Boxing fans are all set to watch Floyd Mayweather, Jr. battle Miguel Cotto on Saturday night, despite the fact it's not the real fight they want to see. 

Everyone knows that the fight in the boxing world would be Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, but sadly, it may never happen.

Still, Cotto and Mayweather should produce an entertaining bout, pleasing those fans who watch.

With that said, here's all the info you need to know about how to catch the fight, as well as my predictions on the big match. 

 

When

Saturday, May 5 at 9 p.m. ET 

Where 

MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas

Watch 

DIRECTV Pay-Per-View

HBO Pay-Per-View

Prediction 

Expect this to be a hard fought battle in the early going, with heavy blows traded throughout. Mayweather is the overwhelming favorite, but that doesn't mean Cotto can't win. 

In order for Cotto to pull off a miraculous upset, he'll have to be on his A-game, hope that Mayweather has an off night and make this an all out war. 

Since all of that is unlikely to happen, clearly I have Pretty Boy Floyd winning on Saturday night.

He's one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world today, and his speed will be entirely too much for Cotto to handle.
