UPDATE: Per Twitter updates (Kevin Iole), Mayeather has been granted a conditional one-fight license by the NSAC to face Miguel Cotto on May 5th for the WBA JMW title. Oh yeah...did I mention that it will take place at the MGM Grand, and not some wack ass invisible stadium?

So we're in the clear with Mayweather, now let's see who Pacqu...well...nevermind him for the moment laugh.gif

This may be one of those ones that try to catch, before the ticket prices rip me a new one. In the event that I make travel arrangements to attend, I will still order the PPV, so I can watch it when I get back home (for discussion purposes and such).

floyd won't get his license

Fat fuck Rafael and Beer Belly Iole are both also corroborating the strong possibility that Floyd's next opponent will be Cotto at 154 lbs.

This is a good fight. Cotto's looked good in his last 3 fights and looks comfortable at that weight. I don't want him gassing out like he did against Pacquiao.

I think Cotto has the ability to make Mayweather think more than he does against his other opponents. Cotto has sound fundamentals, very good power, a stiff jab (when he wants to use it) and I've always liked his movement.

Ultimately, it's basically impossible to outbox Floyd. His skills would have to degrade from aging for that to happen, which isn't the case just yet in his career.

I expect a very good fight and a solid performance from Cotto.
MaxPayne
As per Fat Fuck Rafael's twitter, Mayweather has told the NSAC that on May 5th, Cotto is his opponent.

If this happens, I will be a very happy fan of BOXING. Now we just have to wait for the announcement of Mosley/Alvarez on the undercard and Yaay! for all the boxing fans around the world !
Cshel86
Good points Max! I like Cotto's ability to effectively counterpunch, he just has to make timing his #1 priority in this bout. I know one thing...his ass is about to get PAID!!!

As for Pacquiao, I guess we have to wait for Arum to vomit some useless horseshit about the "negotiations" that he suddenly decide to take part in, and also his announcement of Pacquiao's next opponent.

Funny thing is, I haven't heard much about Pacquiao since the phone call...I wonder how much of a non-story he will be as May 5th approaches. That's unlikely since he fights a month after Floyd which means that both of their fight build-ups will collide and produce great television numbers.

mitukczuk
Too bad its going to be a feast for haters "Cotto=Pac's leftover". Anyway, I am waiting for the Money May twitter to shed some light on this "rumor" ! Until then I am not Yaaying,

For those who want to follow what's being said at the hearing.
MaxPayne
Fuck. Commissioner Day is saying that he is having a hard time granting a license in a case where the prison sentence hasn't been served.
mitukczuk
They are acting as if he were to serve 10 years for murder and armed robbery. God.
MaxPayne
"Avansino tells Wright: We would ask you not to try to defer Floyd's June 1 report date to jail"

Yes, yes, whatever you motherfuckers say. Just grant the license already.
MaxPayne
"Commission is going into deliberations on whether to license @floydmayweather to fight @realmiguelcotto on May 5 in Vegas"

Well, hold your breath and cross your fingers guys.

Exactly! I would hate for us to be stuck with a wack ass Pacman fight this year...

"Chairman Avansino brings up possibility of a one-fight license for May 5 with a number of conditions. Avansino to Floyd: You must comply with every aspect of judge's order, including staying out of trouble. Not easy for celeb, he says."

"Avansino: I'm willing to give Floyd a shot that he will comply with his obligations"

Commish Brady: I'm predisposed to believe Mr Mayweather,

"Commissioners move to grant a conditional license. They say he must report to jail on June 1 with no requests to extend that."

Is that it then? Can we exhale?

Thank god !

Not out of the woods yet guys:

"There is a motion to approve license. They're going through the conditions that will be placed upon it. Expect 5-0 vote in favor SOON".

Let's see the conditions that they place.
MaxPayne
"Voted unanimously, 5-0. Mayweather is LICENSED"

YES ! IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES !

(runs away from desk at work to empty conference room with iPod in hand, fires up "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang and starts dancing maniacally).

WOOHOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!

'Talked to Mayweather: FIght is for Cotto's 154 pound belt. I wnat him to be comfortable, Floyd said of Cotto."

You right on that...have to keep it in the DL. Man, I can't wait for tonight's Fighthype Radio. It'll be great to hear the guys' perspectives on these developments!

So this now means that Pacquiao - Bradley is a done deal.

