It wont be a bad guess to say that it will go the full number of rounds. No one will be knocked out, but Pacquiao might go down at least once, and will have souvenirs on his face, but will be able to get up again to go all the way. Who wins, split decision, this I cant guess....

I think Pacquiao by a knockout, and I don't see him getting knocked down or taking home any souvenirs from this fight. Mosely is passed his prime, and Pacquiao is the best pound for pound fighter in the world today.

I hope another heavyweight like Tyson comes out. Heavyweight fights are so cool. Tyson looked as strong as a Dodge Ram, or an oncoming train.

If I am not wrong, Mosley has never been knocked out. Of course, there is always a first time.

I found it a very disappointing fight. Mosley didn't fight to win; he fought to avoid the knockout. Pacquiaio overmatched Mosley in every round and virtually every second of every round. Even the stat line that will read that Pacquaio was knocked down didn't get any mention in the news accounts because it really was a slip and misruled by the referee.

I am happy for Pacquiao, and he seems someone worth rooting for. He is easily the most compelling boxer today and maybe the most compelling athlete in the world today.

Heavyweight fights really are much more exciting due to the power involved.
