Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather May Be Last Huge PPV Fight In History
The Boxing match between these two very skilled fighters, Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather, is one of very few great fights we get in boxing anymore, and the path this industry has taken is in trouble.
When I am figuring who the better bet is by the Odds on Boxing at BookMaker, I always look to see who is more focused on the task at hand instead of the publicity or the pictures or the smack talk.
It is ironic that Floyd "I won't fight anybody I could possibly lose to" Mayweather Jr. says it is "basic common sense" that Pacquiao uses drugs for performance enhancing and that is why he won't fight him and then goes on a tirade about it. He seems to be focusing on the wrong thing with his undefeated record on the line. He brought up this week that the evidence that Pacquiao rose through different divisions and won five different weight division titles is evidence of steroid use. HMMM, excuse me while I whip this out…isn't that the same story he has? I'm sure that is different…whatever.
Mayweather couldn't even place top 8 in "Dancing With The Stars" when he entered that competition. The funny thing about that was that he and his team couldn't hand pick the competitors he must go against every week the way he does in the boxing world nowadays.
He is busy calling out character on a guy he isn't fighting, which gives the focused and big underdog by boxing odds, Cotto something to help him possibly. Mayweather also has a long line of domestic abuse and battery charges against multiple women.
So when he says this week "You all know for a fact I'm not scared. You all know that," maybe he was looking at a bunch of his ex-girlfriends. He is definitely not scared of them, not scared of ducking Manny Pacquiao (only way to put it) and definitely not scared of being sent back to his vacation home for 3 months at a time called JAIL!
Other fighters tend to get disheartened because of what seems to be an impermeable defense making solid strikes on Floyd hard to come by. Mayweather must grease up with K-Y (not Kentucky hehehe) looking at the way fighters' punches seem to slither, slide and ride right off that slick marketing package.
That makes him a tough fighter to prepare for. It would almost be like fighting one of the ghosts from "Ghostbusters" with Ooze dripping off of him. It is like you hit him but it goes through, and even if it was a solid connect, it slides off and you're left with a slimy, sticky mess on your boxing glove.
I guess I should say I am not this one-sided against Floyd Mayweather (42-0, 26 KOs) in the boxing world. It is just the entire incredible boxing experience I remember when I was a kid that has been ruined by corruption, greed and the two scumbag promoters, Don "Killer" King and Bob "the knob" Arum. These big boxing events get more rare every day.
I wouldn't say Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30 KOs) is bad, but Manny Pacquiao and the rest of the incredible boxers out there are also to blame for playing the money game, but what do they care. At the end of the day, they are all multi-millionaires (those who haven't lost, gambled or pissed it away) and we are just a deprived audience dreaming of a boxing world that used to be. Well, HELLO UFC!
I hope I am wrong about boxing and its possible future, but the UFC and all the other MMA organizations just keep growing because of it.
It's great we still have these big boxing events to bet on boxing odds, but I sure wish they would increase with some real number 1 vs number 2 guys in every division.
