Bob Arum insisted that the possibly of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather meeting next year was strong, but almost certainly ruled out the May 5th date in Las Vegas mentioned by Floyd Mayweather’s team.
The 80 year-old was speaking at the post-fight press conference for Miguel Cotto’s ten round battering of Antonio Margarito on Saturday night and also mentioned that both fighters want the fight, which could happen next year, to be made sooner rather than…

By Marcus Richardson: I know this is kind of an unpopular subject but I think WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto got saved by the ringside doctor’s decision to halt last night's fight before the 10th round because Antonio Margarito’s right eye was almost closed. Cotto had been stunned earlier in the 9th round from a big left hand from Margarito, and didn't look the same after that shot. Cotto was also looked gassed. If you're a Cotto fan, the ringside doctor showed great timing to…Continue

Hottest rumor in boxing is running rampant at Madison Square Garden and a well placed HBO source just confirmed to me that his ears are ringing from hearing it also. There will be no Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao Super Fight on May 5 in Las Vegas if Miguel Cotto, finishing up his contractual obligation to Uncle Bob Arum and Top Rank in his revenge rematch here Saturday night against disgraced Mexican handwrap cheater Antonio Magrarito, wins this bout. Why? Because Boricua Bomber Cotto,…Continue
It's kind of hard to think that these two men, Cotto and Margarito, are only fighting each other. They're going to target and hurt each other, but it goes beyond that. They're fighting for more than the epic Mexican-Puerto Rican rivalry. They fight for more than a World title. It's even more than their personal vendetta since they don't like each other. It's about the demons that cast before…Continue
