    Yeah they made Mosely agree to that upfront. They also made Mosley sign an instant rematch clause in case he wins.

    Mosley's strong and skillful but Mayweather has unbelieveable defensive skills, I'm suprised Mayweather took this fight as i think Mosley is the most dangerous opposition he could currently face.

    I guess we'll get to finally see if Maywaether is really as good as he thinks he is.
    Let's face it, Mosley is the clear underdog. As crappy as his personnality his, I don't see how Money May could possibly lose. He's never been clearly knocked down in his whole career (besides an off balance slip) and I don't see anybody winning on point against him.

    sadly it will soon be 41-0 for our favorite rap cliche :icon_sad:

    I am not watching this one, I don't feel like going out tonight because I am not in a good mood..
    But I hope Mosley wins..I will have to give the edge to Mayweather though.

    You really are wrong about everything, aren't you?

    Boxing's biggest box office draw remained undefeated in 41 fights

    Dude wouldn't have gotten more than $22 million for a single fight if he wasn't selling shitloads of tickets and PPV.

    So, no one wants to comment on the fight?

    Spoiler:
    Mayweather looked very dominant, and was actually a lot more offensive than defensive minded than many people thought he would be. After that 2nd round, it looked like Mosley might have found his timing, but Floyd adjusted pretty well to that and put on a clinic. Really, Floyd showed he can keep his composure if he gets hit pretty well. Hopefully we'll see him face Pacman now. As for Mosley, while some people will say he's done and he's too old, in all honesty he just lost to probably the best welterweight in the world, so I wouldn't say he should retire immediately if he feels he can still fight.

    Mayweather looked fantastic last night. I've never seen him rocked like he was in round 2 but talk about poise and confidence, he absolutely dominated the rest of the fight. I was rooting for Mosley but he was just about helpless out there.

    Mosley started with a very educated jab but he couldn't keep it up. The shorter man actually had the better jab by the end of the night. Mosley seemed like his game plan fell apart after he landed those big right hands in the second.

    Floyd was rocking him with a sharp right hand and Mosley was looking very tentative. Floyd was the aggressor for most of the fight, I did not expect that.

    Props to Floyd on that O'Jays intro, that was awesome.

    If they don't make Pacquiao-Mayweather happen I'm going to crap myself in protest.

    Mayweather was surprisingly aggressive. His speed is pretty incredible.

    Its kinda sad but one of the best possible displays of boxing in the world was painfully boring. 12 3 minute rounds where round 12 and round 3 are indistinguishable is not that entertaining.

    With speed and accuracy like that, if he could sprawl, I think Mayweather would be competitive in MMA a la Machida.
