Michael Buffer and George Wallace warmed up the several thousand boxing fans in attendance at today's weigh at at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for tomorrow night's welterweight super fight between Sugar Shane Mosley and Floyd Money Mayweather.
Several notable fighters were on hand including the legendary Tommy Hearns, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Joe Calzaghe, and Sergio Mora.
When George Wallace asked Michael Buffer who he liked in the fight, he replied, 'I like boxing, baby. I wanna see a rematch, cause they get a payday and so do I.' Maybe we'll start calling him Michael Money Buffer.
First out to the scale was reigning welterweight champion Mosley, looking fresh, relaxed, and focused. He came in right on the button at 147, looking to be in spectacular condition.
Next up was Floyd, who looked slightly drawn in the face, was licking his lips as if he was thirsty, and who had a good sweat going. He came in 1 pound under the limit at 146.
The bad blood seems to continue as both fighters didn't hesitate to provided photographic moments as they faced off and jawed away at each other.
The crowd in attendance, which filled a quarter of the arena, seemed to be fairly evenly split in their support of each fighter. The anticipation is thick, with the chatter going around the casino today, and conversations abound about predictions.
Who R U Picking? I'm sticking with Floyd by decision.
