LOS ANGELES (April 21) - The internet is buzzing about Mayweather vs. Mosley and everyone is asking "Who R U Picking?" Several polls have been posted charting the opinions of a diverse cross-section of people who are clicking and picking who they think will be victorious on May 1 when Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Sugar Shane Mosley meet in the ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in a mega-fight which will be produced and distributed live by HBO-Pay-Per-View® beginning at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST.
Fans seem to be split down the middle with some interesting variations between males vs. females, West Coast vs. East Coast and between the top cities in the United States, but one thing the public agrees on is that this evenly matched bout could go either way.
The West Coast seems to be firmly behind Sugar Shane Mosley, while the East Coast seems to back up Floyd Mayweather:
