Boxing: ‘Pacquiao win would be career best’

LAS VEGAS: Boxing underdog Shane Mosley feels a victory over WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on Saturday would be his biggest ever despite a glittering career that includes world titles in three weight classes.

“That would be the best victory at this time,” Mosley told reporters at the MGM Grand, the site of Saturday’s fight. “If I fight Pacquiao and beat him, there will probably have to be another one, because people won’t believe it.” Mosley has yet to be knocked out during his professional career, but his comment was a clear admission that despite a record of 46-6-1 with 39 knockouts, he will be a heavy underdog against the Filipino Pacquiao.
