Default Mayweather -vs- Cotto is a Waste of Time.

It would have been excellent a couple of years ago. Cotto did not put himself into position for this fight by beating a Margarito who clearly had eye issues and had not fully recovered from his fight with Pacquiao.

Cotto's style would offer NOTHING for Mayweather and his shell. He'll be eating flush counters all night. It would/will end one of two ways, Mayweather by KO or Mayweather by UD with Cotto cycling the championship rounds. Cotto is a great champion and he can still do great work out there, but Mayweather can do better than this IMO.

No question I will pay for this fight if it happens, and I will enjoy every 24/7 leading up to it. However, Mayweather -vs- Martinez is expotentially better since there's actually a chance that Mayweather doesn't easily walk right over him. The timing of Cotto's departure from TR is perfect for this..

With that said.. The PPV #s for Mayweather/Cotto would be crazy. It's got 2 of the top 3 PPV draws in boxing. It's going to be difficult for the Money Team to resist this money.

Better PPV fight than any other fight available. Personally I think Cotto puts a better challenge to Mayweather than Pacquiao based on styles. Cotto's style is close to Castillo when he beat Floyd.

Face it, Arum wont let his cash cow fight Mayweather because his profits wont be as big in a co-promotion.

I agree with you, if it was 2007 it would have been a huge mega fight and one of the most important welter weight match ups since arguably Trinidad-De La Hoya. Things change and it's unfortunate it never happened, but now it's not a very interesting fight, a pretty darn good fight yes, but not the huge mega fight we savagely want. Floyd against Pacquiao, Martinez, and to a lesser extent Canelo are the real mega fights IMO.

Still would watch it and get excited for it, I and many boxing fans have wanted to see that dream match up for so many years now.

It's the next biggest fight Floyd can make. You gotta remember guys, Floyd isn't here to fight all the young lions of the world let alone a full fledged Middleweight. He wants to make the most money he can before he bounces. The only guy that comes to mind as far as creating an event that would be a success with two big fan bases, no other guy fits that bill with Floyd better than Cotto as of right now.

Let me also say a Pac/Cotto rematch would be equally ridiculous. And it's being considered, so I also hope that does not happen. Cotto loads with his hook too much, and his cross is just not that good against the very best of the elite. He will look baffled trying to crack Mayweather's shell. Mayweather will see Cotto's offense coming.

It's a great payday for everyone involved, and a fun event for the HBO cameras.

It's pointless in terms of boxing history. Cotto has not earned this shot with the Margs win, and he won't win the fight. On paper Mayweather will beat Pacquiao as well. Cotto's style and tank of gas does not offer problems for Mayweather. Imo.

Well he fought Ortiz in his last fight so I don't get why you don't think he'll fight a young lion. Canelo would make tons of money, probably equal to a Cotto 'bout if it goes down on May 5th with a stacked Mexican card. Let's face it, Floyd is going to sell regardless of who his opponent is.

Nope, I agree with everything you said. This fight makes perfect sense for Mayweather in terms of where he is on his timeline and where this fight would land financially. It's hard to see how Mayweather won't make this fight honestly. With that said, following the Ortiz fight dud. I'd really like to see Mayweather challenged on some level one last time...
