Well, this appears to be the 2nd best option out there for fight fans. I wondered about the “Saul Canelo” option since he is not yet a household name stateside and it does not make business sense for Floyd to fight in Mexico. Especially Intriguing since Mayweather has to step up in weight for this one. Great payday for Cotto but I feel he gets outboxed here if Mayweather is on his game. Cotto will box intelligently and he is capable of doing this. He is no longer a one dimensional brawler and I would not be surprised if he matched Mayweathers speed in some instances. Floyds accuracy will be the deciding factor. I feel Floyd will start walking Cotto down in the mid to late rounds and force a stoppage within 10 rounds. Besides a Manny Paquiao fight this pairing makes the most business sense since Cotto is a known brand. Besides Cotto gets to walk away with $30 million !! Not bad for a man who appears to be winding down his career.
