Manny Pacquiao Beats Shane Mosley, Wins Lopsided Decision

Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines caught "Sugar" Shane Mosley early and chased him the rest of the night. There was not much more he could do against an aging fighter who seemed only to want to survive.
The letter, postmarked March 9, 1954, was the first of four that the late Brockton boxing legend received in a three-month span threatening to kill his wife and daughter if he won a June 17, 1954, bout with Charles, according to files recently released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Here's a five-minute interview with England's Ryan Rhodes, who is looking forward to his crack at Saul Alvarez on June 18. I still love, love, love that fight. Anyone who hasn't seen Rhodes in action should at least watch his 2009 fight with Brit warrior Jamie Moore.
Mosley's biggest moment came when referee Kenny Bayless ruled he knocked Pacquiao down in the 10th round when he didn't hit him.

Pacquiao, bothered by a leg cramp since the fourth round, made a minimum of $20 million for the fight. Mosley was guaranteed $5 million.
