Former world champion Shane Moseley recently toured Mike Tyson’s podcast with Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns.
Shane, answering Tyson’s question, highlighted the strengths of Floyd Mayweather, to whom he lost in 2010.
“Floyd … He is a fast, technical boxer. I would say it was difficult for me to get to him [в ринге]because he was younger. The fact is that he made a mistake when he believed that I could not shock him with a blow. Because of this, he stagnated, and at one point I caught him. Roger then told him: “What are you doing, do not cut with him! Do not stand still.” It was then that he already began to shift, to box from a distance. But he didn’t expect me to be able to hurt him like that.
And I also want to say that I spied this blow from Ray Leonard. I studied it a lot, and thought that it was with the help of this cross that I could catch Floyd. I tried, as it were, to throw a blow from above and approach the impact distance. So yeah, I borrowed this right hand from Sugar Ray. “
