Mayweather vs Cotto fight results are being dissected. Meanwhile Floyd’s retirement and his eluding fight with Manny Pacquiao is hogging the limelight
Mayweather has indicated he is considering retirement after a very tough fight against Miguel Cotto. Many analysts have said that in his whole boxing career, Mayweather was never been pounded with so many punches that Cotto landed on him in a 12 round fight.
There are others who say Mayweather Jr seems frightened to be pitted against another boxer of the same stature as him, Manny Pacquiao. The two rule the boxing world right now and there doesn’t seem to be any credible challenge to them in the boxing world right now. This seems to be the reason almost every boxing-fan wants to see them lock horns in the cage and decide for once and all as to who is better of the two.
Many fans of the boxer from Philippine, Manny Pacquaio, following a tough fight for Floyd Mayweather against Miguel Cotto have suggested that the same boxer who gave a very tough time to Mayweather was summarily beaten by Manny sometimes ago.
Mayweather has been demanding very stringent testing for Manny Pacquiao even on the day of the fight. It is another matter of course that he never ever himself undergoes such stringent testing. Floyd stated if Manny didn’t agree to take random testing up until the day of the fight then there was nothing for the camps to talk about. There were reports and youtube clips where Manny says “I agreed to all the testing that he wants and he still don’t want to fight”.
Meanwhile Mayweather even yesterday repeated when asked if he wanted to fight Manny and said he was not interested in it right now. He went on to add, “I don’t have to fight if I don’t want to”. And from the outset he seemed to be right. He has collected a cool 32 million dollars from match fee alone. Revenues from other sources are going to be at least more than a million dollars.
On the other hand he vaguely talked about leaving the professional boxing world and begin some other business venture. “They say to save the best for last, and if this was my last fight, it was a hell of a fight”, Mayweather said in the post fight press conference.” He made his post retirement plans more than clear when he said, “When I go away, I’ll jot down ideas for my company and my sport”. It was more than evident that he was seriously looking to a life post retirement. But before he retires he is going to serve a one month jail term that is set to begin on June 1.
