Mayweather, 38-0 (24 KOs), is the reigning world and Ring Magazine welterweight champion. Considered the pound-for-pound best in the sport today, he expects a Mosley victory
"I see it as an easy fight for Shane and I predict an early KO," Mayweather predicted.
Hatton, 43-0 (31 KOs), a multi-division champion and universally recognized world junior welterweight champion, agreed with his upcoming opponent.
"I think Shane Mosley will win because he will cause Cotto problems with his speed and movement. Last time out, Cotto looked strong but didn't carry the same finesse at welterweight as in previous fights. He looked a little crude against Judah. Cotto will need more finesse against Mosley."
