Shane Mosley Over Manny Pacquiao: Biggest Upset in Boxing History
DETROIT -- The adviser of three-division, five-time champion, Shane Mosley, on Friday expressed extreme confidence in the 39-year-old former titlist's ability to defeat southpaw eight-division king and WBC junior middleweight (154 pounds) belt-holder, Manny Pacquiao, when the latter defends his WBO welterweight (147 pounds) belt against Mosley on May 7 in a Showtime pay per view televised bout from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Prince is also the adviser of southpaw WBC junior welterweight (140 pounds) champion, Devon Alexander (21-0, 13 knockouts), who will face WBO counter part Tim Bradley (26-0, 11 KOs) in Saturday night's HBO televised clash at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich.
Prince was on hand at Friday's Alexander-Bradley weigh-in at the Silverdome, where he shed his thoughts on Pacquiao-Mosley.
"I think that Shane's chances are great," said Prince. "Not only is he going to win that fight, but it's going to be the biggest upset in the history of boxing."
During recent interviews with FanHouse, Mosley (46-6-1, 39 knockouts) has displayed similar a belief that his combination of speed and power might just be something that the 32-year-old Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) has not yet seen.

"Shane Mosley is supposed to be confident," said Prince. "If he wasn't, then I wouldn't be going into the ring with him. But not only is he confident, but we're going to win that fight."
