Knuckle Up: Hip-Hop Fight Night

Ready for fight night? Manny Pacquiao and Sugar Shane Mosley will throw on the gloves live from Las Vegas on Saturday night. In fact, Rick Ross will reportedly lead Pacquiao out to the ring. We guess Rozay choosing to lead him out to “Pacman” is a safe bet. As for the fight itself, we hope it’s great, but have our doubts. Pacquiao is in his prime, while Mosley, although a seasoned veteran, is well past his prime. That got us thinking about the best fights in hip-hop history. There’s definitely several, all providing varying degrees of entertainment. So, throw the gloves on, have your cut-men ready in your corner and ring the bell. Ding! —Mark Lelinwalla
