Ring King boxing promotions that stage the undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. against the Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto last May 5, 2012 at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas take 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, where the undefeated American boxer obtain unanimous decision win and increase his boxing record into 43-0 (win loss).
Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Oscar De la Hoya fights still the biggest pay-per-view sales in boxing history with 2.4 million pay-per-view buys. That prompted the outspoken boxer Floyd Mayweather to claim that he was the most popular and the best boxer in the world because of his undefeated boxing record and pay-per-view sales record, his Cinco de Mayo fight earned about $94 million from 1.5 million pay-per-view buys.
For me pay-per-view buys and unblemished record is not enough to give Mayweather’s right to claim that he was the great and the king of boxing until he will not face and beat the 8-division world champion of the Philippines.
I still believed that the outspoken boxer afraid to face the Filipino boxer, because what he experience in his Cinco de Mayo, where he eats more lefts from the Puerto Rican fighter and according to him it was his toughest fight and that Pacquiao easily beat Mayweather’s toughest opponent.
