    I'd say Mayweather, definitely wouldn't have thought it will be an easy night though, specially given it's at Cotto's weight 154, unlike when Pac made him drain down to 147

    Ring walk for the Mayweather fight will be about half 3 -4 am I think with it being in Vagas, I'd tune in earlier though to see Shane Mosley and Canelo on the undercard, Jessie Vargas a good up and coming fighter from the Mayweather gym also fighting against Steve Forbes prior to that as well, can't wait!

    It's going to be a lot closer than people think, Floyd hasn't got the youthful legs he once did, his footwork has diminished and he has lost a lot of speed over the years (that pep in his step is gone), that being said he still works off amazing angles and has great power for the division, and Cotto isn't exactly what you'd call fast.
    Cotto has to take this one to the ropes and fight ugly, he's got more than enough power to lay Floyd out, but whether he's fast enough to do we'll have to wait and see, his coach seems to be pretty convinced he has the blueprint to beat Floyd, but I dunno, will be a fun fight.

    Oh Rest In Peace Sugar Shane's career, definitely the last nail in the coffin. I still put a tenner on the old dog because the odd are so good :P

    Its gonna be a very close fight I agree, I strongly believe all the pressure is on Mayweather as he still has the 0 on his record, going up a weight class division and weighing in 4lbs lighter, its his second fight after coming out of retirement and also he is getting older.

    This fight has the potential to end Mayweather's career. When you've been undefeated for as long as Mayweather has with an ego as big as he has, a loss can destroy you.

    That being said, Mayweather is probably gonna win

    Was going to put £10 on Mayweather with Paddy Power but I'd only mke a gain of £1.25 so I didn't bother.

    Cotto isn't going to beat Mayweather. He got demolished by Pacquiao who was of a smaller build (ok not that small but Cotto had the size advantage). If anyone is going to beat Mayweather it will be Pacquiao.

    Pacquiao fought Cotto at a catch weight of 147 lbs ( a weight in which cotto is drained at) so he was notably weaker in that fight, where as in this fight, Floyd is letting him fight at his natural weight which is 7 lbs more at 154, which is a notable amount which Cotto will feel a hell of a lot more comfortable at, so I wouldn't look at that fight to compare it with, plus Pacquaio generally struggles with counter punchers which is what Mayweather is, I genuinely think this fight will be harder than what the Pacquaio fight will be for Floyd because of styles.

    Well I really don't understand why they wouldn't want it to happen. People have been wanting it for like 3 years now and they've just kept delaying it, with the occasional "both camps meeting in secret" rumours coming out every so often.

    Worst comes to worse just get Amir Khan fighting Mayweather haha. If he doesn't bottle it vs Peterson again then throw him in at the deep end against Mayweather, would be interesting.

    I'm not able to watch this but it seems like a really close fight, after looking around the live blog scorecards.

    Mayweather is the best pound for pound fighter since Sugar Ray Leonard. Period.

    I am watching my first boxing match in ages ... what the hell has boxing come down to?

    I miss the days of Tyson and Roy Jones.

    The hell pays to watch these skinny midgets hug each other?
