As Cinco de Mayo approaches many will be making plans to BBQ, meet up with family and enjoy a much-needed day off. I will be doing the same with one much anticipated addition the Mayweather Cotto fight. Even though this isn’t the fight most want with Pacquiao, this fight could result in something even more exciting. For those who watch boxing it’s a known fact that styles make fights, and this could be a clash of styles.
Floyd has speed and skill on his side; he is the ultimate boxer and tactician. His counter punching coupled with amazing head and body movement make him a challenge for anyone. Cotto is a bruiser and a boxer you can hit him and get to him and long as you understand he’s going to hit you back! He likes to make exciting fights with lots of exchanges. With the fight being at 154 Cotto will attempt to use his size and strength to his advantage in hope to slow and hurt Mayweather.
This fight tears me down the middle these are my two favorite fighters and it’s going to be a battle. Cotto is the pride of Puerto Rico(my heritage) and has in my eyes only lost to Manny in his career. I subscribe to the Margarito use weighted gloves theory. Then there’s the issue that Floyd is Floyd he doesn’t lose, take that back he hasn’t ever lost. With an unblemished record he has beaten everyone and everything in front of him. Although it breaks my heart I have to pick Mayweather as he says 42 have tried and 42 have failed.
