Arum Says Cotto Brings More To Pacquiao Than Mosley

Top Rank's Bob Arum is not paying any attention to the recent attacks by WBA welterweight champion Shane Mosley. There have been numerous press releases and dozens of interviews in the last few weeks, where Mosley blasted Arum and the proposed November bout between Manny Pacquiao and WBO 147-pound champ Miguel Cotto. Mosley is angry that Cotto is close to landing the Pacquiao fight. He also took a few shots at Arum for keeping the fight "in-house." Both Pacquiao and Cotto are under contract with Top Rank.

Mosley claims that he brings more money and a bigger fight to the table than Cotto. Arum does not agree. During a recent radio appearance with Dennis Principe of dzSR’s Sports Chat, he said Cotto will bring more fans to the show and has a bigger pay-per-view audience behind him. Arum also says Cotto will bring more money to the table because the Puerto Rican fighter will accept a split that is lower than Mosley's proposed 60-40 split in favor of Pacquiao.

“Manny Pacquiao saw for himself how immensely popular Miguel Cotto is,” said Arum. "Miguel has always done extremely well on pay-per-view. Cotto brings more to the table than Mosley. Miguel brings millions of Puerto Rican fans... those people will be coming for the fight and buy pay-per-view. Cotto has a smaller split than Mosley and Manny can just fight one fighter at a time. Down the road to next year there can always be a Mosley and [Floyd] Mayweather Jr."
