I usually don't like to post twice in the same day, and the last one took a bit out of me, but there is to be another big welterweight matchup on November 10, this time between Miguel Cotto and Shane Mosley. If you recall, I wrote an earlier blog titled "all about the welterweights" in which I said that division is the strongest in boxing. I also threw out some possible matchups between some of its fighters.
Even with Vernon Forrest and Carlos Baldomir moving to 154, it is still big, especially with the announced Floyd Mayweather/Ricky Hatton bout for Dec. 8. Expect Mayweather to lose for the first time, that's all I've got to say.
Of the other fighters, Kermit Cintron has a cakewalk in a couple weeks with Jesse Feliciano, Judah has his own with Edwin Vazquez, and now Cotto and Mosley sign to go at it. Don't count Mosley out of this one. Just like with De La Hoya and Fernando Vargas, I think Mosley will wear Cotto down and if he can stay away from Cotto's power hand, he should win the fight.
Of the fighters left from the previous blog, that could leave Antonio Margarito and Paul Williams to fight a rematch. Their first fight certainly was good enough to justify one.
Let me know what you think.
