Why would there be a need to make it at 150 though? Cotto is the WBA Light Middleweight Champ. He's fought in this weight class for 3 fights in a row already. He only asked for weight stipulations in the last fight to give Margarito an inconvenience.

So again, why make it at 150? Why make a specific catch weight when both fighters have no problem with the 154 limit? It makes no sense.

Cotto could come in at any weight and Floyd will still beat him. Martinez is a different kettle of fish, as they say.

Cotto is a small dude, in fact Mayweather has some length on him. The weight at which they fight DOES NOT matter at all. Both can make 150 or 154 easily. Stop talking BS about weights.......Mayweather is just trying to save his face and doing a good job at it, and you are all buying it. He will beat Cotto's ass regardless. So why not 154 then for Martinez Floyd???? GUESS WHY FOLKS!! All this catchweight nonsense....grow up. All these so called star boxers are all the same.

Oh and I'm not supporting Pacquiao, F*CK EM BOTH!!!!!!

I'll be watching boxers that are hungry and willing to FIGHT! They deserve the attention not this circus. I hope Miguel wins though, because he is one of those.
Stop being a Martinez hater... Just because Martinez offered Pac and Floyd a fight at 150 does not mean you can bash him. He's just trying to get paid.

Because Martinez has a chance against Mayweather and Cotto doesn't.

Floyd was answering a reporters question, just throwing out a weight, because Martinez is not a viable option at this time. Sergio already has a fight scheduled and he's a middleweight. Why don't you wait until after May 5th when the fight has a realistic possibility before you start complaining about details that are ironed out during the negotiating period.

Manny is the face of the Philipines and the face of boxing, he will be president so, he should be a true filipino and face Martinez at 150lbs...he fight Margarito at 150lbs.
