With Floyd Mayweather’s upcoming fight against Miguel Cotto set to go down in Las Vegas this Saturday (May 5), the undefeated boxing great covers ESPN Magazine’s newly released “Money Issue.”
During his sit-down with ESPN, Money Mayweather talks about several topics — including his outspoken personality, and uncompromising comments, specifically addressing his comments about Jeremy Lin; and the public perception that he’s “ducking” Manny Pacquiao.
He also addresses criticism over fans’ yearning for a super-fight with the Filipino superstar, saying it all boils to Pacquiao not waiting to agree to his drug-testing stipulation, despite Pac-Man’s camp saying they have.
And finally, Mayweather talks Miguel Cotto, expressing his respect about the fighter, but predicts a knockout at their upcoming bout.
Mayweather vs. Cotto will take place the MGM Grand in Vegas this Saturday, and on HBO Pay-Per-View.
