The question was simple would he fight Cotto - his response was classic - HE'D RETIRE HIMSELF rather than Cotto...er boxing retire him. Look at Larry Merchant (the old guy) he can't hide his amusement at the reply. Aging warrior and his uncle Roger's No. 1 Pound for Pound fighter in the World (you can't be no.1 if you haven't boxed in a long time and in a retired state genius), Floyd Mayweather, avoids the Puerto Rican slugger Miguel Cotto by leaving the sport. Cotto is 32-0 and Mayweather 39-0. Their match-up would have been one of the most anticipated in boxing history unfortunately Mayweather retired himself and preferred not to fight Miguel. It is a very smart move - Miguel could give Mayweather the match of his life and Money could possibly lose! Or Floyd is just waiting for bigger offer we'll see as of the moment Floyd is chicken!
Watch this video and see why it is better for Floyd to retire himself than Cotto retiring him from boxing. It is a smart decision after all! The punching power of Cotto is unbelievable. His body shots are also spectacular! He and Mayweather would make a good match up. Too bad Floyd chickened out.
