WBC welterweight title: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Miguel Cotto

WBC light middleweight title: Saul Alvarez vs. Shane Mosley

Saturday, May 5 – at Las Vegas, NV (HBO-PPV)

The undefeated Mayweather, (41-0, 25 KO's), a seven-time world champion in five weight divisions, remains boxing's biggest attraction, wowing crowds and generating record pay-per-view numbers each time he steps into the ring. Mayweather sounded like he had a cold, but he said it was because he had just awakened for the noontime gathering. And if he looked tired, well it was because he's been to so many press conferences in the past that they're all beginning to feel the same.

Floyd Mayweather has what it takes to be a boxing champ, and so does Miguel Cotto. This is undoubtedly the most followed boxing bout of the year as two champs clash in the ring amidst spectators and analysts. Labeled as Ring Kings, these two will show their extraordinary boxing prowess as they fight pound-for-pound for the most coveted Super Welterweight Title.

Cotto (36-2, 29 KO's), from Caguas, Puerto Rico, has held a world title every year since 2004 while winning 16 of the 18 world championship bouts in which he has fought. Puerto Rico's most exciting fighter and one of its greatest of all time, Cotto held the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Junior Welterweight crown from 2004-2006, successfully defending it six times before vacating it to capture the WBA Welterweight title at the end of 2006.

Cotto is putting his WBA 154-pound title on the line against Mayweather (42-0, 26 KOs) in a 12-round match at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in a pay-per-view showdown Saturday night.

This weekend's bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto promises to be intriguing on a number of levels. Technically, Mayweather is a pretty decent favorite coming for a reason; however, there are certain things that do bode well for Cotto...if you want to see them badly enough.

Chief among those things: even though we often get on Manny Pacquiao for his propensity to fight guys when there are better adversaries out there, Mayweather also subscribes to the same opponent-picking model. That's not a slight against either guy, by the way, it's just something top-tier fighters not named Sergio Martinez seem to do. They go out and square off against guys who they really have no business squaring off against.

So just by virtue of being the most legitimate foe that Mayweather has faced since 2007, Cotto has some sort of shot. How good that shot is, though, can be debated.
