Pacquiao v. Mosley Championship Boxing

I was recently given the opportunity to photograph the WBO World Welterweight Championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Sugar Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The event took place on May 7th, 2011 and I was joined by my buds Gene Blevins and Pat McWhorter.  The fight went the distance with Pacquiao getting the unanimous decision, retaining his WBO World Welterweight Championship title.  The image gallery includes images from the weigh-in, fight and post-fight press conference.  Much to our surprise, Paris and Nicki Hilton were on hand for the press conference.  Click on the image above to view the entire gallery.
