Mayweather vs Cotto fight is coming near

9 days to go before Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico, will defend his WBA (World Boxing Association) Super Welterweight Title against undefeated American Floyd Mayweather The countdown to the approaching champion Mayweather vs Cotto fight started. The Mayweather vs Cotto fight will be on May 5th at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Making the boxing fans get excited to the much-awaited event.

This will be Floyd Mayweather’s second fight in the Light Middleweight (Super Welterweight) Division. Many dubbed him as a coward by not fighting Miguel during his prime three years ago. Now, Floyd wants to square off with Cotto because he believes the fans badly wanted to see the match happen. Last year, Cotto successfully defeated Antonio Margarito, the first boxer to end Miguel’s undefeated record, after he pummeled him with his vicious attacks to the face of the Mexican ring warrior.

Only a dozen of days left before the thrilling event. There are many discussions in the boxing world on who will win this forthcoming event – will it be the heavier and stronger Cotto or the elusive and accurate puncher Mayweather. The winner of this match will possibly square off against the winner of the Pacquiao-Bradley championship bout but many continue to believe that if Mayweather and Pacquiao win in their respective bout a mega-fight between the two will still not happen because of the issue on the purse split and random blood testing.

Confident Floyd Mayweather, who also has his own countdown to the approaching event, assures his fans of his victory but the current champion believes he will continue to reign as champion. Floyd Mayweather’s trainer, Roger Mayweather, says Pacquiao did not beat Cotto fairly because of the “catch weight”. This is one of the reasons Floyd respects the ability of Cotto because they will settle the score at the weight class where Miguel is comfortable. The vacant WBC Diamond light middleweight title will also be on the line and this will give the two athletes more encouragement to win the battle.
