Remember when Erik Morales unexpectedly made people’s jaws across the continent and the world drop when he manually obliterated the fact that after all is said and done, he will surely get defeated after passing under the knuckles of Marcos Maidana? Instead, he buckled up a right eye shut in order to give a big and spectacular performance after receiving his second KO to Manny Pacquiao.

It’s absolutely true that Morales was no longer the angry bull who aced the super bantamweight and featherweight divisions at the turn of the century. He’s way past his prime, thanks to the fact that he is in his mid thirties, like he’s hours from retirement and ugh, a receding hairline. That’s just usual for an aging boxer to get defeated isn’t it? But will the same thing be true for Sugar Shane Mosley on his fight against Manny Pacquiao on May 7? An 18-year veteran in professional boxing, he showed the world a considerable feat in the turning tides of the sport, his flair, his flawless performance, most of all, his speed. He defied clichés in a world where more than half of his contemporaries retire before they reach their 20th professional fight.

Heavens, the good ‘ol prime boxer isn’t getting any younger guys, look at the time, and his age; with Pacquiao, he will be up against the ultimate pound for pound king of today’s time who would probably pay homage to the gods of victory soon enough as one of the best fighters of all time. What Pacquiao should worry about is the fact that despite his age, Mosley is quite resilient, durable, and really tough, just like a meat jerky. And nobody had ever stopped his tracks.

Enough comparison for both fighters, so the next time you pop the kernels in the microwave or sit on pay-per-view theaters or movie houses, which means betting a dinner or a case of bear for Filipinos, and betting a shirt for other races, ay attention to this: the best fighter wins, one thing is for sure. Yet the gaiety that they bring to cause each race, creed, and color sit together in a day to watch their fight, it’s more than enough for them to be called the heroes of today. Think about it. And while you’re thinking, check out Fight Camp 360, where the ultimate live fight will be witnessed on May 7, online of course. By the way, as the biggest fight of the year, Pacquiao vs Mosley will be dubbed, the UNSTOPPABLE!
