Yeah thats true.

What do you think of that fight and Floyd going up in weight?

How bout Saul Canelo Alvarez vs Shane Mosley on the same Card?

Obviously its not the fight the world wants to see, but I'm still excited for the match. Cotto is a tough and durable guy who could give Floyd problems early on. Still, its hard to pick against Mayweather simply because of his defense, speed, and cardio. The later the fight goes the more it is likely to favor Floyd.

As for Shane vs Alvarez, its interesting to some degree, but I dont see Shane being able to handle Canelo.

Meanwhile, the entire MMA world has known Nick smokes for years, and tried getting it approved in the past but somehow Nick gets painted as this giant villan who is hurting the sport.

I agree that Nick messed up, because he know
