Wrap the hands, tighten your straps, grab the bucket, it’s go time.
Undefeated Floyd Mayweather faces Miguel Cotto Saturday for what the media is calling boxing’s biggest showcase of the year.
Fox Sports Net got the pre-fight footage.
“I feel pretty good. And I put trust in Pedro. I trust in every member of my team. I trust, most importantly myself.” “You have to face the top oppositions out there and um this fight had to happen.”
ESPN predicts what techniques Mayweather will use against Cotto.
“Cotto has two choices. Either come forward, and when he does he eats upper cuts. That’s what Floyd’s gonna do, catch him right up the middle. Or he’s going to try and use his legs but he uses his legs and drops his left hand when he goes out. Bang, bang.”
Although Mayweather is the favorite — not so fast tweets boxing analyst Brian Campbell.
“While the odds are surely against Miguel Cotto in this fight, I have a hard time believing he will be stopped.”
Golden Boy Promotions is handling the event, and the CEO says all signs are pointing to Saturday's Mayweather-Cotto clash being a ratings smash.
Here’s the Sweet Science.
“The pre-sales in movie theatres are up 300% from the last couple Mayweather shows, the pre-sales for PPV in Puerto Rico indicate it will be the biggest PPV ever over there. “
Even with the fight’s hype —it lies in the shadow of what could be.
At pre-fight activities — questions resurfaced about Mayweather’s refusal to battle challenger Manny Pacquiao.
Huffington Post got the update.
Mayweather seems obsessed with the idea Pacquiao is juicing. He's not going to change his mind. And, ultimately, that means no Pacquiao fight.
Mayweather is lucky this fight is before June. On June 1st the champ will head to jail for a 90 day domestic violence sentence.
