Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto: An Enticing Fight Facing Difficulty

Manny Pacquiao is undoubtedly the best pound for pound boxer in the world at this moment. The Philippino boxer has already bagged six world titles in six different weight divisions, and is now gearing up to become the world’s first ever boxer to win seven world boxing titles in seven weight divisions. That is why, Manny Pacquiao wants to fight for the WBO Welterweight titles current held by Miguel Cotto, in his attempt to make history.

You already know that a November 14 fight between Pacquiao and Cotto has already been announced, but now the fight is facing some problems which could lead to the cancellation of the fight. The problem is that Cotto wants to fight at 147 weight class where he will have some advantage as he would not need to adjust much in terms of weight. Pacquiao, however, wants to fight for the Welterweight title of Cotto and wishes to fight at 145 because the Philippino does not want a fight without having any title at stake. Now, let us see if their promoter along with the players themselves can come under an effective agreement and make the fight possible in November.
