Surprisingly, three-division world champion Shane Mosley actually believes that Manny Pacquiao’s “salt water cure” actually worked.

Pacquiao previously made claims that he sough no professional help from medical experts to cure him from the torn rotator cuff on his right shoulder, and instead, relied on “God and swimming in the sea as often” to relieve him from his ailment.

Trainer Freddie Roach, on the other hand, was highly skeptical about it.

“He’s not just going to go in the ocean and God's going to fix it,” said the 53-year old boxing trainer.

But for Mosley, who had his own share of injuries, the said method of treamtment does work.

“Sea salt is definitely a good remedy,” he told FightHub. “Massaging and ultrasound, and I’m sure he got all the best stuff to heal his shoulder, so I’m sure he’s feeling great. But it takes a little time to heal, and they have time if they decide to do another fight. They have time for it to heal.”

Mosley recently went out of retirement to face old foe Ricardo Mayorga in a rematch scheduled for August 29th at the L.A. Forum.
