Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao is set to take on American challenger Shane Mosley for the WBO welterweight title May 7.
I want to win, he wants to win and it will be a fight to the finish, said Mosley about his opponent and eight-times world champion in a press conference Thursday.
Interestingly, both Mosley and Pacquiao share some very honorable sportsmanship traits. Both the fighters, although aggressive in the ring, stay away from thrash talk ahead of the bout.
We both like to keep coming forward in the ring and we like to entertain the people who love boxing. I have to train hard because I don't want to disappoint them, the people who will watch the fight, said 32-year-old Pacquiao, who claims more attention in the world media over his rival due to his multiple faceted public life.
