Mayweather Unsure if Miguel Cotto is Actually a New Man

By Osman Rodriguez

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) is not completely sure if Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) is actually a reinvented fighter. Cotto has claimed that he reivented himself after suffering a bad TKO loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2009. He moved up to junior middleweight and defeated Yuri Foreman, Ricardo Mayorga and Antonio Margarito. Last year he hired Cuban trainer Pedor Diaz, who says Cotto is learning new tricks in every camp.

Cotto will make the third defense of his WBA 154-pound title against Mayweather on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Last time they said a guy reinvented himself was Shane Mosley when he beat Antonio Margarito. Then after I beat Mosley they said he was over the hill. So I can't really speak on it, if he really reinvented himself. He's a solid guy, he's strong, he's tough and he's a guy that I can't overlook," Mayweather said.

Mayweather feels that his own style has changed over the years, because he wants to add more excitement to his fights.

"I think the fans that have supported me over the year can judge how I've changed as a fighter, but I personally think I'm more offensive minded, I'm not moving as much, I'm standing there toe to toe and like I've said before - that's important at this time because I want to give them excitement and [show] that Floyd Mayweather doesn't always have to move," Mayweather said.
