Saturday’s bout between Mosley and Pacquiao will be for the WBO Welterweight Championship and take place from the MGM Grand live on Pay-Per-View at 9PM ET.

Pacquiao enters the fight as the clear favorite according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog.com, as he has odds of -850 to win while Mosley comes in with odds of +550.

Mosley enters his 55th professional boxing match on Saturday at 39 years of age. “Sugar Shane” appears to be on the downside of his career as he is 2-2-1 in his last five bouts. Currently 46-6-1 with 1 No Contest, Mosley has earned 39 knockout victories, with his last coming in January of 2009, against Antonio Margarito, who was the last man to face Pacquiao. Since that time, Mosley dropped a decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May of 2010, but did earn a knockdown early in the fight. Mosley’s last fight was a draw against Sergio Mora on Sept. 18 of 2010.

Strengths: Mosley has the power that has been a signature of his whole career. Even at 38, he put Mayweather on the ground, he just didn’t have the ability to close the fight out. Also, all six of his losses have been by decision, as he has yet to be knocked out in his career.

Weaknesses: Mosley is lacking in the speed and conditioning that his superior opponents have had, and that will be the real test in this bout with Pacquiao, who is considered to be one of the greatest fighters of all time. Pacquiao will be just as tough of a test as Mayweather, if not tougher. If Mosley can’t keep his motor on high for 12 rounds, it will be a tough fight for him to win.
