Despite what you may think or how you feel about Floyd “Money” Mayweather you can’t ignore or discredited what he his accomplish over his career (43-0). His latest challenge, might have been his toughest, against Miguel Cotto it was a good old fashion boxing match. Mayweather had to deal with a busted lip, a first; a bloody nose, also a first; and a persistent Cotto to win a unanimous-decision.
With that victory Mayweather adds another title to his long list of title belts. Mayweather has collected eight belts with this being the most impressive. I’ll be the first to say I was impressed by his skills to take a punch or two. Granted, there wasn’t too many because his defensive was truly amazing. The only scare came in the fifth round when Cotto, a future Hall of Famer, connected on a few punches that cut Mayweathers lip, and blooded his nose. Cotto supporters had reason to cheer however, it was short lived.
Mayweather doesn’t shy away from the spotlight and with that he has no problem talking about his earnings. For an example in this fight Saturday against Cotto “Money” Mayweather was guaranteed $32 million just for the fight, not to mention what he will earn from the pay-per-view numbers. My guess he will earn in the neighborhood of $50 million, no wonder why he goes by money.
With all that money and those title belts Mayweather at 35 years-old has contemplated walking away from it all. When asked about it after the fight Mayweather said “more like 80-20”, I’ve been feeling that even before this fight”. Outside the ring he has a battle he can’t block. He is due to serve-out a short jail sentence from a domestic abuse case from his old girl friend. Let’s hope that his fire to fight doesn’t burn out when he returns from jail.
One person will be waiting for him.
Will it ever happen? To be determine.
