Puerto Rico, the first public face to face meeting between Floyd 'Money' Mayweather and Miguel Cotto in a mega PPV battle this May 5th. After a few short words by Cotto, Mayweather took to the mic to say a few words about Manny Pacquiao. "I'm not a cheater like Margarito and Pacquiao." shocking he would state that, when there is a lawsuit against him for deflamation of character by Pacquiao. He didn't stop there, New York City. The Big Apple Mayweather takes the stage again to tell Pacquiao "If your the best, then take the test." A puzzled look was over most people face because they thought that part was finally agreed on. Then comes the final presser in LA where Mayweather stated "If I was Tim Bradley, I would make Pacquiao take the test."
Now the million dollar question, why the attacks on Pacquiao. I spoke to Mayweather myself a week ago and I can't tell you our conversation but I can tell you the reason for this is because he was adamant about fighting Pacquiao on May 5th. That was the fight he wanted, not to say he don't want to fight Cotto, He does, it's just Pacquiao was the main target. After many failed attempts to get the fight made, it was clear that Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum wasn't going to let it happen.
