One of the potential sticking points has already been defined, Arum revealed Thursday. He said a consultation with Cotto's nutritionist has made it clear the catch weight must be in the 144-145-pound range.
Cotto weighed in at 146 for the Clottey fight.
I'm sure that Pac will go ahead with the fight even if Cotto has some excesses.
I'm assuming that it will be stipulated in the contract: FINE for excess poundage.
Now, why couldn't Cotto simply weigh 146 and pay the fine? Would it be fair to both of them? Pac for the danger of fighting a legit welterweight and for Cotto paying for his advantage?
Why didn't DLH simply pay the fines against Pac. I don't know about the details.
