Shane Mosley would like to punch you full of tickets.
We can’t wait to throw away money at the sports book on Saturday. You’ve got the Kentucky Derby in the afternoon, the Canucks and the Predators at 5 p.m., a possible Capitals-Lightning game in the morning assuming Washington doesn’t get swept tonight, the Yankees and Rangers also at 5 p.m., and we even hear there’s even something going on in basketball. We don’t know. We don’t watch people spend 40 minutes fouling each other for entertainment. For the nightcap, there’s Manny Pacquiao taking on “Sugar” Shane Mosley at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
First, though, Mosley is hosting a series of events around town. On Friday at 4:30 p.m., there’s the Diamond Love Foundation Dinner Gala at Planet Hollywood, with all proceeds going to the foundation, formed to honor Mosley’s nephew, Diamond J. Johnson, and providing money for at-risk youth and providing affordable housing to families and seniors.
At 9 p.m., it’s over to the Hilton for the Knock Out Kings of Comedy Exposure with performances from De Ray, Lavell Crawford and Arie Spears.
Then, after the fight, the Hard Rock Cafe hosts the Official “Sugar” Shane Mosley Celebrity Fight Afterparty from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m., with LL Cool J, Ray J, Kelly Rowland, Macy Gray, Biz Markie and Cedric Ceballos.

Must be 21, and a winner will be announced at noon on Friday. (Note: The package does NOT include tickets to the fight itself.)
