Manny Pacquiao Fighting Two Opponents on May 7
We are two days away from the most awaited fight of the year in boxing - the Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley WBO Welterweight rumble. Both fighters have been training rigorously up to this day preparing for a big fight on Saturday, May 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
On a recent interview with Manny Pacquiao by Chico Trinidad, Pacquiao announced that he will be wearing yellow gloves that would represent unity among his country, the Philippines, to end poverty. On Saturday, he will be battling Mosley and poverty. This will be the first time you will be seeing yellow gloves in the ring as opposed to the standard blue and red gloves boxers use in the ring.
Manny Pacquiao never underestimated Shane Mosley saying "He is a good fighter. He is strong, he throws a lot of punches and he moves fast. He is the kind of fighter you can't under-estimate."
