Video: Shane Mosley Told Naazim Richardson to Stop Pacquiao Fight

This Saturday night at 8:45 p.m. EDT, a special 15-minute broadcast of Fight Camp 360: Pacquiao vs Mosley will air prior to Showtime's double-header of Froch vs Johnson and Kessler vs Bouadla.

That might not seem all that interesting on the surface, given that the fight was lousy and we've all moved on a month later, but here's a teaser video that might pique your interest:

In the corner, Shane Mosley clearly asks Naazim Richardson to stop the fight, and Richardson goes into his, "You're cut from a different cloth" spiel, refusing to stop the fight. Mosley responds, "I can't move," before Richardson cuts him off and continues the motivational speaker routine.

I'm not saying Naazim Richardson is a bad trainer or not a compassionate guy or anything like that. He's a terrific trainer. Nobody could have prepared 39-year-old Mosley for Manny Pacquiao. And I think if he felt that Mosley was in any serious danger, he may have stopped the fight. My question is, why not just listen to the old guy with the swollen face who's having trouble catching his breath? Why would you keep the fight going when the fighter wants out? There's no way he saw anything in that fight that told him Mosley could win after the third round, so what was the purpose?
