Mayweather vs. Cotto



Mosley has nothing left. It is his fourth subpar performance in a row and likely he is on a big stage. We all have seen his speed and reflexes disappear in back-to-back blowouts to Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao; against Alvarez, his power went too. Mosley's shots were pillow soft and Alvarez walked right through them. Mosley still has a great chin, but he can not score points with it.
This was a big win for Alvarez, who is now in prime position for a big money fight. He has been mentioned as a candidate to face Mayweather later this year. If not, a title unification matchup with Cotto -- rekindling the Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry - would be a war.
- Two members of Mayweather Promotions stunk up the undercard Saturday night. In the opener, fringe 154-pound prospect DeAndre Latimore  knocked out by journeyman Carlos Quintana. Mayweather's protégé, Jessie Vargas, who has become a staple on Mayweather's undercards despite no.
- It has been a relatively uneventful fight week. Besides a brief barking match at the weigh-in on Friday, Mayweather and Cotto have been respectful towards each other. Cotto is not much of a trash talker ,but he has made sure to steer clear of any mental traps Mayweather has put down for him.
- Mayweather's purse for this fight: $32 million. According to Keith Kizer of the Nevada Athletic Commission, that is a state record. Cotto's guarantee is $8 million and both will likely earn more once the Pay Per View receipts are counted.
