Mayweather vs Cotto Video: HBO's "Man on the Street" Feature


Here's HBO's "Man on the Street" bit, this time for the May 5 fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Miguel Cotto.

As you can see, it's not easy finding people who think Miguel Cotto is going to win, and it's even harder finding anyone who really thinks he will (or can), and isn't just picking with their heart.

Pay-per-view has become a weird thing in boxing. Most people seem to think, when they ask me about boxing and all that, that PPV is where the only good fights are. This frankly could not be further from the truth. PPV is where the most expensive, most highly-grossing fights are, but by no means are they the best fights. Unless you truly believe that the thing that sells the most is the best, which is a belief system I personally cannot follow, then no, the real best boxing is not on PPV very often. Usually we just get expensive and predictable fights.

But what do I know, people apparently keep watching "American Idol," so I guess that's what they like, no matter how many of us just don't see it that way. Maybe to most people watching predictable fights really is "the best boxing."
