the power or precision to follow up his dynamic second round, losing in his first fight since stopping Antonio Margarito in January 2009. (USA Today)
