Pacquiao vs Cotto Fight
Both Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto are considered among the world’s finest boxers. Bob Arum, who had much to do about the matchup, was confident that the fight would be a clash between two multi-title holder boxers. However, initially, many questioned the matchup since Manny Pacquiao is much more perceived to be a better boxer than Cotto.
“The significance of this fight is if you know the body of work of these two fighters... It’s an all-action, all-out battle where guys are going to demonstrate toughness, courage and resilience... There are some fights that should properly be called boxing matches, but this is one where it’s totally accurate to call it a fight.”Quote from http://sports.yahoo.com/box/news?prov=yhoo&slug=ki-paccotto072009&type=lgns.
Recent surveys show that Pacquiao remains to be the top favorite boxer of many groups including boxing organiztions. He was also Time Magazine's cover a few days ago.
Revenue-wise, Arum foresees a the Pacquiao-Cotto fight to supercede the Pacquaio-Hatton MGM Grand Garden's $8.9 million ticket revenue and $850,000 on pay-per-view.
Watch this weekend's great fight between the Filipino hero and the Puerto Rican star as the Pacquiao and Cotto fight shows the world who the real boxer is.
