Even though Floyd Mayweather Jr, is due to report to jail in June for a domestic violence case, he intends to fight Miguel Cotto come May 5. If he gets his way, the fight will take place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden. The champion, who is unbeaten in 42 fights, announced this to the Nevada State Athletic Commission during a recent license hearing.
The champion has been given permission to fight on condition that he adheres to the court's wishes regarding this matter. This includes arriving at jail on the due date. The champion has indicated that this is in order.
Bob Arum, promoter for Manny Pacquiao, feels that this could hinder the fight. Arum wants these two fighters to square up to each other, while Mayweather would rather stand toe to toe with Cotto. Cotto has only been beaten twice, once by Pacquiao and once by Antonio Margarito. Cotto did, however, beat Margarito in a rematch when Margarito failed to respond to the bell to come out of his corner.
Cotto has never fought again under Bob Arum since that fight. Arum promotes fights under his company, Top Rank Promoting. Cotto is now a free agent and can fight the unbeaten champion.
This opens up the possibility of a match between Timothy Bradley and Pacquiao on June 9. Bradley is the junior-welterweight champion and is yet to be beaten. This should pose quite a challenge for Pacquiao. Boxing fans will be treated to quite a spectacle when these two athletes square up to each other.
Whomever, Floyd Mayweather Junior fights, it should be an event to remember. The fighter is classy and remains unbeaten because he is such a skilled fighter. The boxing fraternity can only hope and pray that he gets his private life sorted out so that he can continue to entertain boxing fans throughout the world.
