Video Hype: Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley Hit Las Vegas

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

As we discussed earlier this afternoon, Manny Pacquiao and "Sugar" Shane Mosley both made their first public appearances this week in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand, arriving to a mob of fans and media from around the globe.

Fox Sports has video from the event:

It isn't particularly interesting to listen to these two talk about each other, as neither of them are talking any trash or making any bold predictions or whatever, but I do find it interesting that when you ask Manny Pacquiao about Shane Mosley, what you get in return is pretty much the same as when you ask Shane Mosley about Manny Pacquiao. Their differences are physical -- Mosley is a 5'9" righty, Pacquiao a 5'6" southpaw. But I think in terms of attitude and the way they conduct themselves, Mosley and Pacquiao are very similar fighters and very similar men.

Bad Left Hook's extensive coverage of the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight week will continue on through Saturday, when we will be live at 9pm EDT with full coverage of the entire pay-per-view card.
