WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto is not concerned with chasing after Floyd Mayweather Jr, who holds the WBC's version of the title at 147-pounds. In the opinion of Cotto, there are more than enough big names at 147-pounds to keep him busy.

“I don’t have to do it. If he doesn’t want to fight me, there are a bunch of big names at 147. I don’t need Mayweather,” Cotto told scribe Kevin Iole.

Cotto says that he will keep on fighting the best boxers at the weight and sooner or later - Mayweather will be forced to fight him. He refuses to chase Mayweather in the same fashion as Ricky Hatton, and he doesn't feel that Mayweather is the pound for pound best in the world.

"I'm in no hurry," Cotto said. "If I have to be patient to face the guy the people and the press call the best fighter in the world, I can wait. He runs from the really good boxers and chases other things. I don't know how people in boxing support him as being first in the pound-for-pound rankings."

He isn't doing shiit. He's going the same route he's been going. Larry Merchant did more calling out than Cotto did.

Cotto is right, he doesnt need Mayweather. He's proving that the best welterweight out there is himself followed closely by Tony Margarito.
Mayweather has only got himself to blame, toying with the WWE instead of meeting his contenders has cost him dearly. Not only is he not the best P4P he's only the third best welterweight Byebye Mayfeather

He obviously does. Hatton wasnt ranked higher than him or even equal to him. So he cares.

It's a good thing there are no CJ Rankings or the sport would be ruined. The sentence in bold proves you to be the biggest moron on this entire website.

Back to the insults I see Shane I knew you were not man enough to abide by your PM's. I stand by that statement Both Cotto and Margarito would kick Mayweathers booty if he ever got the cajonnes to get in the ring with either

I would make an exception for Cotto to be regarded as #1 at 147 for the simple reason he's done much much more than pbf there.

You gotta go with the rings ratings though, untill he's beaten or retires he'll be the #1 guy, im a strong beleiver in the rings ratings.

Calling you a moron is just me being observant. You could go the world over and not find another person who would say Floyd is the 3RD BEST WW! That is just stupid. When Floyd fights Cotto I'll bet you memberships on the fight.

That's bullshiit too. I haven't been saying anything about this guys illegitimate posts in a while, but to call Floyd the 3rd best welter is downright laughable and everyone knows that.
