A May 2nd match between Cotto and Alvarez will outsell any fight Floyd is willing to make, which will likely be the winner of the Khan/Alexander fight.

I would much rather see him fight Cotto or Ward... Instead of dropping down to 154 and watch him trying to chase Floyd....he's powerful, but seems very slow. And honestly, every fighter calls out Mayweather, because they want the big money fight...so, he'll always be 'ducking' somebody. I would rather see Thurman vs Mayweather... although it won't happen because he's high risk, low reward...just like GGG.

I believe Cotto will beat Alvarez by close decision. This should pave the way for either a match with Golovkin or a rematch with Floyd. I'd rather see him go up against GGG than a rematch with Floyd. Mayweather is now at the stage of his career where he will clinch and run all through the fight. He threw an average of 27 punches per round in his last match, who wants to see that? The problem is, GGG needs to find a way to increase his stock between now and next September so he can become a household name and bring in the PPV buys. He is big with boxing fans, but the casual fan hasn't truly caught on yet. The only guys out there for him to fight between now and then are even more obscure.
