Shane Mosley has the stronger drive to win.
He is up to turn a tsunami like waves against him. Having a monstrous pile of people “belittlement” on his abilities to contend with and millions to gain (and gain even more) with almost nothing to lose but his life, Mosley is expected to approach the fight between him and Manny Pacquiao in a “do or die” beastly disposition.
Hence the Pacman cannot afford to be less hungry for a knockout win and be mentally complacent climbing up the canvass on May 7 however dense he stretched himself in training to condition his body and whatever affirmations his team would tell him.
Expect Sugar Shane on fight night to come at his strongest will ever to dominate and force the issue against Pacquiao inside the first five rounds because Mosley himself is concerned that after round five, he would have nothing left in his “reservoir” to turn the tide and make it possible not to suffer a knockout defeat at the hands of a great boxer with the best combination of crushing power and speed in the sport’s annals.
The people can only predict a sensational victory but only for one who is completely prepared and inspired enough, one who does it right even in his sub-conscious mind, dreaming about the outcome of the fight to be having a glorious end in his favor, to bow low and lift up a Name.
But as for Shane, it would be sweetest for him if he can weather the “firestorm” assaults coming from Manny’s faith-filled arsenal of blinding skills and overpowering counter attacks in response to Mosley’s early rounds aggressiveness and for Mosley to avoid a Hatton-like fall and remain on his toes until the last whisk of air he can puff away to survive the final round on shaky knees.
For the world to witness, that is, if Pacquiao’s “prayer” is heard again.
