    i had forrest winning by like 5 points...

    i'm half in the piss tank... regardless...

    mosely's quick draw McGraw style... the few seconds of flash and dash in each round style didn't win me over....

    round after round forrest put in work... the better of the 2...

    forrest's leading/snapping jab... counter left to the head... and follow up left to the body... and range finding/killer right won the fight for vernon IMO...

    115-113 Forrest.

    WTF kind of strategy was Mosely using? Jab then fall into a clinch.....jab then fall into a clinch.....late in the fight he had to know he was losing and he didn't really do shit to try and change things.

    100% horseshit fight.

    Neither man deserved to win.

    Talk about a mismatch. Forrest would KO him early. Rounds 2-4.

    116-112 Forrest.

    Once again SKILLS defeated TALENT.

    Sadly enough, I think that Mosley KNEW he could not defeat Forrest with SKILLS so he tried his best and hoped for the best (TALENTED fighters always HOPE for the judges to give them the fight over SKILLFULL fighters).

    I wish both the best.

    Two good guys...indeed.

    i thought the fight was a draw. I had it 6-6 rather than 5-5-2 that merchant had. I expected more combination punching from mosley and a more effective jab. Honestly, tho, i thought mosley was going to get the decision after the fight. it was close (dull) and could have swung mosley's direction imo.

    SSM going up to 154?

    He looked too small for 147??.

    Forrest is sickening to watch. Big clumsy 6-foot counter puncher.

    Nothing is worse then 2 counterpunches.

    I know this may seem harsh, but....

    Shane Mosley = Flash in the pan

    I NEVER wanna hear his ass mentioned along side Robinsion, and Leonard again!

    Thus the "Stoned" Smilie.

    It is the Only Fight left for Forrest at 147, but it Won't Happen due to Network Conflict.

    Although I would like to see How the Cocky Mayorga deals with Defeat!

    I agree....But He'll Move up for the Money.

    And He'll be even Less Effective there in My Opinion.

    I Wouldn't say that, it's just that Forrest poses Too Much of a Problem for Him.

    I think if Forrest Moves Up For the Money(And How can You Blame Him)Mosely is Better than every Other 147 lber in the Game.

    But Mosely will Move Up as Well for the Money(And How can You Blame Him).

    I'd like to see Mosely-Mayorga just for the Styles....but there are Too Many Reasons Why That Fight Won't Happen.

    After watching that painfully boring snoozer of a fight you wonder why Gatti/Ward will get millions for their fight..

    NOBODY wants the watch the shit that these 2 guys showed tonight.

    Anybody who thinks Ward/Gatti is over paid can kiss my ass.

    The good news is that after seeing the Mosley/Forrest fight the Butterbean/ Holmes fight is looking better.

    how can you say this dude???

    forrest committede to his plan... keep the fight on the outside... snap the jab... counter with the left... and let him him fear the right by asserting it here and there...

    the only thing mosely did different was that he got his right a little more refined... and watched stevie johnston tapes and learned better foot work...

    the inside work was pretty much minimal... shane didn't really bully vernon... vernon didn't really bully shane... and the outside work was by far vernon...

    vernon was the champ... shane was the challenger... shane had to take the fight to forrest...

    but... i still like shane and give him full credit for taking the rematch....

    Sorry dawg, but the facts are plain. Shane's ENTIRE reputation was built on a narrow win over the Golden Girl, on a night Oscar fought the wrong fight. Other than that, he's done nothing but beat bums. When he finally faced a tall rangy guy who actually BOXED him, and took away his speed, he lost twice. He's no Sugar. Leonard would have boxed circles around Forrest, and DLH, and Robinsion would have murdered them.

    So once again I say.... Shane Mosley = Flash in the pan.
