"Sources say he's stepped up to agree to fight Sugar Shane Mosley on May 1."
"Although not officially confirmed, the word is that the deal just needs to be signed."
May 1st is the same night as UFC 113 in Montreal.
Sounds like the Pac man super fight will not be happening but once again boxing decides to put on a star powered fight the same night as UFC 113. This is kind of interesting to see how the UFC will fair against boxing, I don't believe the UFC will win the war this time but if this fight does happen the UFC will have the Internet sensation Kimbo in their corner. Will Kimbo be enough to battle for PPV ratings against boxing superstars, will it matter either way, will Kimbo and the super fight between Rua and Machida steal the majority of PPV from boxing or will boxing take away many PPV draws from the UFC?
Boxing has a larger potential PPV audience to begin with and I'm sure will beat any PPV numbers the UFC can at this point, but I believe the MMA numbers will be effected little by this fight as only a small percentage of MMA fans are boxing fans, those that are will choose a Rua vs. Machida fight especially over Mosley instead of Pac Man vs Mayweather, and then of coarse you have Kimbo added on top of it all, maybe not every MMA fans favorite fighter but he is a big draw added to a great card.
