Weigh-in: Mayweather 146, Mosley 147
By Eric Thomas: At today’s weigh-in, undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. (40-0, 25 KO’s) weighed in at 146 for his fight tomorrow night against Shane Mosley (46-5, 39 KO’s) at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mosley, 38, weighed in a pound heavier at 147. Mayweather is reportedly getting $40 million for the fight. Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions is hoping that the fight sells 4 million pay-per-view buys. However, 2 million is what many people are projecting for the fight. Mosley supposedly has a secret plan that he is going to be using tomorrow night. He’s spotted a flaw in Mayweather’s game and plans on exploiting it. Hopefully, Mosley has a plan ‘B’ and ‘C’ to fall back on if things don’t work out with his original plan.
Mosley has been out of action for the past year trying to line up a big money fight. He had hopes of fighting Andre Berto, but that fight fell through after Berto had to cancel due to an earthquake in Haiti. Before that, Mosley had been looking to try and get a fight with Manny Pacquiao. However, he showed no interest in fighting Mosley.
