Floyd Mayweather vs Miguel Cotto was a great fight. But people wonder as to why Mayweather is avoiding Manny Pacquiao
Floyd Mayweather has shown his grit and determination in winning a tough fight against Miguel Cotto. It was a fight that could have gone either as both the fighters were looking equally gifted in the middle of it. Mayweather, following the fight, said that he wanted to make the fight interesting and so he prolonged it till twelfth round.
Though there may be some truth into it, as we accept everything from the champion boxer in our stride, but to be true, in the middle of ring with blood coming out of Mayweather’s face, that looks unlikeliest of assumptions.
The champion boxer has come out with flying colors and tons of cash –he got around $32 million from the fight –and much more in proceeds of the match fee and other charges. Cotto despite losing the fight has also become a lot richer with millions of dollars going into his bank account as well.
But the entity that has made the highest amount of money is none other than HBO that made a killing of sorts by earning more than 90 million dollars from the fight.
Notwithstanding the win and the infusion of huge amount of money in his assets, festivities are not going to be very long in Mayweather camp. From June 1, he is going to begin his prison term in home assault case. Though it is not certain that he will spend the whole one month prison term behind bars, he will have to spend at least a few days inside the high prison walls.
Meanwhile people are still looking forward to a super fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao, one of the best pound for pound boxers in the world right now. Manny doesn’t have any objection to fight Mayweather, but he has come with one excuse after the other. Mayweather wants to keep at least 60 percent proceeds of the fight that is unacceptable to Manny Pacquiao.
