I'd second that. I'd love to see Cotto win.
At some point in a Boxer's career, once he has status, money and perhaps even a legacy, focus is lost. They begin doing movie cameos, ads and hanging out with their celebrity buddies until the intensity of training dips and they finally trip.
Watching 24/7 I can't help but feel Money has crossed that line. He has false confidence from his bouts with Ortiz and Marquez. Finally he's fighting a long established P4Per at their weight and domain. Cotto's the best Mayweather has ever faced.
So while I believe Mayweather will W, I believe Cotto has the potential to cause an upset here. At least that's what I'm praying for ...
Ray Leonard v. Duran I anyone? Difference is, Sugar chose to stand his ground while Money's too old to dance.
