Shaquille O’Neal found out that bigger isn’t always better when it comes to boxing.
On Tuesday’s episode of Shaq Vs., O’Neal went toe-to-toe with “Sugar” Shane Mosley in an exhibition boxing match.
Shaq trained for the fight with Manny Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, but Mosley’s skill proved too much for the big man to overcome. After five rounds in the ring, the 5-foot-8 Mosley defeated the 7-foot-1 Celtics center in a close but unanimous decision.
Before the bout, the always confident Shaq promised to walk around Caesar’s Palace in a pink bikini if he lost. Much to the delight of hotel guests, he kept his word.
NESN.com will showcase one Moment of Shaq every day until the Celtics open the season against the Heat on Oct. 26 at the TD Garden.
