Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia would have been one of those events that could have broken records. However, the former 3-division champion Shane Mosley Jr. believes the now-confirmed Ryan vs. Rolly Romero fight wouldn’t be far behind. The same is further backed by none other than Floyd Mayweather, injecting a dose of drama and excitement among fans.

Yesterday, in an unexpected twist of faith, ‘Money’ Mayweather turned to Instagram, sharing the poster for the Romero-Garcia fight. Obviously, it didn’t sit well with Oscar De La Hoya, but many would have seen it coming since Floyd and Garcia have been spotted together on numerous occasions. However, people didn’t expect Shane Mosley Jr. to advocate for the fight’s supremacy today in the comment section of a post from Ellie Seckback.

Yesterday, Seckback posted a clip on his Instagram account, sharing Floyd’s post regarding the Gacia-Romero fight and a clip of Romero interacting with the fans. Soon, Mosley Jr. found the post, leaving a comment that read, “Everybody wants to see this one!” However, when a couple of fans said otherwise, the 21-4 boxer went into detail about why he thinks Ryan vs. Romero is better.

“In this fight, there is a high likelihood of either of these guys knocking each other out. In the fight between [Devin] Haney and Ryan Garcia, there’s a high likelihood of it going to distance,” wrote Mosley Jr. Citing that as the reason, Mosley Jr. advocated for the Ryan-Romero fight being more exciting. “Sometimes the highest profile fight doesn’t make the most exciting fight. This fight is the more exciting fight right now, in my opinion,” said Mosley Jr. While Mosley Jr. has an interesting angle about the fight being better than if Haney was involved, what did Foyd say about the fight?

After being spotted together in the streets of Las Vegas, Garcia surprisingly backed out of a fight against Devin Haney. It left many wondering – is this the Mayweather effect?

One take at a time

The first time boxing captured my attention, it was because of a line I heard in the film 'Rocky Balboa', a film surrounding boxing. The line went like this, "But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.
