The key in this fight for Mosley is to be aggressive as Mayweather likes to keep his distance and not put himself in danger.

If Mosley falls behind early he has to put himself in a dangerous spot in order to possibly earn a knockout.

Look for this bout to be a typical Mayweather fight where he establishes superiority early with his speed and then out-points Mosley for 12 rounds en route to a decision victory.
