If I had to grade this card, I'd give it a C+, maybe a B- if I'm really pushing it.
This is a huge fight, a fight that will most likely break the 1 million Pay Per View's sold barrier. It's also one of the more expensive ones, and will probably run $55.00 or more.
So why am I a little disappointed with the card? Well, the undercard!
I'm perfectly fine with the main event. Cotto is a legitimate fighter and will put forth a spirited effort in what I believe will be a closer fight than most people think.
The undercard is a sham. It seems more like Mayweather self-promotion to me. Allow me to explain.
Canelo Alvarez is seen as a future Mayweather opponent and what makes a resume look better than beating, and possibly knocking out, a former multiple title holder and future Hall of Famer? My problem with this fight is Mosley is clearly done and has been done since he the Floyd fight. His last good performance was against Margarito more than three years ago. This is his fourth title shot in five fights and I frankly don't believe he deserves it.
The next two undercard fights are build-up fights for two fighters under the Mayweather Promotions banner, Jesse Vargas and Deandre Latimore. These two fighters are hardly deserving of a spot on the undercard of an event of this magnitude, but since their boss man is headlining it, they're getting a shot at the spotlight to further their own careers.
So overall, the card is mediocre at best.
