Is Mayweather - Mosley greater than Pacquiao - Clottey?

LA Boxing Examiner | Ricardo Lois

The storyline running through the welterweight division has been a twister during 2010.

First Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather's much anticipated bout falls apart over the administration of an Olympic style blood test.

With negotiations crumbling between Mayweather and Pacquiao's bargaining units, Manny sues Team Mayweather and his co-promoter Golden Boy for defamation.

Then days later with negotiations dead, Pacquiao's lead promoter Top Rank signs a fight between the Filipino and welterweight tough guy Joshusa Clottey.

Floyd Mayweather Junior was left scrambling for a partners with the names of Timothy Bradley, Paulie Malignaggi, and Kermit Cintron being kicked around by the media.

Shane Mosley would be the most logical opponent for Floyd, as fans have been awaiting a clash between the pair for years, but Mosley was was contracted to fight Andre Berto on January 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It seemed as if Top Rank and Manny Pacquiao would have the last laugh.

Then Monday afternoon, Dan Rafael of ESPN reported that Andre Berto would be pulling out of his fight with Mosley due to the tragedy in Haiti.

Berto, a Haitian-American, has been severely effected by the events in Haiti.

"Since the 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday evening, I have been focusing on my family and the Haitian people who are facing an inconceivable battle for survival while still trying to continue to prepare for an opportunity I have dreamt of since childhood," Berto said in a statement.

Now, boxing fans can expect Shane Mosley to jump straight past Berto and into a fight with Floyd Mayweather. All of a sudden Pacquiao vs. Clottey which is sure to be a great action fight, is being challenged by a battle between two of the world's best pound for pound fighters.

Though Pacquiao has rocketed through the welterweight division, and Mayweather is an undefeated boxing genius, many consider Shane Mosley to be the #1 welterweight in the world.

Many fans and experts will argue that Mosley vs. Mayweather is a more meaningful bout, with greater historical significance.

Did fate just aid Mayweather in outdoing Pacquiao?
