Pac-man > Cotto...

Cotto looked horrible in his last fight, but the cut he had was huge.

They Finally agreed on a weight (145), but now the only hold up is the money. Pac wants a 65-35 split.

It's not a done deal yet. Sources are saying that Mosley is willing to go down in weight to 140lbs
in order to fight at Pacquiao's weight.

Shane Mosley just called me to elaborate on a news statement that he's willing to go down to 140 pounds to fight Manny Pacquiao in the fall.

"This will put a lot of things to rest," Mosley told The Times. "I don't think [Miguel] Cotto can even make 145, and now I'm saying I'm willing to fight Pacquiao at his weight. I'll do that and go back up to welterweight and fight Floyd Mayweather Jr."

Looks like that was today's news.

Reports from Team Pacquiao say that Canadian advisor Mike Koncz is on his way to the US to relay a message to Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum that Manny Pacquiao has agreed to face Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico on Nov. 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will be at 145 lbs.

Gonna support my fellow countrymen Manny of course.

I just hate it whenever he has a fight, in my place it looks like a month festival all about him.

I'll wait to see pacquiao beat a guy in his prime at his weight before I say he's the best. I think marquez beat him twice and he was robbed. Manny does have heart though and is a great puncher.

All those guys are nobody's. He also makes bigger guys come down to his weight making them spent fighters by the time they get in the ring. Thats Because if they dont, Freddy Roach wont take the fight. He's good real good better than mayweather but I would like to see him fight Shane Mosley 5 years ago at 147. Cotto will be a good fight if it was at 147 at 145 not so good. Cotto already has trouble making 147. He will be spent by the time he gets in the ring.

he moved up to 126 to fight MAB

he moved up to 130 to fight Morales

he moved up to 140 to fight Hatton

DLH CHOSE him AND the weight at which they were gonna fight at

as for Cotto, you do know that he came in at 146 against Clottey....1 pound less to fight a jr welter and now you're assuming he's gonna be drained?


if you say so

and i wouldnt really call sasakul and hatton 'nobodys' since they were lineal champs in those divisions