Im ready as well...Wednesdays are the best! I just dont wanna hear motherfuckers crying about the "megafight" not happening, but hey, Im sure they'll still be callers willing to spill their guts over something that wont happen.

As far as a Pacquiao/Bradley fight, he really has no choice at this point. Either slug it out with JMM again, or move on. Who else can he fight besides these two anyway? I doubt if he has the balls to fight Ortiz, and I doubt if Arum looks in that direction.

Tell me something man...am I crazy for thinking that Bradley has a decent chance to beat Pacquiao ?

I mean, the dude is young, can move, has a jab, I mean...this ain't a walk in the park by any stretch I don't think. Of course, he hits you with pillows and has laughable power, but I just feel like Bradley is tough.

Great fight. Canelo mosley undercard, should alvarez win he can fight mayweather next because we know the pac fight ain't happening.
mitukczuk
Alright. Its up on Money May's twitter. I now fully believe Cotto will be the 43rd. Great fight.

As far as the budget for an Alvarez/Mosley fight, I don't really think it will fit on such an undercard, but I could be wrong. An Alvarez/Mosley fight could easily headline a B.A.D. card, and get Canelo the attention he deserves while fighting a future HOFer.

After FMJ and Cotto get their cut from the card budget, Im not sure if Canelo and Mosley will get exactly what they deserve. Im pretty sure that's how it'll go. Who knows though...somebody help me out here.

I don't think Cotto was a very smart option for Floyd. I think he should have fought Canelo instead because once he beats Cotto, Manny fans will just claim that he fought Manny's leftovers! Even he stated it him self! Although I believe Cotto will be alot better at 154 & can possibly beat Manny at 150+ at this point, I know Floyd won't get his just do! He should have faced the young & scrappy Canelo instead! Yea they say his age & experience is limited, & thats why Floyd probably overlooked him. But he is also dangerous & exciting for the fans as well!

Does the Puerto Rican community generally celebrate Cinco De Mayo in any way ? Is it an event for them as well, or is it strictly a Mexican thing ? Just curious.

Miguel Cotto's son looks like Glen/Glenda from Seed Of Chucky. "Run Glenda" me and my chick crack up laughing everytime we see him in the crowd or on 24/7.

Anyway, I think this is going to be rather interesting. Cotto looked pretty good in his last fight. He won by TKO on the humble but oh well. A KO's a KO. History has shown that Miguel Cotto is better suited fighting in The Big Apple. The times that he ventured out to Las Vegas to fight, he ended up losing. I think the Las Vegas Curse that Cotto seems to have issues with will come into play yet again. I think the pressure of the grand stage and the pressure Floyd will put on Cotto, will wear him down. Everyone who follows boxing and pays close attention would know that Cotto doesn't do well fighting backwards. Floyd will muscle up on Cotto and catch him with something he won't recover from. Timing, accuracy, and a good boxing IQ will overcome on that night. Mayweather will have a tougher than normal night but he will win big.

HYFR....if ya dont know what that means...its Hell Yeah! Fuckin Right! ...yall slippen on your Drake songs. Really it didn't matter who he fought...but this is a great matchup..Cotto is a beast and is well respected. I still will bet the house on Floyd...if I find any challengers..but this shit is awesome. In the words of Bart Scott....CANT WAIT!

I can see where your coming from but the way I look at it is this is a smart move for money. This way he gets a really big pay day against a guy who just got the biggest win of his career and he has Canelo as an option for a next opponent if/when the manny fight falls through again. This way Canelo gets more experience fighting let's say a mosley or dare I say it kirkland and mayweather gets more respect for fighting him and not hearing all this talk about being green.

If I ever met Drake, I might have to hit him with the 2 piece and a side of fries. Motherfucker's voice gives me headaches.

But yeah, I feel you. The Bart Scott quote is perfect for this. Counting down the days!

Doesn't matter if Canelo is fighting on the same PPV.

Man, folks need to just chill and be happy that there's yet another big fight happening in the sport. Damn, some mofos are NEVER satisfied with shit. It's hard to not get sick to the stomach when folks cry about the falling of the megafight, after THIS fight was announced.

Damn, at least the motherfucker is making an attempt to fight somebody, instead of taking a break, or being behind bars. Maybe Im just tired of casual fans who are only going to go on with their boring lives after the "megafight" happens, while hardcore fans will keep the sport going.
