Mayweather vs Cotto: Floyd Says Pacquiao Ducked Him

Floyd Mayweather Jr, who was today granted a license to face Miguel Cotto on May 5, explained briefly why he's fighting Cotto instead of Manny Pacquiao, something that bizarrely seems to have caught a lot of boxing's casual "fans" and lookie-loos off-guard, as they appear to have woken up this morning believing there was a chance of Mayweather-Pacquiao in May:

I'm fighting Miguel Cotto on May 5th because Miss Pac Man is ducking me.

The merits of Mayweather's claim are debatable at best, but that's what he said.

Cotto also made use of Twitter already today, saying that he "will beat" Floyd Mayweather on May 5. Cotto was Manny Pacquiao's first choice for his next fight, too, but Cotto didn't want to fight at 147 pounds again, and Pacquiao wouldn't go higher.

Pacquiao now is likely headed into a fight with top 140-pounder Timothy Bradley. That bout is tentatively scheduled for June 9, but could be moved back.
