Tomorrow night's main event between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto got a little something added to the build-up at today's weigh-in at the MGM Grand, as a capacity crowd of around 6,000 spectators witnessed one of the great staredowns in recent history.

After the two made weight, the usual staredown photo op commenced, with Mayweather smiling and smacking a piece of gum, and Cotto responding with an emotionless, cold glare. The stare went on much longer than most of them usually do, and as Mayweather's grin faded, the camps started talking, Mayweather said a little, and then Cotto broke his stone-faced demeanor and talked some trash back to Mayweather, nose-to-nose.

The crowd began to get rowdier as the two jawed away, hampered only by Mayweather's toadies throwing in their own unneeded two cents, so that Papa Floyd knew they were there for him. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a great moment that got me just a little more excited for tomorrow's fights.
