Cotto vs Mayorga Fight Video

Play Video Play Video
Watch the exciting fight between Miguel Cotto and Ricardo Mayorga below.

Cotto and Mayorga face off against each other at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Both fighters lost two out of their last five fights. Cotto lost by brutal knockouts in the hands of pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao and the tornado from Tijuana in Antonio Margarito.

Mayorga also lost getting knocked out by Oscar dela Hoya and Shane Mosley. So these two fighters have a lot in common. They lost to topnotch fighters and they lost in brutal fashions. Fight fans around the world will see which of them will rise despite the aforementioned setbacks. Whoever wins this fight will prove that he's still got it and deserves to be there among the world's top pugilists. God knows what's in store for whoever loses.

In a recent interview Don King said "It think it's a very exciting fight, something explosive, because Mayorga and Cotto, they create excitement, Mayorga's only real opponent has been himself. But he's a very talented guy and he creates excitement. People want to know: Which Mayorga will they see? He's on the comeback trail, but he's still loco, still crazy, still the crazy man."

Cotto and Mayorga have only one common opponent - the Great Sugar Shane Mosley. As anyone who follows boxing knows, common opponents between fighters are not very reliable in indicating the outcome of a certain fight. We all know that. Still it's worth pointing out that Cotto won against Mosley via unanimous decision while Mayorga got knocked out in the final round by Mosley. Both fights were very competitive so it's very interesting to know how Cotto and Mayorga will fare against each other come fight night.

Pacquiao Mosley Fight Video

Play Video Play Video
Manny Pacquiao on his fight against Shane Mosley and why he chose this fight over other challengers. The video of the fight will be shown on May 7, 2011. Who will be your bet to win between the two future hall of fame fighters?

Arum said that Mosley is the most recognizable name and will be a difficult fight for Manny Pacquiao. Arum who met with Pacquiao before making the fight. There are also rumors that people are saying that Pacquiao hasn't fought an African-American fighter that's why he agreed to do this fight but the main reason is because Mosley is the biggest name and will be the bigger pay per view draw.

Pacquiao was recently criticized by Golden Boy co-owner, Bernard Hopkins, of not fighting African American fighters. In this fight, Pacquiao will be facing a fighter who can match his speed compared to the other fighters he has faced in the past. One question in this fight though will be Mosley's age. He's still a solid fighter but he is past his prime notably in his last fight. Mosley already fought Mayweather who he almost knocked down.

Whatever the reason for this fight, while we wait for Mayweather to gather his balls and finally let the world know who really is the best between him and the Pacman, this fight will serve as a barometer how Manny will be able to fight someone who is as quick and powerful as him.
