This commentary goes against popular opinion and I think the analysis is spot-on.
On May 5th, Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather will meet in the ring, for what one hopes will be a great boxing match up. Leaving myself in distraught though, for I am a big fan of both these fighters.
Many have been waiting for Pacquiao and Mayweather to settle the pound for pound best rivalry, for years now, but the two seem to get nowhere closer to this fan dream bout. Pacquiao and Mayweather wasn’t going to happen, since Pacquiao’s last fight with long time rival Juan Manuel Marquez. As good as Marquez was at counterpunching and defense in that fight, Mayweather is far greater at those skills, and is naturally a larger fighter than the Pacman. Which Bob Arum of Top Rank Promotions (Pacquiao’s promoter) seem to have realized. After that fight, Arum was obviously avoiding the possible fight with Mayweather, and was focusing on other opponents.
