Mosley Speaks on Pacquiao, Ishe Smith Speaks on Performance Enhancing Drugs

Update (5:31pm EDT): This is apparently a hot topic now. Shane Mosley tweeted something he probably shouldn't have, which I missed at first, and didn't catch wind of until The Sweet Science's Michael Woods ran this article. For the "other" Manny Pacquiao and steroids discussion, read that take, because it sums up what should be treated as pure fiction very nicely. Twitter reaction toward Mosley has been about what you'd expect.

Shane Mosley has been quiet since Saturday night's post-fight press conference. While the world has addressed his poor performance, and thrown harsh (and realistic) assessments of it out from all angles, the 39-year-old Mosley has said nothing in nearly a week.

This afternoon, he broke his silence via his Twitter account, and summed up the fight very simply:

Mosley earlier called Manny Pacquiao the strongest puncher he'd ever faced, even more so than Vernon Forrest. Forrest beat Mosley twice in 2002 when Mosley was considered to be at the top of his game and was arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world at the moment, up there with Roy Jones Jr.

Another fighter weighed in on that on his Twitter account, just after Mosley posted the above. Ishe Smith, a veteran fighter whose career has taken him all over boxing, had this to say:

And if you're wondering exactly what he meant, your worse suspicions are probably correct:
