World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman says that the WBC would welcome a fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto with open arms.

That said, Cotto and Margarito are both Top Rank fighters and negotiations are already underway to arrange to pit them against each other on July 26.

However Don Jose said: “I believe that the people of the world some day will pressure for the Mayweather/Cotto [fight] to happen. I believe it’s also planned to have a fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather in the Fall. The prospect of these fights are very interesting.”

Floyd has already won WBC belts in five weight categories and Don Jose praised him by saying: “Floyd is not only the best of his era. To me he’s one of the best twenty in of the whole three hundred years of boxing! Floyd has also been one of the ten best in the WBC’s history, and I’m talking about Muhammad Ali, Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson!"

“I feel Floyd belongs there. But I also respect and like Cotto. He’s a very strong, very tough fighter, he comes forward and lets the other guy know that he’s in a fight. That’s going to be a helluva fight.

“I do believe that the fight between Floyd and Cotto will happen in 2009, perhaps in May, September or October. But I’m sure that fight is going to happen, and the WBC will not object to it. To the contrary we will support it with open arms.”

I dont know P4P always talking about how is semi- retarted I mean retired. And how is only gonna fight once a year. He alredy got Hatton set up for spring of 2009. I seriouly doubt that he'll fight again that year just a few months apart.

The Hatton fight isn't a done deal yet for one thing. Also, Floyd will fight whenever there is money. He isn't following a strict once-a-year schedule.

You and I both know that the Hatton fight will happen. Just like The oscar fight isnt done but everyone knows its gonna happen. And tell him that he isnt fighting 1 time a year he said it.

He will fight whenever it makes sense. He won't delay a fight with Cotto just because the calendar still reads 2009. That is just silly.

I'll bet you 25K that the fight happens in 2009. If I'm right you pay 25 if I'm wrong I'll give you 500,000.

I'll do the same as shane, except i'll only give you 250,000 if the fight doesnt come off in 09, if it does, you give me 50,000. Now if floyd or cotto lose by then, the deals off, both still must be undefeated for this to happen.
