You don’t have to be a master of the ring to know the key to beating Shane Mosley.
Trainer Freddie Roach said Friday that Manny Pacquiao will resort to precision punching and movement when the Filipino pound-for-pound king meets Mosley on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"The key (to a victory) is to outbox Shane Mosley," said Roach, who will train Pacquiao for two days in Metro Manila before returning to Baguio Sunday afternoon.
Team Pacquiao left its high-altitude training camp in the Pines City so Pacquiao can grace the annual Elorde Boxing Awards.
While in town, Pacquiao will work out at the Elorde Gym in Sucat Road, Parañaque..
Roach said Mosley, despite him being a crafty fighter as well, can be outboxed, as shown by what Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto did to him.
Mayweather weathered an early storm and dominated Mosley en route to a lopsided decision in May last year, while Cotto scored a unanimous but close decision win over him in November 2007.
Roach said Mosley’s strength surfaces whenever he is up against a fighter who comes at him and he knows very well not to fall into that trap.
While Pacquiao is the type of guy who thrives in exchanging power blows, Roach said he will tweak his fighter’s style a little bit to suit their gameplan.
Sparring sessions will begin on Tuesday, according to Roach.
