Well, looks as if the Mosley vs Margarito fight that was tentatively scheduled for Jan 24th is off as Margarito’s camp turned down the deal which would’ve made Margarito $2 Million (He got about 1.3 Million in Cotto fight). In turn, Golden Boy now are furious at the last min decision on part of Marg’s camp who sent a “note” to Top Rank turning down the fight saying they don’t want to fight the guy Cotto already beat (regardless of Margarito telling the press he was going to kill Mosley). There’s no word yet as to who Margarito’s next opponent will be though he has a rematch with Cotto in June if Cotto gets passed Michael Jennings for the Vacant WBO Welterweight title.
So where does this leave Mosley? A possible fight on the same date against rising star and current WBC champ Andre Berto. This fight has actually been floating around the net but was to take place sometime in March or April. I still believe Mosley can win this fight because I still see minor flaws in Berto’s defense, but nonetheless I definitely would want to see it.
