Mosley itching for Pacquiao clash

MANILA, Philippines – Welterweight star Shane Mosley has called out Manny Pacquiao following the Filipino’s flawless two-round demolition job of Ricky Hatton.

Interview with ESPN’s Sports Center, Mosley (46-5, 39 KOs) was impressed by Many Pacquiao’s performance, and looking forward to share the ring with Many Pacquiao and him soon...

The Boxer from Pomona, California said, "I thought Manny Pacquiao did an excellent job of putting together … the right hook and that overhand left. I mean, that pretty much rocked Ricky Hatton every time it hit him,"

“Why not [get a shot at Pacquiao]? I’m the welterweight champion of the world, the WBA super champion,” Mosley pleaded his case when he asked if he deserves to get a shot at the current pound-for-pound king.

He said, “I could be the first guy in history to win the pound-for-pound title twice. So let’s do it, let’s bring it on,” --And his motivation in facing Pacquiao?--

I think personally I really want to see Mosley and Pacquiao in the ring...
