Two of the best pound for pound fighters in the world have finally agreed to settle their differences in the ring
announced via their Twitter
page that Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr
and "Sugar" Shane Mosley
will fight May 1.
This has all the makings of a great bout. Shane is quick enough to give Floyd problems and packs a strong enough punch to hurt him if he makes a mistake on defense.

Both fighters are coming off of impressive wins. Floyd easily defeated Juan Manuel Marquez
by unanimous decision last September.
While Mosely totally destroyed Antonio Margarito
last January. Knocking him out in the 9th round to claim the WBA Championship
The fight will be shown on HBO PPV. Expect it to do brisk sales both at the gate and home buys.
