Video Hype: Shane Mosley "Already Hyped" for Manny Pacquiao

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's a video from Shane Mosley called "Sugartime" which at glance to the title I expected to be some kind of training montage set to a funky jam, a modern day "Eye of the Tiger" with Rocky running in the mountains and all of this, but instead is kind of a melodramatic -- in a good way -- two-minute hype piece with comments from Mosley, Naazim Richardson, business partner JoJo Ryder, and Antonio Leonard of Sugar Shane Mosley Promotions.

Obviously Antonio Leonard is the most entertaining of the group (I highly recommend constantly clicking on the 1:07 mark to watch and hear him say "Cotto" over and over). Most intriguing is Leonard noting that Antonio Margarito was No. 1 pound-for-pound after beating Miguel Cotto, which is at the very, very least highly debatable or incredibly wrong, depending on how nice you want to be. As always, I find Naazim Richardson to be the most genuinely compelling person of all, but then Naazim could probably convince me that the Chicago Blackhawks are still in the playoffs if he told me so a few times.
