You got it all wrong, the fight of the century is in less than 48 hours, that's when the real elite guys are fighting! Cotto is still unproven with a shaky chin and as good as Mosley was at the lighter weights he's abit past it now.

I hope the fight is as good as I expect it to be.I hope I don't see no bull$hit stoppage,or a cut.I hope Smoger gets the nod as a ref,he will let it go and give hurt guys a chance.I wouldn't mind haveing Bayliss for a ref in their either(my favorite ref).

looking forward to great action packed fight where both guys get hurt.Cotto one of my favs today and Mosley won of my favs of several years ago.IMO it's a tossup fight,but I have a feeling Shane pulls the upset here. UD or late stoppage.

Cotto is a beast and a PPV worthy fighter, but seriously.. he's in deep water, and he's gonna drain on Cotto's ring generalmanship and overall greater physical talent.

If he can find a way to beat Mosley (i don't think he will though) i'll give him credit, but who has he really beat so far? I'm a big Zab fan but he just doesn't have the mental game or the chin to test a slugger like Cotto. to be honest i think Cotto should have got him out of there sooner, instead he got wobbled a few times, threw low blows and it almost went to a decision. A guy with a chin as shaky as Cottos and the style he has, it's only a matter of time until he gets counted out and i truly believe Mosley has enough left to do the job, That's why this fight isn't really doing much for me at the moment.

Will this fight surpass Calzaghe - Kessler? Maybe

For sure Mosley and Cotto will be watching, and they will try and put on an even better show next week.

These 2 fights could put boxing back on the map

One more interesting thing I saw regarding Mosleys boxing style, he fights for the crowd, in second Vargas fight he was outboxing him, but only in 6th round he started sitting on his shots, simlar things happened in Collazo fight too, only in later rounds he started to put some pop in those right crosses and counter hooks.
If Mosley gets frustrated in early rounds by Cottos pressure, I think we might see Mosley adding some bricks in those glowes early in the fight.

Thank God it's just 8 more days cause the fight is very important for these two and others to meet soon and surely looking on, regardless of which is the fight of 2007, let alone of the century. The winners of November the 10th and December the 8th meet for a boat load of money in 2008 and that is exactly why they are bubbling out stuff as the days go by - in the mean time, fans go all ova da place and rivalries run high, and I am no exception, but there are BIG fights to get us all distracted. Monday onwards it'll be a different story though.
