Mayweather vs Cotto full fight video preview for tonight's (May 5) HBO PPV event

What's one last fight preview amongst friends?

Tonight (Sat., May 5, 2012) will not only bring us the UFC on Fox 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" event in New Jersey, but one of the biggest boxing matches of the year. Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring to do battle against Miguel Cotto for the light middleweight championship at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event, which airs live on HBO pay-per-view (PPV), starts at 9 p.m. ET.

Mayweather, considered by some to be the pound-for-pound best in the world, brings his spotless 42-0 record to the squared circle for this colossal showdown. Cotto, meanwhile, has lost just twice; once to Antonio Margarito in a highly controversial fight (a loss he avenged last year) and once to Manny Pacquiao.

Essentially, just short of a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, it doesn't get much bigger than this, folks.

This match-up will take place at 154-pounds. "Money" weighed in at 151-pounds, while Cotto came in right at the limit. For full weigh-in results click here. For staredowns from the weigh-in click here and for a photo gallery of the weigh-ins click here.
