Pacquiao feels Cotto has chance vs Mayweather

5 Comments

Although five-time world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is heavily favored to win against Miguel Cotto when they clash this May in Las Vegas, Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao feels the Puerto Rican, who he earlier beat via a technical knockout, should not be underestimated.
Manny said Cotto is a very good fighter and physically very strong and it would be unwise for Floyd to take him for granted.
“Remember, he was leading in points after the first five rounds of our fight,” Manny reminded boxing writers.
Manny said he certainly doesn’t mind if Cotto beats the undefeated Mayweather ahead of everybody else. The eight-division world champ believes Cotto is capable of doing it.

On the other hand, Manny’s trainer Freddie Roach doesn’t think Cotto can beat Mayweather.
He predicts that Floyd Jr. will win this match on points.
Roach also predicted that the Mayweather-Cotto fight will be very boring, “just like all the other Mayweather fights.”

What exactly happened to Mommy Dionesia Pacquiao in the four months that she disappeared from public view?
The mother of the world’s most popular boxer said she had been very very sick and had been to many doctors in General Santos City, but no one could determine what was wrong with her.
“I was very ill. I was afflicted with strange maladies that are hard to describe. I lost considerable weight, my eyes got sunken, and yet my face was swollen. What was scary is that my stomach grew bigger and bigger,” Mommy Dionesia related on national television.
At first she thought that it might be a tumor growing inside her, but tests proved negative.
Her belly grew to a size like that of a woman six months pregnant, but the doctors could find nothing.

“Manny urged me to consult specialists, to have myself treated by the best doctors but I refused, I told him this is not a case for conventional physicians, but for the herbolario. My ailment was not physical.”
After doing the rounds of Gen San, Mommy D said she ultimately found a competent healer in Trece Martirez City, Cavite, who confirmed that she was the object of an occult attack.
It took some time and several treatment from the ispiritista but she eventually got well.
“Gumaling din ako sa awa ng Diyos” she said. “I’m raring to get back to work.”
Her next project is a concert with pop queen Imelda Papin.

:) FLOYD MAYWEATHER SAYS: “The only way I think a fight the guy with three losses and I-don’t-know-how-many draws, the only way that fight happens is he has to leave Bob Arum. And I’m not telling him to leave, because I know how the media is — they take your words and screw them up. They make it the way they want to make it.”

:) Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be asking the Nevada State Athletic Commission for 8 oz. gloves instead of the normal 10 oz. gloves. Although only 135lbs or below is usually only 8 oz. gloves and anything above 135lbs is 10 oz. gloves, we will see if Mayweather gets his wish.

:) Floyd Mayweather now tells Pacquiao “$30 million with no back end pay.” So now it went from $40 to $30 million. Guess he never wanted the fight to begin with.
