Boobs and Boxing Tonight
While I believe that these two should be a part of every day, tonight has its share of headliners. First up, the welterweight battle between "Sugar" Shane Mosley and "Ferocious" Fernando Vargas in Las Vegas. It should be a great fight, a last chance for both men to make it back to the mega-fights, big paydays and stardom. Each has had his taste of the glory, and each was considered a potential superstar, but ran into a better fighter. For Vargas, it was Felix Trinidad. For Mosley, it was Vernon Forrest. It's actually kinda hard to believe how little impact they had on the fight game in the long run, as both seemed like such rising stars, potential all-time greats just a few short years ago. In boxing though, that's a lifetime.
It looks like Oscar de la Hoya, a man who has fought both men, has picked Mosley to win tonight, according to Dan Rafael. I agree, as I think that Mosley will fight with the desperation that he has lacked in his losses. It should be a good fight, a near-given when Vargas steps in the ring.
If you are in Philly, you can get your busty thoughts for the weekend by heading to Club Oasis for Tera Patrick's appearance. She is dancing twice tonight, at 10:30 and 11:30, giving you two chances to confirm there is a G-d. Her official site is here and you can check out Club Oasis here.
