This is interesting. I think that Mosely-Judah makes a lot more sense boxing wise. Both are comming off losses to Miguel Cotto and were both delivered their 5th loss by the Puerto Rican bad-boy. What would be most interesting to see though is weight they will fight at. Mosely said that he wanted to stay at 147, but Judah's last fight was at 154 where he won the IBC title. See, the Welterweight division is the hottest out now, but the Super welterweight division is where Oscar De La Hoya may be at his 3rd fight of the year, and possibly his career. Both these guys, along with every other fighter is going to want to be the guy to face ODLH, so we shall see what transpires.

No doubt, every boxing website has brought that up, this is the first of me hearing about judah/mosley. They're behind. Although mosley vs judah would be good, mosley vs mayorga will be even better.

I think it'll be Mosely vs Mayorga also but I'd love to see Mosely Judah. I would have to go with Mosely with a ko late

Without a doubt I'd rather see Mosely vs Zab and I pick Mosely to win both fights.

Actually...they're ahead. Mosley-Mayorga was brought up about a week back:

SHANE MOSLEY TO RETURN IN MAY

Initially, they were in negotiations with Mayorga for a May 15th date...I believe Steve Kim reported it as well.

Currently, they've now also entered into negotiations with Judah and the date has been pushed back to May 31st.

As far as I know, Mayorga and Judah are the only two names in contention. From what I hear, they're actually leaning more towards Judah simply because Mayorga wants a bigger share of the purse so a fight with Judah would net more money for Mosley. I also hear that they may doing the fight on PPV since Oscar is fighting for free that month.

So the questions is, what fight would you rather pay for? Mosley-Judah or Mosley-Mayorga?

Those should both be freebies. I couldn't see either one beating 200,000 buys. Hell, Mayorga-Vargas only did 150,000, although they originally reported it to be 300K. But I guess if Roy Jones can do a PPV and sell 24,000 then anything is possible. Oh, and little Chavez Jr keeps being in lame ass PPV's as well.

I agree...this trend of putting all of these fights on PPV is ridiculous. Do you remember when they put Barrera's fight against Mzonke Fana on PPV? I think it did like 50K-70K buys. Pathetic. There should be some type of rule that states if you lost your last fight, you can't headline a PPV. LOL.

There's no way Mosely - Judah or Mosely Mayorga should be on PPV.

Yeah I agree. Also, if your PPV doesn't sell at least 100K you should be forced to fight on ESPN or Versus in your next fight.
