Default Mayweather v Cotto

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

This fight is going to be huge, May 5th.

With the fight at 154lb's, anyone reckon Cotto can spring an upset? I remember back in 2007/08 people were talking Cotto to beat Floyd back then.

I reckon this is Floyd's most even money fight in many years.

Floyd wins but Cotto will give him more problems that ODLH did. Left hook to the body will be a key punch.

Floyd will come in on fight night at about 152 or so... Cotto 160-165 potentially

I agree. Cotto has the ability to hurt Floyd on the inside and he should have a size advantage on fight night.

It's good to see Floyd step up to 154lbs. This is the best fight for him outside a Pacquiao fight.

Great fight for both, a win against cotto at junior middle is a huge task for anybody. I would have been happy with PBF vs Canelo also, young gun against ring legend.

So that leaves PAC vs brad, another fan friendly fight. I think desert storm will give him problems, both with presure and his huge head

Great news. Styles make fights & these two will blend beautifully. Cotto will give Floyd all he can handle at 154lbs. Can't wait for this one. Pac v Bradley will probably happen now which I also think style wise will be a good fight.

it will be massive in north and south america at least.

if cotto was a bigmouth too, i could just imagine the air time the bout would get in the lead up to it.

I'll be fervently rooting for Miguel in this one...He has as good as chance as anyone at 147-154 of beating Floyd (apart from Pac).

It's a good fight to look forward to but it's not the one that NEEDS to happen.

Decent fight given the circumstances surrounding the pac/ floyd pickle.

What makes it palatable is the fact that floyd is fighting him at cotto's true weight class-154. Princess pacquiao's team were vying for a cotto rematch but miguel told them to shove it when they said 147 or nothing.

Would have loved thisfight to be at the garden in NY. But he who pays the piper calls the tune.

Saul alvarez on the undercard too. Mosleys name is popping up as a likely opponent.

I think this will be the boil over of the year. Diaz, now working Cotto's corner has done some great things to Cotto's gameplan & I'm expecting a very competitive fight here. Style wise they mesh well Floyd & Cotto for an exciting fight. I'll say it now Cotto S/D win in a FOTY candidate.
