Sugar Dreams of Meeting Obama and Play Some Hoops with the President

Approximately 50 members of the press whiled away several hours on Tuesday at the high-end mountainous training and boot camp of three-division world champion Sugar Shane Mosley, although transportation to and from Las Vegas was courtesy of Top Rank, Inc.

Come the 7th of May, 2011 Saturday, the Pomona California native (46-6-1, 39 KOs)by the name of Mosley will fight knuckle-to-knuckle with Filipino World Boxing Organization welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2. 38 KOs), a native of General Santos City in the Philippines. They will meet face-to-face for the umpteenth time in the main event of the night of a blockbuster event which will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The promoters of the fight are namely Top Rank, in partnership with MP Promotions, Sugar Shane Mosley Promotions, Tecate, and MGM Grand. For those who are so anxious and giddy as of the moment, say no more as the Pacquiao vs Mosley tilt will be produced and distributes live of course by SHOWTIME PPV.

Mosley fans and supporters out there, hold your horses, as Sugar said on Tuesday:

“My energy is great, at a very high level. I have a lot of power in both hands; I know Pacquiao will go right to the attack which is a great advantage for me.” The 39-year old champion may be way past his prime in the world of boxing but he assures his fans and the people who look up to him that he is certain that this fight will be a difficult one, no matter how nutty people see it as it is. He is alert that the Filipino boxer may shower him with punches from a myriad of angles, but pure power only he can exude will take care of everything. Man this guy’s really certain that he can land punches on Pacquiao, and speaking of punches, those little dears would be good, hard, and knockout-inducing.

With his chief trainer Naazim Richardson, Mosley is confident that the trainer is one of his biggest assets and advantage, as Richardson never for once in his life lost a fight against a Top Rank victor.

Sugar Shane Mosley may be a native of the United States, but admits that he hasn’t even met President Barack Obama face-to-face. “I know President Obama met Pacquiao. I can deal with that, no hard feelings. President Obama will always be my man. I will always vote for him. Someday, I hope to meet the President and maybe play a little basketball”. He states with a smile. That only proves that however sturdy a fighter Mosley is, he still is a child at heart; marveling at little things like basketball with the most powerful man on the planet as of today. Well, hold it right there, fans of both sides, before you start ripping put each other’s eyes and pull each other’s hairs, ponder on the fact quietly, like rational adults do, that the two fighters does it for passion. No grudges, they’re bigger than that. I know for a fact that Sugar Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao are both good sports inside the ring and out.
