After the bad game now comes the blame game. But the trouble with blame game is that you tend to get easily sidetracked and be on the wrong footing to asses a situation due to muddled analysis by some opinionated persons around.
Sugar Shane Mosley must have done something wrong in the light of our disappointments with the outcome of the Pacquiao-Mosley “fight” on account of Mosley’s refusal to engage Manny Pacquiao. And that is undeniable.
In the light of the bigger picture, though, Mosley did just the right thing and why blame a man for refusing to dance at the brink of a steep and deep ravine in a circus competition when he is not in a capacity to do so and when he would get the prize anyhow whichever way.
Of all the people, fans and scribes included, involved in that May 7th dud bout, Mosley appears to be the most intelligent and sensible mammal on the planet that particular day.
Blame Bob Arum, the promotional machinery, Showtime, the media, fight fans and ourselves but not Mosley, for making the “fight” happen, and with great hype and frustration. For doing what he exactly did in the “fight,” or in the “circus dance competition,” Mosley earned my utmost respect. And that gave me more reason to regard him as a great person and a deserving future boxing hall-of-famer. Pacquiao wins but Mosley won!
Some, indeed, are eager to count the stars in the sky by overlooking the fact that the moon is one.
