Pacquiao - Mosley Weigh In for Their WBO Title Fight on Saturday, May 7 at MGM Grand

Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley weighed in for their Saturday fight in front of a standing-room only crowd at the MGM Grand Garden arena on Friday, May 6.

The 32-year-old Sarangani Congressman stripped off his red and blue track suit and stepped onto the scale wearing just his shorts and white socks as a roar went up from the mostly Filipino crowd.

"I believe Shane Mosley is a good fighter and he trained his hardest for this fight so I have had to train even harder," said Pacquiao.

Mosley, who arrived wearing a light blue track suit, said he could hear the roar of Pacquiao's supporters back stage.

39-year-old Mosley is hoping to dethrone Pacquiao who is making the second defense of his WBO title he won by beating Miguel Cotto in the same arena in November 2009.

"There are a lot of fans here and I hear a lot of Manny's fans. It will be a big task tomorrow when I fight Manny," said Mosley, who is the only boxer to beat Oscar de la Hoya twice.

Pacquiao tipped the scales at 145 pounds and American Mosley was 147 pounds.
