The current WBA (Super) light middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will defend tonight, Saturday, May 5, 2012, his title against the undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The winner of this 12-round bout will also winning the vacant WBC Diamond light middleweight title.

Miguel Cotto who came from a big tko victory against Antonio Margarito last December is very serious on this job for it is the third defense of his WBA title. Cotto who weighed at 154 pounds yesterday has much lot of respect against seven-time and five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. who weighed also at 151 pounds yesterday.

This time around, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will also be tested because maybe it's the first time he'll be facing a complete and huge opponent fighter like Miguel Cotto. But Mayweather can do a lot in the ring. He's just a complete tactical fighter with huge defense that no opponent could hardly break it. 

Cotto is the champion on this weight level but he is the underdog of this bout and many boxing fans said he looks drained yesterday at the weigh-in and Mayweather was in a good shape. Yet who knows?, maybe this is Cotto's night. . let's see..
