WBA 154-pound champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) believes his size and power will play a significant roles in the outcome of Saturday's fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs).

Cotto, the WBA light-middleweight champion, believes fighting at 154 pounds will be a major advantage for him. Mayweather will be Cotto's third defense at the weight. The fight takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, a five division world champion and the current WBC beltholder at welterweight, has not fought at 154 since a title win over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007.

"No one should forget that I am very comfortable at 154 pounds, and that will be a huge asset going into this match. Also, there's no doubt I have the power to win this fight. If anything, my power has strengthened. That will make the difference," Cotto said.

"The last few years of life have been great for me as a boxer. I have learned quite a bit about myself, and what it takes to win. My fight with Floyd Mayweather will be great and exciting and I know fans desperately want to see it happen."

[QUOTE=ADP02]Wrong .... first choice was Floyd but Floyd wanted all the PPV money (ie. roadblock) I wasn't trying to say that it was Arum not Manny .... I was getting at: Manny can't go up to 154 and doesn't want to for one and that he wants to stay at 147. If he were to try to go back up just ...
