- Miguel Cotto: Cotto is fresh off of a victory against Antonio Margarito from a tenth round TKO. Controversy swarms these two fighters that have fought before with claims that Magarito beat Cotto in 2008, because Margarito was using loaded gloves. With this recent win Cotto has gotten his confidence back and is ready to take it into the ring with Mayweather. He fights steady and stays with his opponent and doesn’t throw in many tricks. He shouldn’t try and match Mayweather speed because this will just hinder his performance. Do you think he has what it takes to be Mayweather?
- Floyd Mayweather: Ironically Mayweather is also fresh off a controversial win. He beat Victor Ortiz in September by taking advantage of his inattention and knocking him out cold. While this is a legal move in the fighting world it did ruffle the feathers of the general public, but let’s face it that’s the story of his career. Mayweather is the clear front runner to win this fight with his superior speed and the superior counter punching move make his defense tactics top notch. He also has momentum on his side, hoping to continue his undefeated winning streak. Do you think Miguel Cotto will be the one to break that streak?
