Floyd Mayweather Vs. Miguel Cotto Scheduled For May 5

Quote:
In news that directly impacts the UFC, Floyd Mayweather will be fighting Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas on May 5. The news came during Floyd's licensing hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission today, ending speculation about who Mayweather would fight after the idea of a bout with Manny Pacquiao was shot down yet again.

While Mayweather was calling out Pacquiao, Top Rank said Manny wouldn't be ready by May 5 due to a cut suffered in the Juan Manuel Marquez fight last November while Floyd is locked into the date due to the terms of his delayed jail sentence.

The UFC is holding their third effort on the Fox network that same night and I imagine the plan will be to play up the "our fights will be done before Floyd and Miguel enter the ring" angle as they did for the first Fox show, which was the same night as Marquez vs. Pacquiao.

I don't know if they'll find the same success this time around given the dip in ratings for the second Fox effort but it will be interesting to see if the idea of piggybacking on big boxing dates continues to pay off for the UFC. And, make no mistake, this was a planned move. Mayweather had May 5 locked up before the UFC announced the date and it is traditionally a major boxing weekend.

I do think we can count on some juicier quotes from Floyd on the UFC trying to steal some of his thunder than we got from Arum and Pacquiao last time around.

I see Floyd fighting him at his own weight and not like Manny making him lose a fair bit.


Its a shame we're not going see Floyd v Manny because I'd have loved nothing more than watching Floyd toy with him.

Awesome Floyd is fighting Cotto at light middleweight to prove a point. Can't actually wait for this fight.
