Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto in sight

Another exciting news indeed, after Manny Pacquiao's smooth and sweet victory over Ricky Hatton at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, promoter Bob Arum told reporters that Pacquiao's next fight will likely come against WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto in either November or December. Arum said Pacquiao will be in New York to sit ringside at Madison Square Garden for Cotto's fight against Joshua Clottey. Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto are both signed under Top Rank promotion, on the other hand Shane Mosley who is the current WBA Welterweight and an admirer of Manny Pacquiao was left in the cold corner. A possible fight with Floyd Mayweather jr. vanished in his dreams after the latter refused to fight him but instead will fight the old pachugger 36 lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez.

I like the idea of a Pacquiao vs Cotto bout, that will happen of course if Miguel Cotto will win versus Joshua Clottey, they will fight this coming June 13, '09 for the WBO welterweight title in New York. So what's so good about the Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto fight if it will happen? Well, a possible 7th division championship title for King Manny Pacquiao, I'm not sure about the lineal championship title, I guess not, maybe if Cotto and Mosley or FMJ(Floyd Mayweather jr. is nowhere in the range of Cotto and Mosley, FMJ doesn't like to fight tough fighters like them, since he refused to fight any of 'em that's why I didn't add him to the Pacman wish list) will fight first and whoever wins will be the next opponent for mega (MEGA MONEY) Manny.

Anyway, Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto is just in sight, for the mean time let's chill out and celebrate the mega victory. Hey wait, the Mayweather jr. vs Pacquiao bout is still a big question mark, why? Read this slowly, Floyd Mayweather jr. will fight Manny Pacquiao only by his rules, will only fight at 147 lbs. plus he wants not less than, but more than 50% share of ppv buys. A big joke isn't it? Noone really knows if the fight will ever happen. What do you think Dan?
