As for Cotto, he is hopeful that he can get either De La Hoya or Mayweather to agree to a fight. The most money would indeed be there for a fight with De La Hoya, something not lost on Cotto.
"Yeah, I know that Oscar is still a boxer who sells homes on pay-per-view," Cotto said in ever-improving English.
But a win over Mayweather would mean a win against the man perceived by most experts to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. And that's what Cotto really wants. He's just not sure Mayweather wants any part of him.
"If you ask Floyd for a fight with him, he always has an excuse, you know?" Cotto said. "I'm not attractive for him. I don't represent too much money for him."
and as for mosley and margarito, he let all the relevant WWs at the time to beta each other up before taking on them the same thing he did against cotto. probably the same formula for pac once he decides to fight him.
