Mosley was also considered a 4-1 underdog when he fought Mexican slugger Antonio Margarito in January last year. Some boxing analysts even predicted that Mosley’s career would be over after the fight. However, it was the then-37-year-old Mosley who dominated the match, stopping Margarito in the ninth round.
Hence, it is understandable when Mosley says that there is no way he is going to be victim number 41 for Mayweather. “I’m saying to you guys again, that isn’t going to happen. He’s not going to beat me,” he said, adding that he is going to go for a knockout while admitting that it would not be easy. “I go for a knockout, but I’ll be shocked to see him just laying there on his back like that… happy, but shocked.”
Mosley, however, could be rusty as he has not fought since winning against Margarito due to the cancellation of his January match against Andre Berto. On the other hand, Mayweather is coming off a unanimous decision win against a clearly over-matched and smaller Juan Manuel Marquez. Mayweather defeated Marquez in September, almost two years since retiring in December 2007.
Physically, Mosley is the bigger guy, with a one-inch height and two-inch reach advantage. However, Mayweather is younger at only 33 years old to Mosley’s 38. Record-wise, Mayweather is undefeated in 40 fights with 25 knockouts, while Mosley has a ring record of 46 wins, 5 losses, and 1 draw, with 39 of his wins coming via the short route. Mayweather has the clear advantage in defense, but if there is anything that could make that defense break, it is Mosley’s combination of speed and power.
