Floyd Mayweather Jr. to Fight Miguel Cotto May 5th, Says Pacquiao Dodged the Fight
As predicted, the highly anticipated match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. won’t be taking place. It was announced today that the Mayweather will indeed take on Miguel Cotto on May 5th in Las Vegas.
Here are details from FightHype.com:
The fight will take place at the full 154-pound limit, and FightHype is saying the WBA junior middleweight title, held by Cotto, will be on the line. But Mayweather (42-0, 26 KO) has balked at fighting for non-WBC belts recently, which forced Shane Mosley to vacate the WBA welterweight belt ahead of their May 2010 fight, because Mayweather wasn’t interested in paying their sanctioning fees.
Cotto (37-2, 30 KO) has been a potential opponent of Mayweather for half a decade now, but working for Top Rank, it never happened.
Mayweather wouldn’t just announce the fight without taking a quick jab at Pac Man who he claims dodged the fight.
