Default Mayweather vs Cotto

So what are your guys thoughts on this fight? How do you see it going?
Did you catch the FACEOFF with Max Kellerman yesterday?

I think it's the first opponent that I see who respects Floyd so much.

Im the biggest Floyd fan in the world next to J.B. but even I thought it was Fu@# Up for Floyd to be asking for the score of the OHio game and checking his tablet instead of paying attention but that his thing I know.

Wow, I never knew I was the biggest Floyd fan in the world. I could actually make a laundry list of things I don't like about him, but I guess I spend so much time defending him on the internet that most people would think I'm his lawyer. Maybe I should call him about that, see if I can get on the payroll!

I actually think this fight is dangerous for Floyd, and while I didn't see the faceoff with Kellerman, I have been worried about this fight in terms of where Floyd's head is. A part of me is actually rooting for Cotto to knock over the apple cart, just because I like him, but I don't really think it's gonna happen. Floyd is just too good at this game...it's like playing chess with Bobby Fisher.

Floyd's biggest struggles have always been against guys who pressure him, but Floyd adjusts extremely well and usually makes his opponents give up trying to pursue him. It just depends how strong Cotto is mentally for this. It's a dangerous fight for Floyd knowing he lacks the power to finish Cotto - it took a loaded-glove Margarito 11 rounds and Pacquiao 12 rounds to finish Cotto and Mayweather's offensive output doesn't even compare to those guys'. Obviously, I'm rooting for Cotto but I think Floyd will get the nod via decision.

I haven't watched Face Off yet, but maybe I'll download it during my lunch and check it out.

I'm actually more excited to see the Mosley/Canelo fight than I am this one.
