Shane Mosley: In Defeat Shane Diverts to PEDS Accusation

“There is no defeat, except for those who give up”…

The 39 year old veteran Shane Mosley fought Manny Pacquiao last May 7 to survive. He was never in the ring to win after a devastating left straight floored him in the third round. It was a one sided fight all throughout.

It is human nature to survive and Mosley was only following what his instincts have told him. However, it was unlikely for a former champion to strike with a low blow. No, it didn’t happen while they were in the ring but outside of it. Shane who talked to fighthype.com said “I never fought nobody that hits like that. Never!”… Went into an unusual fight which he thinks he has a chance of winning. On his recent tweet he accused Manny of taking PEDs or performance enhancing drugs, on an article that according to an unnamed Filipino sparring partner of Manny who told a certain “mikejohnson313” about the alleged drug used that started way back in the Ricky Hatton fight.

It wasn’t to my surprise how anyone could make such stories and fabrications in the net. When you are on the top, a lot of people will praise and worship you. However, there will be people who will try to pull you down and discredit all your achievements. However, I was shock to know how Mosley could resort to that. He was always gracious in defeat and has been in the business for years. Everybody knows about the BALCO incident wherein Shane admitted in using steroids. He had been on that cycle for so long with people raising eyebrows whenever he wins a fight. He knows how it feels to be on that spot but the difference between him and Manny is Manny was never been proven guilty.

Manny never had a Filipino sparring partner for years. Basically since there is no prominent Filipino boxer that has the same weight level with Manny who could give him a real workout. And why does a certain “mikejohnson313” who writes in a free article submission site that majors in business and finance (www.financebusinessarticles.com) was given so much importance by Mosley? It’s because in the brink of defeat, Mosley had to cover up his lackluster performance. He had to make an excuse on why he opted to survive and not to win. And when there was no explanation to think of, he looks for something who could justify everything. Anyone could write fabrications and stories in this new technology world however, before jumping to conclusions you also have to look for credibility and substance. Or you’re just one of the thousands of people who believed they won an email lottery only to find out they have given out personal information to hackers.

Mosley thought he could persuade everybody and divert his no-show fight to PEDS accusation. However, everything backfired. The truth is he was just a defeated fighter who was a shell of his once self.

The old man fears defeat because of pride – he fears “failing himself,” – the old man and the sea.
