MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO BOUT NOT “HAPPENING”
San Francisco, CA- It became obvious to me when Canelo Alvarez decided to dance without Miguel Cotto, that the only way Cotto would allow this payday to get away was that he instead would land a rematch with Floyd Mayweather for Miguel’s lineal middleweight (160 lbs.) title. This has nothing to do with “fear” on either man’s part, rather it’s about dollars and sense. Oh, let me say it again, there will be NO Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight in May period.
EXPLAINING THE “SENSE”
Although I admire Puerto Rico’s Cotto, a fighter that at 140 & 147 lbs. fought so relaxed (under fire) he looked like he had burnt a blunt in the dressing room. But at 160 Cotto, isn’t likely to be as mellow as he worries with family and friends about his health. A family guy unlike Peter Griffin, Cotto said a couple of years ago that he wasn’t inclined to get in any “life or death” war, citing family concerns. Like TV’s Mr. Griffin, Floyd isn’t going to hurt or knock him out.
COTTO REMATCH FROM FLOYD’S PERSPECTIVE
As for Floyd’s sense of matters, Cotto is slow, semi-predictable and not likley to knock him out. Having had 12 rounds to figure the Puerto Rican out already, this fight has all the indications of being a carbon copy of Mayweather-Marcos Maidana II which registered a solid 2 of 10 on the entertainment scale. Mayweather will keep this fight in the center of the ring and win going away.
